Edward James Olmos, who’s known to many geeks as Commander Adama in Battlestar Galactica, will be guest starring in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Marvel made the announcement today that he’ll be playing Robert Gonzales, a character who will have “massive repercussions” for Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team. Everything else about him is being kept secret.

“Edward James Olmos brings an amazing gravitas to any role he inhabits, something we knew we needed for Robert Gonzales,” executive producer Jeph Loeb says. “When Olmos first appears on our series, everyone will have to take notice–including our favorite Agents.”

Lucy Laweless (Xena: Warrior Princess) was another actor from Battlestar Galactica who appeared in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, March 3rd, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
