As is customary with The Avengers TV offshoot, details about his character are shrouded in secrecy. However, the show has been casting the role of a brilliant and quirky scientist that matches Conrad’s description (i.e., male in his 40s).

ABC declined to comment.

Conrad’s post-Ghost roles include stints on CSI: Miami, The Firm and The Good Wife.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuts Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 8/7c.

  • Hank Pym? I know there is an Ant-Man movie coming up but introducing him on SHIELD would be an interesting way to develop his character before jumping to the big screen. He’s got loads of story that can be told on a tv series that can only be touched upon in a film.

    • I thought the same thing and it would be a really cool twist for Marvel’s plans. Plus I do remember him being a scientist on “Guiding Light” years ago too.

    • Probably not Pym. That doesn’t mean he couldn’t be Scott Lang, though, but I doubt they’re going to go that way.

  • Oh my God. For nearly the whole year I’ve been watching Grimm, I thought he was Renard! The guy that actually plays him and David look and sound exactly alike.

    Anyway, really excited for David on SHIELD! I miss Ghost Whisperer.

    • David Conrad is too fine an actor not to be seen regularly. He’s a true natural and I have missed his work so much since “Ghost Whisperer” ended. I can’t believe such a talented actor is not all over TV and films!

  • He looks a lot like Danny Rand :)
