Patton Oswalt Reports To ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’
The Hollywood Reporter’s latest announcement is pretty much made up of what I believe are Christmas Miracles, Patton Oswalt will be suiting up for a tour of duty on Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC. According to the Marvel website Oswalt will portray Agent Eric Koenig in an upcoming episode of the series. For non-comic books fans, Koenig was in Nick Fury’s World War II battalion, the Howling Commandos.
The King of Queens and Ratatouille star says he came on the show in almost the most straightforward way possible “I got a call from my agent saying they want you on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and I said ‘hell, yes,’” recalls the actor. This won’t be the first pairing of Oswalt and Marvel’s prodigal son, Joss Whedon. The duo had worked previously on the short-lived Fox show, Dollhouse.
Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return with new episodes Tuesday April 1st. 8pm on ABC, please keep watching so we don’t lose another great show to TV heaven.
