‘Agent Carter’ season 2 adds Kurtwood Smith of ‘RoboCop’ and ‘That 70s Show’ fame

Marvel Entertainment announced that Kurtwood Smith (RoboCop, That ’70s Show) has been cast in Marvel’s Agent Carter for season two.

Smith will play a character named Vernon Masters, “a veteran of the War Department with a keen understanding of how to work the system.”

“We had the pleasure of working with Kurtwood on both Resurrection and Chaos, and were well aware of what a commanding presence he is,” said Executive Producers Tara Butters, Chris Dingess and Michele Fazekas in a statement to Marvel.com. “So when we were developing the character of Vernon Masters, we wrote it with him in mind. We just never thought we could actually get him. Thankfully, we were wrong.”

Kurtwood Smith portrayed the thug Clarence Boddicker in the science fiction classic film, 1987’s RoboCop. He played patriarch Red Forman on the long running sitcom That ’70s Show as well as memorable roles in Dead Poets Society, the Star Trek franchise and several voice roles.

Agent Carter season 2 centers on Peggy moving from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home–and perhaps even a new love–she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.

Agent Carter stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter, James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, Chad Michael Murray as Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as Chief Daniel Sousa, Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, Bridget Regan as Dottie Underwood, Wynn Everett as Whitney Frost, Reggie Austin as Dr. Jason Wilkes, Currie Graham as Calvin Chadwick, Lotte Verbeek as Ana Jarvis and Lesley Boone as Rose.

Marvel’s Agent Carter Season 2 will debut in 2016 on ABC.
