J. August Richards Cast In Avenger’s Television Spin-Off

JAugust-Richards J. August Richards, popularly known as Charles Gunn on “Angel”, is officially slated to play an unnamed role on the new Avenger’s spin-off called “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”.

According to micechat.com, when work broke back of this additon back in April, all parties were remaining extremely mum about what role Richards would play. One theory making the rounds was that he was playing either a younger version of Nick Fury or Fury’s son (yes there is a Nick Fury Jr. in comics).

A more plausible theory in the fan boy arena is that Richards may take on the role of Luke Cage, a role which seems to sync more with the teaser trailer that has been circulating since mid May. In the trailer you can clearly see Richards display a great amount of super hero like strength and durability which may be more in line with a character like Cage.  A last possibility is that he is simply playing a custom character created for the show.

At any rate, we’re looking forward to checking out this spin off and hope it lives up to the standards set by it’s strong history in the comics and high end theatrical connections.
