The comedian, who has recently appeared on Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Parks and Recreation, will play Agent Eric Koenig, who first appeared in the comic as one of Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) original team of Howling Commandos.
"When they first told me the character's name, I'll admit the first thing I did is I went on Wikipedia and looked up the M.O.D.O.K. character to see if Koenig was maybe his name before he became M.O.D.O.K., but it wasn't," Oswalt said. "They keep on talking about the Clairvoyant in the show and I'm like, 'Is that M.O.D.O.K.? Am I M.O.D.O.K.?"
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC. Are you excited to see Oswalt on the series?
