With Hayley Atwell already locked in to star in ABC's eight episode first season of AGENT CARTER, it is time to cast her supporting players. Rumors have swirled that CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER co-star Dominic Cooper may reprise his role as Howard Stark, but Peggy Carter's fellow SSR agents need to be chosen as well. CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been developing scripts and needed to fill the roles of two primary agents.

ONE TREE HILL and SOUTHLAND star Chad Michael Murray will join as SSR Agent Jack Thompson while former DOLLHOUSE star Enver Gjokaj will play Agent Daniel Sousa. No other casting has been announced yet.

Agent Carter picks up in 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her lifeSteve Rogers.

AGENT CARTER will premiere during AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.'s winter hiatus and give viewers an uninteruppted nine months of Marvel small screen programming. If you weren't sold on AGENT CARTER, also know that CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER directors Joe and Anthony Russo will be directing the second and third episodes of the debut season. The Marvel One-Shot that inspired AGENT CARTER has shown there is definitely some room for intriguing stories in the retro era of the Marvel Universe. Here's hoping we get some more solid casting news for the show soon.

I'm hoping the howling commandos get showcased in one of the episodes.

I'm hoping they get showcased quite a bit, I've been wondering if Marvel planned to do anything with them after going to the trouble of introducing them all in Captain America, and this seems perfect.

The best part of this news is that the Russo Brothers are going to be directing a few episodes.

And I'm hoping Dominic Cooper shows up in a few episodes too. Would be cool to see and know more of Tony's Dad.

Enver was fantastic in Dollhouse. Knowing Marvel they'll somehow tie this new character into the bit part he had in The Avengers.

Enver Gjokaj is another of Joss Whedon's alumni! I thought he was the best actor in Dollhouse as Victor.

I'm glad he's involved.

8 episodes, a great line-up of directors (the Russos, Joe Johnston, D'esposito) an overarching story, and centered around established characters. This is how Marvel SHOULD be approaching TV.
