A former Hawaii Five-0 villain is (allegedly) turning over a new leaf with a move to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Mark Dacascos will recur in the ABC drama as Giyera, who heads up security for S.H.I.E.L.D., our sister site Deadline reports.

In addition to 5-0, Dacascos’ TV credits include roles on Chicago P.D. and General Hospital. (And let’s not forget his iconic turn as Iron Chef: America‘s Chairman.)
