Boardwalk Empire's Shea Whigham Will Play Male Lead in Marvel's Agent Carter
Marvel's Agent Carter has finally cast a male lead. Boardwalk Empire actor and True Detective alum Shea Whigham will play opposite Hayley Atwell on ABC's newest non-superhero show.
Whigham will reportedly play Roger Dooley, the "tough but fair-minded Strategic Scientific Reserve Chief." His character will oversee Agent Carter (Atwell), Agent Thompson (Chad Michael Murray), and Agent Sousa (Dollhouse's Enver Gjokaj).
Whigham, who plays Nucky's brother on Boardwalk Empire, will also reprise his role for the show's final season. Marvel's Agent Carter will air during the hiatus of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC.
