THR is reporting that “Nashville” star Chloe Bennet has been cast in Joss Whedon’s upcoming television show Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. Her character is “Skye” and she’s described as “a confident woman who is slightly obsessed with superhero culture and the shadow organizations that exist within it. She’s edgy and can out-talk anyone with her unflappable nature.” Sounds like a character in a Joss Whedon show if we’ve ever heard of one.

Bennet joins Clark Gregg, who returns as Agent Coulson, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Gemma Simmons, and Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May. Currently S.H.I.E.L.D. head honcho Samuel L. Jackson hasn’t been announced for the show, but he has shown interest.

The series will begin filming in January and is expected to air in the fall of 2013. Joss Whedon will direct the pilot and co-write it with his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.
