ABC’s brand new superhero spin-off “Marvel’s Agent Carter” just nabbed another veteran television actress.
“White Collar” star Bridget Regan has joined the cast of the upcoming eight-episode miniseries, Marvel announced Thursday.
The 32-year-old actress will play Dottie, a recurring character described as “a small-town girl from Iowa who’ll have a huge impact on the life of Agent Carter.”
Regan is best known for a 10-episode run on USA’s Matt Bomer led crime-drama, “White Collar.” But she has had significant roles on two CW shows, “Beauty and the Beast” and freshman telenovela adaptation “Jane the Virgin.” The actress also co-starred alongside Keanu Reeves in his surprisingly successful revenge flick “John Wick,” playing a busty, tattooed bartender.
UTA, TMT Entertainment Group annd Sunshine Sachs represent Regan.
Set in 1946, “Agent Carter” stars Hayley Atwell (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Peggy Carter and Dominic Cooper (“Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World”) as Howard Stark. Both will reprise roles they established in “Captain America: The First Avenger.”
Co-stars include “Dollhouse” star Enver Gjokaj, “One Tree Hill” actor Chad Michael Murray and “Jupiter Ascending’s” James D’Arcy.
“Agent Carter’s” creators are Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, both of whom are also executive producers. ABC Studios and Marvel Television will produce.
As TheWrap reported on Wednesday, ABC’s “Marvel’s Agent Carter” premieres Tuesday, Jan. 6 at 9 p.m. ET, after the network’s sophomore series “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” begins its winter hiatus.
