‘Agents of SHIELD’ Casts Adrianne Palicki as Mockingbird

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” has cast Adrianne Palicki as Marvel hero Bobbi Morse (aka Mockingbird) in season 2, Variety has confirmed.

Mockingbird is described as a super-spy who will make her first appearance in the fifth episode of “SHIELD’s” second season — but she may not be an ally to the newly promoted Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team.

It’s not Palicki’s first superhero role — the “Friday Night Lights” alumna starred as the titular heroine in NBC’s ill-fated “Wonder Woman” pilot, and appeared in The CW’s scuttled “Aquaman” pilot in 2006. She reunited with “FNL” showrunner Jason Katims last season for a recurring role on NBC’s “About A Boy,” which she will reprise in season two.

Palicki joins other season 2 cast additions including Lucy Lawless as Isabelle Hartley, a veteran SHIELD agent; Nick Blood as mercenary Lance Hunter; Reed Diamond as Daniel Whitehall, a HYDRA agent known as the Kraken; Henry Simmons as SHIELD agent Alphonso “Mac” Mackenzie, and Simon Kassianides as Bakshi, a loyal right-hand man.

The introduction of Mockingbird was teased at the show’s recent Comic-Con panel in San Diego, where she was mentioned in a video clip featuring two of Patton Oswalt’s Agent Koenig characters.

Palicki is repped by WME and Anonymous Content. “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” premieres Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
