Diane, I’ve been cast on a show called Agents of S.H.I.E.LD

“Twin Peaks” alum Kyle MacLachlan has signed for a juicy guest-starring stint on ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”.

Reprising the sort of nasty-pasty role he offered up in the likes of “The Flintstones” movie (god bless that miraculous bit of cinema), MacLachlan’s playing the mysterious dad of Skye (Chloe Bennet), whose hand was seen in the season one finale.

Says TV Line :

The season finale closed with Centipede’s Raina approaching a mysterious figure, presenting a photo of Skye and saying, “I found your daughter.”

Who is this chap? Comic-book fans already likely know, but the rest of us will undoubtedly find out as the season progresses.

Also new to “S.H.I.E.L.D”, “NYPD Blue” actor Henry Simmons, who has been cast as agent Alphonso ‘Mac’ Mackenzie, a ‘mechanic’ in his early ’30s.

The series returns in September.
