Agent Carter Adds James D'Arcy as Howard Stark's Butler, aka Jarvis

According to Variety, actor James D'Arcy (Let's Be Cops, Hitchcock) has joined ABC's Agent Carter.

While Variety doesn't come out and say it, it's clear that D'Arcy will be playing Edwin Jarvis. Earlier reports had Jarvis (the human version) serving as Howard Stark's butler and also as an ally to Peggy Carter and her role in the SSR.

D'Arcy will likely serve as a more bad ass version of Jarvis. It's very likely that we'll see a young Tony Stark at some point during the Agent Carter series and that Jarvis will have quite an impact on him since he decides to name his virtual assistant after his father's butler.

Truth be told, I'm much more excited for Agent Carter than I am Season 2 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It's a painful wait until January, but I think we'll be seeing flashbacks in more than just the first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
