Adrianne Palicki Will Play Mockingbird in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Adrianne Palicki may have missed out on playing Wonder Woman, but now she'll get to play super spy Mockingbird in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a consolation prize. Also known as Agent 19, the character will appear in the fifth episode of the upcoming season, possibly in an antagonistic role.
Co-star Patton Oswalt hinted that Mockingbird might join their ranks at San Diego Comic Con:
Adrianne Palicki is arguably best known for playing fan favorite Tyra on Friday Night Lights, but she's no stranger to the comic book scene. She played the villain Nadia in the television short Aquaman, she played a Kryptonian vessel on Superman prequel Smallville, and she was set to play Wonder Woman in a 2011 television series, but the pilot wasn't picked up.
Palicki joins a number of other exciting guest stars in the upcoming second season, including Kyle MacLachlan as Skye's father, Lucy Lawless as agent Isabelle Hartley, and Reed Diamond as Kraken, a villainous member of HYDRA. The season will premiere on September 23 at 9pm on ABC.
