Lorenzo James Henrie, best known as Chris in AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead, has joined another comic book property! We’re only a couple of weeks away from the Season 4 premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and they’ve announced Henrie has joined the show.
Now, who’s he playing? Well the synopsis for Episode 1 (titled The Ghost) revealed that Henrie will play a character called Gabe. In the comics, the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider has a little brother called Gabriel, and Henrie pretty much looks the part. There was a casting call sheet in June that reads:
“Also to be introduced in Season 4: a pair of Latino brothers, one of whom is always the most dangerous person in the room, the other paralyzed in a wheelchair.”
Sounds about right, doesn’t it? Robbie Reyes will be officially introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this episode, so it makes sense to introduce his little brother – who acts as his motivation behind many of his actions.
Are you looking forward to the return of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.I? Well you don’t have to wait long, it returns for a fourth season on September 20th.
