Agents of SHIELD: Anthony Michael Hall joins cast for season 6


Anthony Michael Hall joins Agents of SHIELD in a guest role for season 6.

Many details are still unknown about what Agents of SHIELD’s sixth season will look like, but details are starting to become clearer as summer 2019 creeps ever closer. In the latest season 6 news, the cast will grow to include Anthony Michael Hall in a currently-unknown guest role.

This news was first reported by Revenge of the Fans.

Hall is best known for his nerdy 1980s film roles as the straight-arrow Brian Johnson in The Breakfast Club and Gary Wallace in Weird Science. He was briefly part of the cast of Saturday Night Live with Robert Downey Jr, played the antagonist Jim in Edward Scissorhands, and starred in the leading role of Johnny Smith in the TV adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dead Zone.

Revenge of the Fans also reports that Briana Venskus will be reprising her role of SHIELD agent Piper, and Joel Stoffer will reprise his role of Enoch.

Enoch was a Chromicon, basically a robot from another planet tasked to prevent calamities. As he died returning the team back to the present in “Past Life” (5.10), it seems likely that his role in season 6 will be in flashbacks.
