Ming-Na to Join Cast of ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ TV Series

television-news-and-talkJust recently we learned of Clark Gregg reprising his role as Agent Coulson on the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series. This was the first confirmed casting to be announced. Now, thanks to Deadline, we now know that Ming-Na will be joining the show too. Many will recognize her from her role on ‘ER,’ and most recently on ‘Eureka‘ and ‘Stargate Universe‘ (which are all now ended). Ming-Na will be playing the role of Agent Melinda May. She is “Soulful and slightly damaged by her combat experiences, Melinda is an ace pilot, a weapons expert and a soldier who can — and has — gone beyond the call of duty.” If you recall the rumored/leaked casting info from a few weeks ago, the character Agent Melinda May was listed as “Agent Althea Rice, aka The Calvary.” So it looks like things are moving along for the S.H.I.E.L.D. series, hopefully we’ll find out more casting information soon.
