I’m definitely all for Adrianne Palicki playing Mockingbird on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Right now it certainly looks like the second season of AOS is going to be a big step up from the first season. For more read the article below that originates from TheHollywoodReporter.com.

Clear eyes, full hearts … Marvel character
ABC’s Agents of SHIELD is bringing in another character from the comics.
Friday Night Lights favorite and comic book fan Adrianne Palicki has been tapped to guest-star as Marvel super spy Bobbi Morse, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Best known to comics fans as Mockingbird, Palicki will appear in the fifth episode of the Marvel procedural with the potential to return; the episode will find her popping in perhaps not as an ally to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team.
The arrival of Mockingbird was first teased in July at Comic-Con, when Patton Oswalt — who plays Billy Koenig and Sam Koenig — confirmed that Life Model Decoys exist in the SHIELD universe and suggested that Morse’s character could appear in season two (watch the video, below).
Palicki joins a rapidly growing roster of guest stars heading to Agents of SHIELD‘s second run. She joins Kyle MacLachlan as Skye’s (Chloe Bennet) father; Lucy Lawless asS HIELD veteran Isabelle Hartly; Reed Diamond as Hydra villain Daniel Whitehall (aka Kraken); Nick Blood as a mercenary Coulson reaches out to for help; Henry Simmonsas agent Alphonso “Mac” Mackenzie; and Simon Kassianides as Bakshi.
For Palicki, the casting comes after she reteamed with FNL creator Jason Katims on NBC’s About a Boy, playing a love interest for David Walton‘s Will. Her credits includeG.I. Joe: Retaliation, Legion and Robot Chicken. She’s repped by WME and Anonymous Content. Agents of SHIELD marks the actress’ latest foray into the comic book world. She famously played Wonder Woman for DC in NBC’s David E. Kelley pilot and as Nadia in The WB pilot Aquaman. She next stars opposite Keanu Reeves in Summit’s John Wick, due in October, and indie film Baby, Baby, Baby, and will reprise her role in G.I. Joe 3.
Agents of SHIELD returns Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
