Where last week saw Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." dropping an impressive season 2 character reveal in the form of Brian Patrick Wade's Absorbing Man, our latest look at the September premiere of ABC's 'Avengers'-adjacent series is much more battle-tested. Holster your chakram and check out 'Xena' star Lucy Lawless as Agent Isabelle Hartley in a new photo from 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2!
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 has kept casting pretty quiet on the march to Comic-Con 2014, particularly compared to the CW's 'Arrow' or 'Flash,' but at long last the Marvel 'Avengers' offshoot series has its first major might. 'Xena' herself, Lucy Lawless will guest star in the upcoming second season of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' but in what marvelous role?
Given that 'Parks and Recreation' season 5 finale "Are You Better Off?" ended on a mild cliffhanger that implied Lucy Lawless' Ron Swanson-ladyfriend Diane would take on a much more prominent role going forward, we're glad to see season 6 will keep Baby Swanson on track. Lawless will return for the 'Parks and Recreation' season 6 premiere, but how involved will she be going forward?
Now that 'Parks and Recreation' season 5 has reached full swing, it's high time for a guest star, don't you think? No, we're not seeing the debut of 'Breaking Bad's' Jonathan Banks just yet, but who better to kick-off a season of surprise appearances than Xena herself, Lucy Lawless! Perhaps the only woman strong enough to truly tame Ron Swanson, Lawless will make her first appearance in Thursday's "How a Bill Becomes A Law," so how would you like a first-look?
Even after 'Parks and Recreation's' spectacular debut last night with season 5 premiere "Ms. Knope Goes To Washington," we still can't wait for some of the upcoming episodes. In addition to a guest turn from 'Breaking Bad' star Jonathan Banks, we'll also be privvy to a multi-episode arc from Xena herself, Lucy Lawless! But apart from a new love interest for Ron Swanson, who will the lovely lady Lucy Lawless play? Are you ready to see her in action?
We're torn by what might be the coolest casting of the day. Should the honor got to 'Torchwood' star John Barrowman for taking a role in The CW's 'Arrow' or Xena herself for Lucy Lawless' just-announced turn in 'Parks and Recreation' season 5?! Chakram to our head, we've got to go with Lucy Lawless. The also-'Spartacus' star has landed a multi-episode arc in Pawnee, Indiana, but who will the actress play? Will Ron Swanson rise to the occasion?
Lucy Lawless lived up to her name after getting cuffed in New Zealand back in February. And reports surfaced today that the 44-year-old 'Spartacus' and 'Xena' star has plead guilty to charges of trespassing, which could net her up to three years in jail. Not quite as bad as being forced into gladiatorial slavery but still...
