Marvel's 'Agent Carter' to star 'Boardwalk Empire' alum

Posted on

SHEA WHIGHAM

A key actor from Boardwalk Empire is going from the 1920s to the 1940s.

Actor Shea Whigham has been cast as the male lead in Marvel’s Agent Carter, EW confirmed. Whigham will play the “tough but fair-minded Strategic Scientific Reserve Chief Roger Dooley, the man who will oversee agents Carter (Hayley Atwell), Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) and Sousa (Enver Gjokaj),” Deadline first reported. In other words, Dooley is sort of the Agent Coulson of the SSR in this 1946-set series.

Whigham plays Nucky’s brother on Boardwalk, which is currently airing its final season. ABC’s Captain America spin-off series is expected to air in the Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. slot between the show’s fall and spring runs (so you could say it’s ABC’s Tuesday night winter soldier).
