Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"Marvel's Agents of SHIELD's" resident traitor Brett Dalton has booked himself an independent film during his time off before Season 2. He'll join "Castle's" Stana Katic in "The Tourist," where he'll play Eric Lazard, a "heartbroken former college football star who gets in over his head with a dangerous Florentine sport and an alluring local woman." The movie is written and directed by Evan Oppenheimer.

Brett and Stana are cute, good for them.

Ooh, two people I love in one movie together. Here for that. And hopefully they'll share scenes.

i was caught off guard by his acting chops. the scene in the diner where he starts to unravel/realize Skye is up to something, i mean i hated Ward with a passion but he really sold that momentary confusion/hurt/disbelief.

The switch from SHIELD!Ward to Hydra!Ward was amazing.
xpirate_queenx 18th-May-2014 05:44 pm (UTC)
Ditto. I know he gets a lot of flak, but the guy's not a bad actor at all. The fact that he's such a huge goofball in real life and can pretty flawlessly pull off such a maligned bastard in the show should says something.

So true, he's actually really good on the show.

He did a good job seeming genuinely hurt by her betrayal and almost comically unaware of how much worse his was. Both he and Chloe surprised me.

I'm marathoning AOS and am only halfway through rn but thankfully everyone's been announcing that particular spoiler on every type of social media since the episode aired.

Luckily the show's been getting good and there are a lot of plot twists that still surprised me.

It took a really long time for it to pick up, but once it did I actually started to enjoy it.

Huh, well, may it be far better than the Johnny/Angelina one. Woof, was that painful. This dude's growing on me veeeerrry slowly, I slightly hate to admit it.
caitiecait 18th-May-2014 05:01 pm (UTC)
Yaaas, Stana Katic.

I can't help but like the actor despite his character on AoS. It doesn't hurt that he's stupidly good looking
sarahvma 18th-May-2014 06:45 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I worry that that likeability means they'll redeem him. They've set a lot of groundwork for him at least being sympathetic.
dissident 18th-May-2014 06:55 pm (UTC)
On one hand, the best kind of villain is the kind where you can see just how they ended up that way and still conclude that they were wrong in the end for what they did. I don't think it was a bad thing to make him somewhat sympathetic, as long as they don't fall into the trap of redeeming him later.
sarahvma 18th-May-2014 06:57 pm (UTC)
That's my thing. I'm fine with them complicating him and explaining his actions, but not excusing them.
alienclit 18th-May-2014 05:04 pm (UTC)
The Tourist is already a movie wtf
britty_stitches 18th-May-2014 05:05 pm (UTC)
No idea who he is but..wow. He's sexy.
sarahvma 18th-May-2014 06:47 pm (UTC)
To the point where it's almost too much.
emmuzka 18th-May-2014 05:14 pm (UTC)
For a second I loved in hope that he ditched SHIELD. No-one wants him back. The show would be better without Ward, let's go with Trippet instead.
klutzy_girl 18th-May-2014 05:18 pm (UTC)
I love both Ward and Trip, tbh (as do a lot of people).
xpirate_queenx 18th-May-2014 05:46 pm (UTC)
It's pretty much confirmed Triplett has taken up Ward's place in the team (and possibly, if not temporarily, Fitz' as well).

Ward's probably going to spend a few episodes next season getting the shit kicked out of him for information then escape/be broken out somehow. I highly doubt this is the last we've seen of him.
sarahvma 18th-May-2014 06:47 pm (UTC)
I think he'll just prove himself tbh.

Don't know who he is but yay for Stana.

People on Tumblr have been really gross about his babymama the last couple of weeks.
klutzy_girl 18th-May-2014 06:50 pm (UTC)
I've seen nothing but positive and happy things. Glad I managed to avoid the gross side of Tumblr.

Yeah, I saw a thread with people making a lot of, "She looks... nice?" Comments.

Others that were less subtle. Plus plenty of people speculating he'll leave her now that he's famous.

I didn't see this, because I've learned my lesson and I stay out of his/Ward's tags, but it doesn't surprise me. I've seen quite a few people who ship him with Chloe, regardless of them both being in a relationship and him having a kid with his girlfriend.
sarahvma 18th-May-2014 10:12 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I've noticed quite a bit of that. It's funny because out of context they do look quite flirty but then you see all the cast photos and next to Clark kissing Iain on the mouth they're pretty tame.
alessandra_lee 19th-May-2014 01:22 am (UTC)
The cast is such a weird family and I love it so much.
prophecypro 18th-May-2014 08:42 pm (UTC)
Curious to see how Stana will do outside of Castle for the first time in a while
im_a_lewser 18th-May-2014 11:53 pm (UTC)
Ooooh yay!
