New 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' Photos Reveal A 'Firefly' Veteran

J. August Richards isn't the only Joss Whedon alum appearing on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." this fall.

Reports from the Comic-Con pilot screening revealed that — and I suppose this is the time to say SPOILER alert — one of Whedon's "Firefly" actors has a role to play in the small-screen take on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, you can see that actor in action for yourself, thanks to several new photos released from the "S.H.I.E.L.D." pilot.

There you have it: Ron Glass, the artist formerly known as Shepherd Derrial Book, back under Whedon's guidance as a doctor of S.H.I.E.L.D., if not quite an agent. Here's hoping he sticks around the series for a good long while, and isn't the last Whedon veteran we see appear on the show.

There are tons of other "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." photos available online — over 40, in fact — thanks to the kind folks at S.H.I.E.L.D. Site.
