Diane, this is really something….
Specifically, TVLine has learned that the journeyman actor will recur during Season 2 as a character best described as… Skye’s father.
The question of Skye’s parentage — including who her mom and dad are, how she ended up at an orphanage and why she is classified as an 0-8-4 — loomed large during the ABC series’ freshman run. The season finale closed with Centipede’s Raina approaching a mysterious figure, presenting a photo of Skye and saying, “I found your daughter.”
