Patton Oswalt to guest on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. He'll be playing Agent Eric Koenig.

Homage to Walter Koenig?

Oh cool. He's always great:-)
Awesome! Oswalt is hilarious and anyone who has seen his filibuster on parks and rec knows how passionate he is about the MCU.
He's great. He was a constable on Justified too and he just rocked it. Well, I'm watching his season now, so "rocks" is sort of the right tense for me.

I do hope that the SHIELD PTBs let Oswalt have a crack or two at scripting dialogue when he's not acting.

Obligatory filibuster link. He improvised this. It's one take.
Thank you @Sunfire. Maybe they can just film him ad libbing his character's first meet and greet with the team.


Oh, this is a fine casting choice.

First Bill Paxton, and now Patton? SHIELD is amping up their guest star power - can't wait to see what he does with it ...
Big tough guy that I am (not really), I'm not usually prone to squeeing. But SQUEEE! Patton is so one of the good guys in the universe.
I must be the only person who doesn't care for him. Guess I need to turn in my Whedonite Badge.
I love the way he thinks! I love that one of his first thoughts about it was to wonder if he was M.O.D.O.K! I too think it would be cool if the Clairvoyant turned out to be M.O.D.O.K. --don't think the chances of that are good, though. But Patton would make a good M.O.D.O.K. face if they blew his face up real big and stretched it out with some computer effects. Very Kirby-esque. Too bad he's not really going to be doing that--but whatever they have him doing will probably be good anyway. Very glad to hear Patton Oswalt is coming to Agents of SHIELD --(and I am still holding out some hope for M.O.D.O.K. somewhere along the line too).
Wonderful news! Not really surprisingly, though: appearing on this show seems like the sort of thing he loves to do.
Not the only one, ShadowQuest. I thought he ruined the episodes of Burn Notice he was on.
Any performer is at the mercy of 1000 things. I like his work-but when he amps his vulnerability-like he was in King of Queens. I think he'd make any of a number of interesting things in SHIELD.
I also love that his first thoughts were all about M.O.D.O.K. He's a hardcore geek and I love him for it.

It's also great that he's instantly boosting the show. I think he's doing a better job of pitching it than I've heard from anyone on the show so far. They should get him on The Daily Show and anything else they can to promote his appearance.
