On Thursday, March 20 Comingsoon.net posted the news that actor and comedian Patton Oswalt has signed on to guest star on an upcoming episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," which has just seven episode left in its first season. Oswalt is the latest guest star on the series which has already introduced Jamie Alexander, Bill Paxton, J. August Richards and Samuel L. Jackson.
Oswalt will play Agent Eric Koenig, a comic book character created by Stan Lee and Dick Ayers, who also has ties to Nick Fury. However, the series may be changing the origin of the character to better fit the story line. There is no more information about which episode the actor will appear in, or when that episode will air.
Oswalt is no stranger to television roles, and it known for playing Neil on the television series "United States of Tara," the tech geek Calvin Schmidt on USA Network's "Burn Notice,"and Garth Blundin on the comedy "Parks and Recreation." Blundin gave a comical speech about how the character Thanos can transfer from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to "Star Wars," which certainly relates to the series.
Oswalt is an avid watcher of the new series and is just as in the dark as everyone else about who is character really is and what role Agent Koenig will have on the series. The actor previously worked with show co-creator Joss Whedon on the science fiction drama "Dollhouse." He revealed that Agent Garrett is one of his favorite Marvel characters.
