A quick delve into the annals of Marvel Comics reveals Woo, whose first appearance dates back to Yellow Claw #1 in 1956, is an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who formed the so-called "Department Zero and the G-Men" before ultimately joining S.H.I.E.L.D.

Park stars opposite Constance Wu in ABC series Fresh Off the Boat, and also stars on HBO series Veep. He could be seen in this summer's The House and Snatched. Hannah John-Kamen was the only other new cast member previously announced, with a few other female leads still left to be cast.
