The team working on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have an unwritten rule: All super-powers introduced on the show must be explained by science — not magic or supernatural forces.* So it should come as no surprise that the show is adding another scientist to its ensemble cast.

Actor Ian Hart is joining the highly anticipated ABC series in a recurring role. As usual, the S.H.I.E.L.D. team is being very tight-lipped about the character and how he will impact the drama.

The English actor has had roles on A&E’s Bates Motel, HBO’s Luck, FX’s Dirt and the film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. ABC had no comment. The series premieres Tuesday, Sept. 24.
