Exactly! Silly how some people still believe in such nonsense, she wasn't the reason those shows were cancelled anyway. If Joss wants her for the show, cool, she can play badass agent perfectly!

Assuming that casting call was actually the supporting characters, it'd be interesting to see Summer as River... er Skye (Rainbow?). Would love for Acker to show up later.

Joss Whedon has recruited ER alumna Ming-Na Wen for one of the leads in his ABC drama pilot Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D., which he is co-writing and directing. Ming-Na will play Agent Melinda May.

Like the casting. Interesting that they aren't going young, at least for the moment.

Is Melinda May a character in the comics or a Whedon original?

Ming Na was Senator Wen in Eureka. She is 48 so seems more like a top official than one of the mere field agents.

No, she's all new. It sounds like it'll be a team of Coulsons so to speak, in terms of being awesome and brand new. Sounds good.

She's described as a field agent, and not as a top official... I have no doubt that Ming Na can do such things.

A team of Coulsons? As if one weren't enough.

What, you're saying you don't like Coulson?

Coulson is fine, but not a whole team of him. It makes him less unique. Everytime one dies, there's just another one of him waiting to take his place.

You realize that Dr. Cosmic wasn't actually talking about multiple Coulson's, yes?

NO! Not Min-Na!

She's played a complete ***** in EVERYTHING I've seen her in

That's the sort of thing that the writers decide, not the actors.

Or the casting director knows what the character is like and thinks "Huh, who do I know that can play a complete *****? AHA, Ming-Na!"

Are you sure you're not confusing 'not nice all the time' with 'complete ******?'

Camille Wray was a hard nosed journalist, but she did the right thing in every situation, afair. Chun Li, Mulan and Dr. Aki Ross are obviously far out of complete ****** territory.

Probably decreases the chances of James Woo being a character though. Usually an American TV show doesn't have two Asian-American characters in the principal cast, unless they happen to be a couple or blood relatives.

Hawaii Five-0 has three, and many other supporting characters who are Asian.

Yeah, because it takes place in Hawaii (hence the word "usually"). And two are blood relatives.

It's going to be all invented characters, except for one named "Maggie Sawyer" just to mess with you.

Yeah, except the Marvel Universe version is a gay guy (like, Richard Simmons-level gay) who grew up in an orphanage and his real first name is "Robin." And he's a Skrull too. And secretly Captain America's son. And maybe the next Sorceror Supreme of Earth.
