Former Ghost Whisperer leading man David Conrad has landed a classified recurring role on ABC’s much buzzed about Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., TV Line revealed.

Details on who exactly Conrad will be playing are being kept under wraps, but TV Line notes that the series has been looking for a fortysomething man to fill the role of a “brilliant and quirky” scientist. Do you think Conrad will be playing someone new, or does ABC keeping mum on the character details suggest he’ll be starring as an existing member of the Marvelverse?

In addition to Ghost Whisperer, Conrad has also appeared on The Firm, CSI Miami and Roswell.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a small screen follow-up to Joss Whedon’s The Avengers blockbuster. The series is set to premiere Tuesday, September 24th at 8/7c on ABC.
