A One Tree Hill
alum and a Dollhouse
favorite are heading to Marvel’s Agent Carter
-- as series regulars!
First up is Enver Gjokaj. Known for his time on Dollhouse
, in addition to his recent stints on Extant
and Witches of East End
, Gjokaj is joining the new ABC drama as Daniel Sousa, an agent who comes face to face with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) while working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve). The Hollywood Reporter
was first to report Gjokaj's casting.
As for Chad Michael Murray (who will forever be Lucas Scott from One Tree Hill

. No further details were given about his character.
, set prior to the Marvel One-Shot short of the same name, is a series stemming from showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas. It takes place a year after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger
(Steve Rogers aka Captain America, Peggy’s boyfriend, is now frozen in ice) while following Agent Carter’s career as a secret agent navigating her life as a single woman -- not only is she balancing administrative work, but she's also going on secret missions for Howard Stark.
The eight-episode series will air Tuesdays at 9/8c, filling in for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
