Lucy Lawless is Joining Agents of SHIELD!

News has been released that Lucy Lawless will be joining Agents of SHIELD for the second season. The news was had long been rumoured until TV Guide confirmed it via their website yesterday. Lawless joines the long list of genre actors to join the series, following in the footsteps of Samuel L. Jackson and Bill Paxton, among others.

At this moment, no news has been released as to what Lawless’ role will be in the show, but her history as Xena could lead to a more warrior-related role. Nerdist put forth an idea that Lawless could play an Asgardian warrior, but that is complete conjecture at the moment. Beyond that she is widely recognized for her role on Battlestar Galactica, so it’s really anybody’s guess at this point.

Honestly, we would enjoy seeing Lucy Lawless cruising around with Coulson and the others, especially if she is beating up bad guys. We The Nerdy will keep updating as more information is released. With San Diego Comic-Con right around the corner, we are sure to find out sooner rather than later.
