Battlestar Galactica‘ fans everywhere are about to perk up at the second half of the current season of Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ as Edward James Olmos (‘Blade Runner’,’2 Guns’) has just joined the cast! Yes, I did say that he is joining the cast as he will be showing up in a major recurring role for the series. Olmos will be joining Blair Underwood in the upcoming season.

On the show Olmos will be playing Robert Gonzales. “Robert who?” you may be asking. Well, I’m right along with you there as my vast knowledge of Marvel characters was drawing a blank and when I went searching online, I came back with a whole lot of nothing.

That being said, he is someone that “will have massive repercussions for Director Coulson and his team.”

In fact Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb says:

“Edward James Olmos brings an amazing gravitas to any role he inhabits, something we knew we needed for Robert Gonzales. When Olmos first appears on our series, everyone will have to take notice–including our favorite Agents.”

Someone this big could be from any number of areas: a government agency, a politician, a hero, a villain, someone working for a rival organization, an Inhuman. There really is a lot of ways that this character could be important and we won’t know until the series returns to ABC this March and Olmos finally makes his appearance.

Honestly it doesn’t matter what role he will play as long as Olmos will be showing up for as many episodes as possible! I can’t wait to see how he’ll interact with the agents so far.

Are you looking forward to the return of Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’? What kind of a character do you think Olmos will end up being when he shows up on the small screen? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
