Premiere Screening Of FX's
No stranger to badass roles on series including "The Sopranos" and "Sons of Anarchy," Emmy-winning actress Drea de Matteo continues the trend with a new villainous turn on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Marvel made the announcement on its website Thursday, writing, "Matteo will play Karla Faye Gideon, a Gifted woman with a grudge to bear against S.H.I.E.L.D. who joins forces with Skye's father, Cal."

No word yet on just when she'll appear on the series, or how long she'll stick around.

"We're thrilled to have Drea join us as yet another great villain to challenge our cast," said Jeph Loeb, "S.H.I.E.L.D." executive producer and Head of Marvel Television, in a statement. "We relished the opportunity to work with her in such a menacing role."

"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." returns from hiatus on March 3 on ABC.
