MacLachlan will play Skye's dad in the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.



Source: EW

When Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to TV screens this fall, the show will have a new cast member. Kyle MacLachlan, best known as Special Agent Dale Cooper from the 1990s David Lynch classic Twin Peaks, has reportedly been cast as Agent Skye's father in the show.

"What the fuck?!" MacLachlan reportedly asked when browsing press coverage for the news. "Twin Peaks was like twenty-five years ago. I've been in other stuff, you know! Lots of stuff!"

Shut up, Kyle MacLachlan. You'll always be the dude from Twin Peaks. On a related note, we feel pretty old.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns on September 23rd, though we expect there to be an inexplicable two month gap between the first and second episodes.

Yeah it's is, and it should be interesting to see what sort of character he's going to be.

I'm still hoping that he's not a literal "monster" and it winds up being someone cool, like Baron Zemo.

Then again, I'm ALSO hoping he's in Captain America 3.

I kind of mixed about this. One of the things I feel AoS needs to avoid having the show's main cast be overshadowed by guest hero/villains and recurring characters.

AoS needs to be centered around the the SHIELD agents, and to making sure the show becomes a strong franchise for the next few years.

The first season was at it's strongest after Bill Paxon came aboard though.

To be fair though that's the only reason for Arrow's popularity. Take away the guest hero/'villains and that show is just another Smallville.

It became more focused after Cap movie came out, certainly. But that was almost out of necessity following the events in the film.

Smallville was still successful despite that though. (Even though it did have DC characters show up through the run.)

AoS needs to use the what parts of the Marvel Universe it has available to exploit strategically. The Marvel characters used need to fit the needs of the series, and not the other way around.

Once again you spout incorrect ideas. It needs great villains and guest stars otherwise it becomes just another villain of the week shows. It needs a season big bad that guests in every other episode at least.
