"MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D." ADDS POWERS BOOTHE
The Emmy-winning actor joins the series as a menacing figure with ambiguous alliances!
Powers Boothe ("Sin City," "Deadwood," "Nashville") has joined "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." in a recurring role as Gideon Malick, a notorious man whose loyalties remain a mystery. Boothe previously appeared in "Marvel's The Avengers" as a member of the World Security Council.

In the aftermath of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s battle with Jiaying and the Inhumans, Director Coulson will search the world for more powered people and will face threats unlike the world has ever seen. However, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will soon find out they're not the only ones tracking down these new Inhumans.
