Psychiatrist nurse that brings her love of cinema and medical opinion to Moviehole.

Former “E.R” star Ming-Na will return to the superhero realm (she had a role in the 1994 film “Street-Fighter” with Jean-Claude Van Damme) for “S.H.I.E.L.D”, Joss Whedon’s small-screen spin-off of “The Avengers”.

Na, also remembered for her role in “The Joy Luck Club”, joins Clark Gregg, who is reprising his role as agent Phil Coulson on the ABC pilot.

Ming-Na will play Agent Melinda May. 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. The character was originally listed on the pilot’s casting breakdown as Agent Althea Rice, aka The Cavalry.

Whedon is co-writing the pilot script with his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.
