Edward James Olmos joins the cast of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

01.08.2015

agents-of-shield-marvel-banner While Agent Carter is now in full swing (check out our review of the first episodes here), Marvel hasn't forgotten Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The show is currently on hiatus, with the latter half of season 2 returning in March. When it does return, it will also return with a heavy hitter. Adama himself, Edward James Olmos, will join the cast as Robert Gonzales, who evidently will change things up in a big way for Agent Coulson and his team.

Executive producer Jeph Loeb had this to say:

Edward James Olmos brings an amazing gravitas to any role he inhabits, something we knew we needed for Robert Gonzales. When Olmos first appears on our series, everyone will have to take notice--including our favorite Agents.

Olmos has cemented himself in the annals of sci-fi history with his roles in BLADE RUNNER and the infamous Battlestar Galactica. Loeb isn't messing around when he says Olmos brings gravitas to any role he inhabits, as he could do a dramatic reading of the telephone book and I'd still be enthralled. This new addition will add some serious credibility to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and ensure that some butts will be planted in seats come the show's return in March.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return to televisions on Tuesday, March 3 at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC.

Hudson... Agent Dale Cooper and now William Adama. Is there anymore proof needed that Agents of Shield has been going in the right direction since the Winter Soldier tie in? Incidentally, when I read "Can you guess which Battlestar Galactica character joined the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast?" on FB, I automatically assumed it was Katee Sackhoff what with the Kree connection finally becoming official in the series.

Cool news, would have liked some more details on who his character is but whatever.

Hopefully he sticks around for a few episodes, unlike Lucy Lawless who was only in one episode then killed off.

EJO is a great actor but how is BG "infamous" that suggests that it was a bad series which it clearly isnt

"Oh, Dusty. In-famous is when you're MORE than famous. This man El Guapo, he's not just famous, he's IN-famous"
That's the answer you are looking for

Infamous is actually a negative definition. It means "well known for some bad quality or deed".

Synonyms include, disreputable, notorious, wicked etc. So using the word infamous to describe this series is bad. It doesn't mean more than famous.
