Joss Whedon Casts Deadly New Agent in S.H.I.E.L.D.

Brett Dalton has joined the cast of Joss Whedon's Avengers inspired TV series S.H.I.E.L.D. Dalton hasn't really done much other than doing little roles in shows such as Army Wives and Blue Bloods, neither of which I've ever watched. 

He will play Agent Grant, described as "one of  S.H.I.E.L.D.’s highly-skilled rising stars. He’s deadly, precise, and cool under fire — but not so great with the people skills."

Dalton joins previously cast Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, Ming-Na as Agent Melinda, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Gemma Simmons and Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz.

The story will revolve around the activities of the top-secret S.H.I.E.L.D. espionage organization featured in The Avengers. Whedon is tentatively set to direct the pilot for the series that he will write along side his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.
