[RUMOR] The Walking Dead’s Travis Love to Play The Taskmaster in Pilot Episode of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series?

television-news-and-talkOkay, so this may or may not be totally accurate, so take it as a rumor, but according to Travis Love‘s IMDB page, Love will be playing Tony Masters (aka Taskmaster) in the pilot episode of the Agents of SHIELD TV series. Some might recognize Travis Love as one of The Governor’s henchmen, Bowman, on The Walking Dead. Those not familiar with Taskmaster, he has the ability to mimic the physical movements of anyone he witnesses, which has allowed him to go up against some of the toughest heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe. He has even been hired as a training instructor by various criminal organizations, as well as S.H.I.E.L.D. itself. Recently it has turned out that Taskmaster has been revealed to be a sleeper agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., that was planted by Nick Fury. It will be interesting how this is handled if it turns out to be true, but remember this is just a rumor for now. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres on Tuesdays at 8pm EST this fall on ABC.

UPDATE: As expected, hearing various sources state this is false information. Like I said, it was from IMDb, which isn’t exactly reliable for this kind of info.
