We’re about to dig into the mysterious past of one of our agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

And this time, it’s not Skye’s (Chloe Bennet).

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that actor Blair Underwood has come aboard Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a recurring role as badass agent Melinda May’s (Ming-Na Wen) estranged ex-hubby Dr. Andrew Garner.

The former L.A. Law star will make his Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s story arc debut in a March episode when the show comes back from its winter hiatus in 2015 -– after Marvel’s Agent Carter starring Hayley Atwell has aired -- and Underwood’s episode begins to film this week. This will mark Underwood's return to genre TV; he starred in the unsuccessful The Event a couple of years back.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. also stars Clark Gregg, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge.

Are you guys looking forward to meeting Melinda May’s estranged ex-husband and learning more about her mysterious past?
