Per our sister site Deadline, Kassianides — whose TV credits include the recurring role of Nikita terrorist Ramon Esquivel — will play Bakshi, a right-hand man who’s not afraid to do the dirty work.

The recurring character is also described as “confident but a little bit officious.”

Earlier this month, S.H.I.E.L.D. cast TV’s erstwhile Xena, Lucy Lawless, as “tough” veteran S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Isabel Hartly, while Nick Blood will recur as mercenary Lance Hunter.

Kassianides’ other TV credits includes episodes of Covert Affairs, Burn Notice and Law & Order: UK, while on the big screen he appeared in the James Bond film Quantum of Solace.

The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. launch their sophomore mission on Tuesday, Sept. 23, now airing at 9/8c.
