Marvel shared a pleasant surprise with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans on Twitter Tuesday afternoon — Anthony Michael Hall (The Dead Zone) and Sherri Saum (The Fosters) will be guest star on Season 6 of the hit TV series.

Hall will guest as Mr. Kitson, “the fiendish ruler of an alien empire.” Fans will be familiar with this character’s name, as Agent Leo Fitz and Enoch visited Kitson City on the planet of Kitson on last week’s episode, where they made the mistake of trying to cheat in a casino. Which is of course never a good idea, even if Joe Pesci isn’t around to crack some skulls.
As you can see in the photo below, Mr. Kitson looks like a criminal mob boss type — he’s wearing a fancy ornate robe, several necklaces, an expensive looking pin, and he’s got that look that says “cross me and you’ll be swimming with the fishes.”
Hall is perhaps best known for his teenage roles in National Lampoon’s Vacation, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Weird Science. He’s also recognized for his lead role in television series The Dead Zone, which he also produced.
Sherri Saum will guest as Atarah, an aggressive Chronicom who wants something from our team.
Saum is best known for her role as Lena Adams Foster in the drama series The Fosters, but has also appears in a number of television roles, such as Beggars and Choosers, Rescue Me, and In Treatment.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on ABC Fridays at 7:00 pm.
