One of the stars of the NBC drama series “Heroes” has joined ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Adrian Pasdar will play a “jerk” who creates trouble for the team of secret agents.
Pasdar will appear in at least one episode of the drama as Major Glenn Talbot, a character who is known as “one of the many military menaces to the incredible Hulk,” the story notes.
The actor told Marvel.com, “Every show needs a jerk, [and] I guess I’m that guy. I make everybody else look so nice. I think it was Walt Disney who said it, ‘The show’s only as good as the bad guy is bad.’”
Pasdar’s first episode will air in April, although a specific date hasn’t yet been announced. He hinted that his role will last longer than one episode, telling Marvel.com, “There had to be a little bit more in it than just an episode for me. So I can’t say much more but the mustache is in a locker and it’s being taken out and prepped as we speak for next week.”
