With the Sochi Winter Olympics about to start up, ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be taking the rest of the month off. The network has released a new TV spot from their next episode, which is currently untitled, but features our first look at Bill Paxton as John Garrett. We reported last month that the actor will be featured in a four-episode arc as this S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who will work closely with Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) and Agent Ward (Brett Dalton). The character also has close ties to Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg). In the Marvel comic books, John Garrett was eventually turned into a cyborg after being injured in the line of duty, although it hasn't been confirmed if the series will use this story line. Take a look at the latest footage from Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which returns Tuesday, March 4 at 8 PM ET on ABC.
Bill Paxton is in negotiations to board Doug Liman's sci-fi action film All You Need Is Kill. Tom Cruise stars in the Warner Bros. project alongside Emily Blunt and Charlotte Riley.
The film is an adaptation of a graphic novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka that centers a soldier (Tom Cruise), who is fighting an alien war. He is forced to relive his death in a continual time loop becoming a better soldier with each pass. Bill Paxton will portray the soldier's demanding platoon leader.Read More
