J. August Richards - SHIELD

Via press release from ABC...

In what the network is calling "a shocking cliffhanger episode" titled The Bridge, Mike Peterson, the character played by J. August Richards in the very first episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and whom we haven't seen since then, will return to provide "super-soldier" support for Agent Coulson as he takes the war back to Centipede. As they get closer to the truth, startling secrets are revealed and an unexpected twist threatens the team.

Despite the fact that I gave up on the series a few weeks ago, I just might tune in for this one, if only to see what Joss Whedon does with Mike Peterson this time around, when the episode airs on Tuesday, December 10.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons.

Previously, Ruth Negga and Pascale Armand both guest-starred in episodes of the series.

The Bridge was written by Shalisha Francis and directed by Holly Dale.
