After a three month break Agents of SHIELD is back! And that includes The Doctor, Calvin Zabo portrayed by actor extraordinaire Kyle MacLachlan. The alien Obelisk has given Cal’s daughter Skye (Chloe Bennet) powers she can’t yet control. But don’t worry, Cal and former SHIELD agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) will come up with something, right? Season 2 of Agents of SHIELD premieres March 3, 9pm on ABC.
It’s been a busy year for MacLachlan. He has the recurring role of Mayor on Portlandia and he’s reprising his cult classic role as Special Agent Dale Cooper for the reboot of Twin Peaks with mastermind David Lynch. And to top it all off, he turned 56 last week. No doubt he celebrated the big day with a bottle of Pursued by Bear. Yup, the Washington native has started his own local wine, Pursued by Bear, in Walla Walla. The name is a nod to Shakespeare’s exit direction in The Winter’s Tale. MacLachlan said of the name: “It’s a funny and unexpected phrase that’s not only a nod to my theatrical roots, but also plays to my sense of humor. It just seemed to fit what I was trying to do.”
