'Agent Carter' Enlists 'White Collar' Actress Bridget Regan
Bridget Regan is headed to Agent Carter.
The actress will play Dottie, a recurring character Marvel is describing as “a small-town girl from Iowa who’ll have a huge impact on the life of Agent Carter.”
Regan recently appeared on the big screen in Keanu Reeves' John Wick, and is also known for her work on USA's White Collar.
Agent Carter takes place in 1946, with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) stuck in an administrative job with SHIELD precursor Strategic Scientific Reserve. When her pal Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) is framed for a big crime, she must work to clear his name and find the real perpetrators. James D'Arcy also stars as Stark butler Jarvis. (Does that name sound familiar?)
The series premieres on ABC in January. If you can't wait that long, Atwell will be appearing on Agents of SHIELD Nov. 18.
Nov. 6, 1:25 p.m. An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated when Atwell would appear on Agents of SHIELD. THR regrets the error.
