Multi-hyphenate (actor/writer/director/producer) J. August Richards is probably still best known to the world at large for his performing work, starring on all five seasons of ANGEL and recurring on MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD as the heroic Deathlok. Other regular gigs have included two seasons as a lawyer on RAISING THE BAR , one season as a law officer on KEVIN (PROBABLY) SAVES THE WORLD, and now as a doctor on NBC’s upcoming COUNCIL OF DADS. However, Richards has been getting a lot of recognition for his other talents as well. He has been nominated for Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Directing […]Read On »

MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD: Chloe Bennet, Clark Gregg and Elizabeth Henstridge give the scoop on Season 6 – Exclusive Interview

MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. seemed to have wrapped up its various storylines at the end of Season 5 in an episode entitled “The End.” SHIELD director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) chose to deny himself a life-saving antidote that Daisy/Quake (Chloe Bennet) could instead use it to save the world. Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) also died heroically, but due to a time paradox, another version of Fitz was still in stasis in space, leaving the possibility that his wife Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) might someday find him. We last saw Coulson on a beach in Tahiti, enjoying his last days with […]Read On »

In Season 5 of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, Friday nights on ABC, our heroes have returned to the present from the future, but at possibly great cost. It looks like the agents’ leader Phil Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, may lose his life in the series’ 100th episode, reported to be a game-changer. Prolific actor Gregg has played Coulson off and on in feature films since 2008’s IRON MAN. The character was killed in 2012’s THE AVENGERS, but was alive again when MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD premiered in 2013, a revival eventually revealed to have been engineered with painful alien […]Read On »

Season 5 of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD has been a busy one for Henry Simmons’s character, Alphonso “Mack” Mackenzie. When the team is thrust into a future ruled by hostile Kree aliens, Mack and his significant other Yo-Yo (Natalia Cordova Buckley) inspire the cowed human populace to rise up against their oppressors. Additionally, although Mack (unlike some of his fellow agents) is a regular human with no super abilities, he was the one to personally bring down Kree leader Kasius (Dominic Rains) in the midseason finale. However, we’ll have to stay tuned for when MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD returns for […]Read On »

As is often the case, all hell is breaking loose on AGENTS OF SHIELD, Tuesday nights on ABC. As the fourth season ramps up toward its finale, Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) and Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) are trapped in the computer-created artificial world of the Framework, along with virtually everyone they know. The difference is that Daisy and Jemma remember who they are in the real world. Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), top S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and former director of the organization, thinks he’s a high school teacher who’s new to espionage. S.H.I.E.L.D. director Jeffrey Mace (Jason O’Mara) has just been murdered […]Read On »

It’s rare for an American show to have two Scottish actors as regulars both playing Scottish characters. However, MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, now in its fourth season Tuesday nights on ABC, boasts Iain De Caestecker as Dr. Leopold Fitz and John Hannah as Dr. Holden Radcliffe. De Caestecker has been with AGENTS OF SHIELD since its premiere. His Fitz is a tech genius whose adoration of erstwhile classmate, biological whiz Dr. Gemma Simmons, played by Elizabeth Henstridge, is now requited. Hannah joined the series in Season 3 as Dr. Holden Radcliffe, a pioneer in the field of artificial intelligence. Until […]Read On »

Clark Gregg is having a busy fourth season on MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, Tuesday nights on ABC. As S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson, formerly the director of the organization, he’s back to running things behind the scenes, even though Jeffrey Mace (Jason O’Mara) is still technically in charge of the agency that monitors – and sometimes rescues – super-inhumans. However, this year, Coulson is out in the field a lot more, tangling with alien-powered ghosts and currently dealing with Life Model Decoys (LMDs), also known as very lifelike androids.
