Veronica Mars’ Ken Marino Cast in Marvel’s Agent Carter Season 2


Marvel has revealed their first new casting for Agent Carter Season 2. None other than comedic actor Ken Marino. But who will he be playing? writes:

Marino (‘Childrens Hospital,’ ‘Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,’ ‘Vinyl’) will play Joseph Manfredi, a volatile leader in the Maggia crime syndicate who will help Peggy Carter’s adversaries further their agenda.

‘We’ve loved working with Ken ever since he played a gay ex-demon for us on “Reaper,” and we were so happy he was available for this role,’ said Executive Producers Tara Butters, Chris Dingess, and Michele Fazekas. ‘His range is incredible – he can go from comedy to romance to drama with ease. Writing for him is easy, because he can do pretty much anything. And he used to have a karaoke room in his house, which makes him even more awesome.’

‘At Marvel, even our villains need a certain degree of charm as they make life difficult for our heroes,’ said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television. ‘Ken brings a quality to Joseph Manfredi that only serves to make him even more menacing, adding another layer of depth to our already outstanding supporting cast.’

I always enjoy Marino no matter what he’s in so I think this is a great call. While we’ve yet to get an exact premiere date, Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter will be heading to Los Angeles for Season 2. Are you excited?

  1. I assume he’s going to be someone slimy. He’s so good at slimy. I was actually dismayed that in the V.M. movie they made up a straight up sleazoid, honestly. In the show, he rode the line so well.
