'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.': How long will Mockingbird be sticking around?

Warning: This story contains major spoilers from this week’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. scored a new team member during Tuesday’s episode—but she almost came at a steep price.

Determined to get the obelisk back from Skye’s father (Kyle MacLachlan), Raina (Ruth Negga) attempted to blackmail Coulson (Clark Gregg). Unless he handed over Skye (Chloe Bennet), she’d send an email ousting Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) as a S.H.I.E.L.D. mole within Hydra. Coulson called her bluff because he had a backup plan: The very Hydra security agent tasked with finding the mole was actually another S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki), otherwise known as Mockingbird. Unlike the comics, in which Mockingbird was the wife of Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), this version is the ex-wife of newcomer Lance Hunter (Nick Blood). What’s in store for the newest member of S.H.I.E.L.D.? EW tracked down Palicki to find out.


Adrianne Palicki's 'From Dusk Till Dawn' debut: Watch a sneak peek -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO


Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki is back on the small screen this week in Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series on the El Rey Network. She plays Vanessa Styles, a woman from Seth Gecko’s (D.J. Cotrona) past.

EW has an exclusive clip of  Palicki in the March 25 episode, titled “Mistress,” directed by Eduardo Sanchez (Blair Witch Project), in which she insinuates to Seth that his brother Richie (Zane Holtz), known for his violent, unpredictable behavior, may be suffering form mental illness, to which Seth sharply responds with a finger in her face, “He’s not crazy.”

The 10-episode, hour-long series is the network’s first scripted original and is based on the cult-classic film of the same name from Rodriguez.

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on El Rey Network.


Robert Rodriguez's El Rey network casts Adrianne Palicki, two more in 'From Dusk Till Dawn' -- EXCLUSIVE

Grindhouse guy Robert Rodriguez is diversifying — and he’s got a would-be Wonder Woman on board as well.

Rodriguez is currently launching a new 24-hour cable channel called El Rey Network, which plans to “unite the most culturally diverse generation in history through fearless, badass and original content that awakens the renegade in everyone” — according to a press release, at least. Its content will include cult classic films, next-gen sports, and original series like From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, a 10-episode supernatural crime saga inspired by Rodriguez’s 1996 feature.

The drama’s cast already includes Wilmer Valderrama as criminal mastermind Carlos, D.J. Cotrona of Dear John as bank robber Seth Gecko (a role played by George Clooney in the film), Zane Holtz of The Perks of Being a Wallflower as his volatile brother Richie (played by Quentin Tarantino in the film), and Jesse Garcia of Sons of Anarchy as Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez.

Now EW has learned of three more additions to the cast: Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki, Jake Busey (yes, son of Gary), and Lane Garrison, late of the multi-network miniseries Bonnie & Clyde. Palicki plays Vanessa Styles, a woman from Seth Gecko’s past. Busey plays eccentric, mythology-obsessed professor Aiden Tanner. And Garrison is Pete, a liquor store clerk who gets more than he bargained for when the Gecko brothers enter his shop.

From Dusk Till Dawn will be the fledgling network’s first scripted original. Though a premiere date for the series has not yet been announced, El Rey is available nationally beginning this week.
