The world of Marvel is about to get a dose of big love.

Bill Paxton will join the cast of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for an arc of at least four episodes beginning in late February. Paxton will play Agent John Garrett, who will work alongside agents Ward (Brett Dalton) and May (Ming-Na Wen). “He is the type who wants to stay out in the field no matter how high-level he gets,” executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen told TV Guide, which first reported the news.

“We wanted to bring in a rough-and-tumble former cohort of Agent Coulson [Clark Gregg] with a little bit of attitude and cigar-smoking swagger,” added executive producer Jed Whedon. Some of Garrett’s backstory is mentioned in the comic Elektra: Assassin, but all that Whedon will say is “when Garrett got his promotion to Level 7, he refused to sit behind a desk and doesn’t like the formalities of S.H.I.E.L.D. He’s going to help Coulson solve some mysteries and is not afraid to rig an explosive or two.”

Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) assembles a team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to handle strange new cases.
