'Agents of SHIELD' Spinoff Casts Delroy Lindo
ABC's Agents of SHIELD spinoff — known as Marvel's Most Wanted — is adding a new name to its team.
Delroy Lindo has joined the cast of the pilot starring Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Once considered a spinoff of Agents of SHIELD, the drama follows the adventures of Bobbi Morse (aka Mockingbird) and Lance Hunter.
Lindo will play Dominic Fortune, who first appeared in 1975's Marvel Preview #2 in a story written and drawn by comics legend Howard Chaykin. A rogue and adventurer in the 1930s, Fortune craved wealth and excitement with his globe-trotting odysseys.
The role brings Lindo back to the ABC fold after the network's short-lived drama Blood & Oil. Other recent credits include TV series Believe and The Chicago Code and the Point Break film reboot. He is repped by APA.
Marvel's Most Wanted is being written by Agents of SHIELD's Paul Zbyszewski and Jeffrey Bell with Jeph Loeb also on board as exec producers on the ABC Studios entry.
