Adrianne Palicki Mockingbird Comic - H 2014

Bird Of Prey

According to The Holltwood Reporter, Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) will be joining ABC’s Agents of SHIELD as Bobbi Morse. A character that comic book fans know to be the alter ego of Mockingbird. Palicki is slated to appear in the fifth episode of next season, and there is a possibility that she could return for more episodes after making her debut.

The possibility of Mockingbird joining the cast was first teased in July at Comic-Con when Patton Oswalt, who plays Billy Koenig and Sam Koenig,  confirmed that Life Model Decoys exist in the SHIELD universe and suggested that Morse could appear in season two.

Palicki joins a growing roster of guest stars for Agents of SHIELD‘s secondseason.  Kyle MacLachlan is set to appear as Skye’s (Chloe Bennet) father; Lucy Lawless will appear as SHIELD veteran Isabelle Hartly; Reed Diamond will be Hydra villain Daniel Whitehall (aka Kraken); Nick Blood will be a mercenary that Coulson reaches out to for help; Henry Simmons will be agent Alphonso “Mac” Mackenzie; and Simon Kassianides will appear as Bakshi.

The actress has some experience with comic book productions.She was tapped to play Wonder Woman in a series that was being created by David E. Kelley  for NBC. However, that series was dumped before the pilot was completed. And she played Nadia in the Aquaman pilot for TheWB that never went to series. She also played Lady J in the G.I. Joe: Retaliation movie, and she will reprise the role for  G.I. Joe 3.

Agents of SHIELD returns Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on ABC.

Walking Dead Spin-Off TV Series

The Walking Dead

The Zombie Apocalypse Spreads

AMC is looking to expand the television world of The Walking Dead. The cable channel is developing a The Walking Dead spin-off that will be a “companion series” to it’s hit zombie apocalypse show. Robert Kirkman, the series creator as well as writer/creator of The Walking Dead comic book series that the TV show is based on, will serve as an exec producer on the spin-off along with Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert.

“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” said AMC president Charlie Collier in a statement. “We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.”

Kirkman is excited about the prospects for the spin-off. “After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe. The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.”

The spin-off is being looked at for a 2015 premiere. While you’re waiting for that, you can get your fix of zombie action when Season 4 of The Walking Dead premieres on Oct. 13 on AMC.
