at . Comments

Patton Oswalt is heading to ABC.

The comedian/actor (The Goldbergs, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Justified) will guest star on an upcoming episode of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.

Look for the star to portray Agent Eric Koenig, a character who was part of Nick Fury’s team of World War II soldiers in the comics on which the drama is based.

Oswalt, Patton

“I got a call from my agent saying they want you on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and I said ‘Hell, yes,’” Oswalt said. “I’m lucky that I’m visible enough that they wanted to bring me in to play this character.

"I’d worked with [executive producer Joss Whedon] before on Dollhouse, and I guess I wasn’t too annoying and they decided to put me on another one of his shows. So I was very lucky.”

No air date has been set for Oswalt's guest appearance.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Quotes

Coulson: Since when did you become a high ranking member of team Gonzales?
May: Someone had to run the base while you were gone. Having a seat allowed me to keep you safe.
Coulson: I was fine on my own.
May: Seems that's how you operate best.
Coulson: What the hell is that supposed to mean.
May: That you've been lying to me. Every since S.H.I.E.L.D. fell, all those overseas trips you were taking. They were never about recruiting new agents were they? You want to tell me what Theta Protocol is?
Coulson: No.
May: Because you don't trust me.
Coulson: Because you're not the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
May: Neither are you.

Discovery requires experimentation and this experiment will take time.
