Marvel Entertainment has announced today that “The Sopranos” and “Sons of Anarchy” star Drea de Matteo has joined the cast of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” If you remember she also did a hilarious role of Joey’s sister in the show JOEY, Show ran for some seasons and didn’t get as popular as anticipated.
She will play Karla Faye Gideon, described as “a Gifted woman with a grudge to bear against S.H.I.E.L.D. who joins forces with Skye’s father, Cal.” Though she shares a name with a character from Daredevil: Redemption, it appears to be a different character.
“We’re thrilled to have Drea join us as yet another great villain to challenge our cast,” said Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “We relished the opportunity to work with her in such a menacing role.”
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios. The series returns on Tuesday, March 3 at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
