Adrianne Palicki may be best known for her role on Friday Night Lights, but she’s also known for some almost-roles as superheroines. Now, she’s finally landed one for Season 2 of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
THR is reporting that Palicki will be playing Barbara Morse, aka Mockingbird… a character we have long wanted to see on the show! THR says she will be in episode 5 of Season 2 with the potential to return.
Prior to this, Adrianne played an almost-Supergirl in the Season 3 finale of Smallville. She was also Wonder Woman in a pilot episode made for NBC that did not go to series. If we want to include all of her super-characters, Adrianne also played a siren in the Aquaman pilot.
Season 2 of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. begins in September.
