As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, onetime Dollhouse resident Gjokaj will play Daniel Sousa, an agent that Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter meets while working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve).

CMM meanwhile will play SSR Agent Jack Thompson, per Marvel.com.

Set prior to the Marvel One-Shot short of the same name, the eight-episode Agent Carter will bridge Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s winter hiatus, airing Tuesdays at 9/8c.

Gjokaj’s recent TV credits include Rizzoli & Isles, Extant and Witches of East End.

    great pick up

  2. I was hoping his casting would link to his cameo in The Avengers but since this is Agent Carter and not Agents of SHIELD, it probably won’t… shame.

  3. Which is it then? Does the show take place before the short or after? I keep seeing conflicting reports on that.

  4. Joey Padron says:

    Glad he’s gonna be on the show. He’s good actor.

  5. I love him – I’m so psyched! One of the best actors I’ve ever seen.

  6. Zach Morrison says:

    Nice choice. I like/enjoy his recurring stint on Rizzoli & Isles and hope he’ll return for more episodes.

  7. Ian says:

    Enver and now Chad too?

    Sigh. I’m going to have to watch this now.

  8. rivensky says:

    Still crossing my fingers that Bradley Whitford reprises his role from the short. PLEASE OH PLEASE.

  9. Leo says:

    I wonder which girl CMM is going to hook up with. Probably skye lol

  10. Ari says:

    Enver is such a talent. I don’t understand why he isn’t more famous.

  11. Shan says:

    That white dude and that other white dude. Can we get a bit more diversity here?

  12. Megs says:

    I was already planning on watching, but I am now quite excited for some Enver. I just love him so much!

  13. Michael says:

    Good for Chad! Seems like he’s really into the 1940-50 scene. Didn’t direct that One Tree Hill 40’s episode?

  14. kara says:

    Meh about Murray, but I’ve been waiting for Enver Gjokaj to pop up in something. He was one of the best things about Dollhouse.

  15. Gerald says:

    Great casting I was already planning on watching but nice to see them fill out the cast with these guys.

  16. Znachki says:

    YAY!! More Enver is always a good idea.

  17. Eliza says:

    Love Enver Gjokaj!! ♡

  18. murley says:

    So excited about Enver Gjokaj!! He was such a standout on Dollhouse. He has guested on a few shows I don’t watch so it will be great to have him on something I will be watching. And I hope this leads to a long terms series regular gig somewhere down the line.

  19. Really happy for Enver Gjokaj, his talent really deserves more beefy roles. Hope they give him decent material to show his acting chops on this show.

  20. wordsmith says:

    Will they explain why there’s an exact doppelganger of Agent Sousa working as a police officer during the NYC invasion in Avengers?

  21. Ram510 says:

    Please keep this as just winter filler, don’t get greedy like last year with Once in Wonderland

  22. LaPiquante says:

    I’m just really, REALLY hoping that Enver gets 5x the screen time of CMM. Should we petition?

  23. cas says:

    While I don’t watch Agents of Shield, I love CMM! He has been missed and so happy he got a new role!

  24. He is going to be in the 4th season of Chosen right? He has to be.

  25. acurat says:

    Nice to see Hayley Atwell taking the challenge and trying to do as many stunts as possible. Not many hollywood actors are willing to do that these days. Yvonne Strohovski is another, and it has seemed to have worked out pretty well for her.
