Ken Marino, who you might recognize from shows and films such as Veronica MarsWet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, and Childrens Hospital, has been cast as a villain in this upcoming season of Agent Carter. His character’s name is Joseph Manfredi, and he’s described by the Marvel news post as “a volatile leader in the Maggia crime syndicate.”

Marino is joined by fellow newcomers Wynn Everett and Lotte Verbeek, who play Whitney Frost (aka Madame Masque) and Ana Jarvis, respectively. This season will also see the addition of Reggie Austin, who will play a “potential love interest” for Peggy. His casting is also notable because he’ll be the first person of color to have a recurring role in the series.

How do you feel about Marino’s casting? And how stoked are you for this upcoming season of Agent Carter?
