For Season 2 of the Disney+ series Loki, Eugene Cordero will be promoted to series regular, according to reports.
Marvel chose not to respond.
Cordero plays “Casey,” an employee of the Time Variance Authority, in Season 1 of the Tom Hiddleston-hosted program. What made his TVA persona so well-liked was his genuine confusion about what qualifies as a fish and his use of infinity stones as paperweights. In the Season 1 end credits, he takes the place of Casey as “Hunter K-5E.”
The actor and comedian from the Philippines and America recently appeared opposite Jo Koy in the comedy Easter Sunday from Amblin Partners/Rideback. A TruTV sitcom developed by Broken Lizard called Tacoma FD also features him frequently.
Other noteworthy recent appearances include the role of villager “Stokez” in the Disney+ series The Mandalorian, NBC’s The Good Place, and the Focus Features dramedy The High Note, which stars Dakota Johnson and directed by Nisha Ganatra. He also had a leading role in the SXSW film Golden Arm, and the Warner Bros. movie The Mule, which was helmed by Clint Eastwood and starred Bradley Cooper.
Alongside Tom Hiddleston and Samuel Jackson, he also starred in the films Ghostbusters, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and Other Space from Paul Feig’s Legendary Pictures.
