Brian Patrick Wade lands role as Absorbing Man in 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

By Kyle Johnson,

Brian Patrick Wade will appear in the upcoming second season of ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Carl "Crusher" Creel, aka the Absorbing Man.

Crusher will show up to threaten and harass Coulson and his agents when the series returns on Sept. 23, Marvel reports. His first appearance will be in the premiere episode, but it isn't known yet if he is only showing up for that episode.

Wade is just the latest to join the upcoming sophomore season, which keeps adding new faces. Earlier in the week, Marvel announced Adrianne Palicki had been cast to play fan favorite Agent Bobbi Morse, also known as Mockingbird.

Much like Crusher, Morse is only currently slated to appear in the fifth episode, but the door is open for a larger role.

Others guest starring on S.H.I.E.L.D. include Lucy lawless as Isabelle Hartly, Kyle KacLachlan as Skye's father, Reed Diamond as Kraken, Simon Kassianides as Bakshi and Nick Blood. How I Met Your Mother alum Colbie Smulders also will return to the series as Agent Maria Hill.
