Ken Marino Heads Over to Agent Carter

Marvel’s Agent Carter has found itself an unexpected villain for season two. Ken Marino (Veronica Mars, Party Down, Wet Hot American Summer) will play a mob boss named Joseph Manfredi, according to Variety. His character is a leader in the Maggia crime syndicate who will be helping Agent Carter’s enemies.

Marino will be reunited with showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, who also created Reaper, which Marino also starred in. The producers at Agent Carter said in a statement that they are excited to be working with Marino again, because of his great range in abilities. Even though he mostly stars in comedies, he can switch to drama and romance easily.
