    I actually was on the verge of stopping to watch “Scandal”, but I guess I’ll have to stick for it a little longer… ;-) Just no more Huck/Quinn, please, it’s disgusting!

    Pretty lame for SHIELD, tgat character sucks. First Blizzard and now this, who’s next Hypno Hustler?

    • wordsmith says:

      It makes sense that, if they’re going to introduce characters from Marvel canon, they’d pick ones who would almost certainly never be used in one of the films. It also gives them more room to reimagine the character to suit their needs without setting off the fans.

    out of all people the give the situation a show…id rather see vinny

  4. Tran 2.0 says:

    I remember Sebastian Roche when he played a mercenary trying to hunt down Jack Bauer in Season Seven of 24.

  5. Mo Walker says:

    @Bill – The Hypno Hustler could be the villain of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s inevitable musical episode.

  6. Alia says:

    Shield should kill off Skye because her is killing the show slowly.

  7. Dreamrose says:

    Now, if only they got Sebastian Roche on “Agents of SHIELD”…!

  8. herman1959 says:

    If Sebastian Roche is going to be on Scandal for “a few episodes” and there are only 3 episodes left in this season, is it possible his character will rollover into next season? Also, it seems we will have less David on Scandal due to Joshua Malina’s new guest star gig. It sounds like we are in for some changes on Scandal, and a huge season finale -YES!

    I hope this new guy becomes Olivia’s love interest

    Roche needs to go back to Supernatural.
