Joss Whedon Casts His Last S.H.I.E.L.D. Team Member

Nashville actress Chloe Bennet is the last lead cast member to join Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. series. Her character is named Skye and she's described as "a confident woman who is slightly obsessed with superhero culture and the shadow organizations that exist within it. She's edgy and can out-talk anyone with her unflappable nature."

Bennet joins Ming-Na as Agent Melinda May, Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Gemma Simmons, and Ian 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 throughout the Marvel films. Whedon is tentatively set to direct the pilot that he's co-writing with his brother Jed Whedon and Jed's wife Maurissa Tancharoen. It was also recently revealed that the series will premiere in the fall of next year.

I've never watched Nashville so I have no idea if she's a solid actress or not, but I'm sure Whedon knows what he's doing.
