Bill Paxton as John Garrett

Bill Paxton, the name we associate immediately to the character he plays in Aliens. He has been cast in the Marvel TV show: Agents of SHIELD as John Garrett. The character was first introduced in the Frank Miller miniseries of the Elektra: Assassin story arc. While Paxton has been confirmed for four episodes in the current season, no further details were made available for a recurring role in the coming season (if and when there is one). In the current comics, the character did turn into a cyborg – not sure if the TV show will follow suit.

The introduction of the character on the show may have been the result of many fans (& some critics) citing that the show does not enough characters from the comic books. Just wondering if this is Marvel Studios way of giving in, to ensure that they have a second season. The show currently has many weak characters that they could do without, guess that’s where Bill Paxton’s character is stepping in – to add more weight. Another major improvement area for the show is the “espionage”, the agents are considered to be one of the best out there – part of the super secret espionage organization. Currently, this is very seriously lacking – hope the ratings hold up for the next season.
