Not the recent RoboCop remake just to clarify, but the full-blooded, insane original. Though TV watchers will know Kurtwood Smith best for his turn in That ’70s Show, to sci-fi fans he’ll always be sadistic thug Clarence Bodicker in Paul Verhoeven’s classic – and now he’s coming to Marvel’s Agent Carter.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Smith will play Vernon Masters, “a veteran of the War Department with a keen understanding of how to work the system.” Masters seems to be a character created just for the show, and it’s not clear if he’ll be a friend or foe to Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter.
Smith joins returning cast members James D’Arcy, Enver Gjokaj, and Chad Michael Murray, along with supporting players Dominic Cooper and Bridget Regan. It’s not known whether Lyndsy Fonseca will be back or not, but we’ll let you know when we hear more.
The second season of Marvel’s Agent Carter airs midseason on ABC.
