TV-Cap: AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D’s Mockingbird Suit, an ORPHAN BLACK Set Update, & a SIMPSONS Lawsuit

Hidey-ho, junior rangers! Lutie here with your ever-present Nerdist fixture, the TV-Cap! Hot ‘n’ ready, poppin’ fresh out the oven. Wednesday, like most hump days, was a bit of a whirlwind so we don’t blame you if you managed to miss a few news items here or there. Like the reveal of Adrienne Palicki’s Mockingbird suit on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., or the news that Morena Baccarin is heading to Gotham, or the tweet from Orphan Black‘s John Fawcett showing Art’s car in a particularly… mobile moment. To say nothing of that lawsuit that was just bestowed upon The Simpsons. Which is where we come in to make everything perfect and totally fantastical for you: rounding up the news items you may have missed.

So let’s hop to it, shall we?

Bobbi Morse Gets Suited: Nothing suits that girl like a Mockingbird suit, you know what I mean? Adrienne Palicki’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D counterpart Bobbi Morse had quite the coming out party on the latest episode — and now Marvel has revealed her sweet new outfit ahead of its on-screen debut next week. Take a looksie — homegirl looks real ready for them tactical missions of the undercover variety, y’all. [Marvel]

…Speaking Of That Episode: Here’s Joe McCabe’s recap of how it all went down. Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-check it out! [Nerdist]

The Simpsons Get Sued: Frank Sivero took 25 years to sue The Simpsons for the character they created in his Goodfellas character’s likeness. 25 years ago! Isn’t there a statue of limitations on this? He’s asking for $250 million. In related news: OH JEEZ LORD, C’MON, GUY. [Deadline]

Brad Pitt Wants YOU: …to star in his next HBO miniseries. Really! [Project Casting]

Bigfoot’s A-COMIN’: This Killing Bigfoot show just looks like the most ridiculous thing. Enjoy the ridiculous clip, or, rather, song. You’re welcome.

What You See Here Let It Stay Here: We had the most delightful of chats with Manhattan star Ash Zukerman about secrecy and his time on the series. Oh yeah and his total man-crush on Richard Schiff (I mean but who wouldn’t, right?). [Nerdist]

From Homeland to Gotham: What do you think is harder: dealing with the nutters at the Arkham Asylum …or having a terrorist as a husband? Well Morena Baccarin will be the only human alive able to answer that question when she joins the cast of Fox’s Gotham as Dr. Leslie Thompkins. [IGN]

Orphan Black-date: Director/co-creator John Fawcett tweeted this wee update from the set of Orphan Black‘s third season. ART, YOUR CAR’S ON A THING WATCH OUT:


Coogan Will Pretend to Be Happyish: Good-natured nincompoop Steven Coogan has taken over the role left vacant since the tragic death of Philip Seymour Hoffman in Showtime’s dramedy pilot, Happyish. All things considered, we are pretty happy (no ish) about this. [TVLine]

Maybe We’re Crazy: The illustrious and magnetic cupcake known as Dan Casey has some thoughts about the top 5 shows that were apparently too crazy to air on TV (hey, Netflix: take note!), and you can watch as he counts ’em down here: [Nerdist]

OK, so: how does everyone feel about the Mockingbird suit? Let’s hear your opinions in the comments.
