  • Stumptown cast

Cobie Smulders is admittedly a glutton for punishment.

Between portraying S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill in six Marvel Cinematic Universe films, a US military major in "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back", and an army veteran/private investigator in the new series "Stumptown", the Vancouver star has endured many action scenes - and bumps and bruises - throughout her career.

"Maria Hill gets a little action".

Smulders has also starred in "Friends from College", "Safe Haven", "They Came Together" and "Jack Reacher 2". It was just insane - also a great experience - but I remember being in there like, 'I can't do this again. She's far from a flawless person; with a gambling problem introduced in, I don't know, maybe the show's first four minutes, we know she's just like us.

"Stumptown" Season 1 premieres Wednesday at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC. Director James Griffiths, whose resume is otherwise packed with comedies, will even occasionally break up the flow of the action with handheld shots to keep things as disorienting as they feel for Dex as she careens from one disaster to the next. When Dex goes black-as she does, in overall, with flashbacks to her time in Afghanistan and her desperate favor to uncover any individual, someone, to be discontinuance to so she's no longer alone-it's heartbreaking in the fingers of Smulders who seamlessly navigates between Dex's tough and assured exterior with the cracks in the bottom that hint at trauma and insecurity.

Stumptown cast

"It's why I accepted (the role), knowing that it would be like that every other episode, and when it happens it will be the most realistic version of that fight sequence". While you wait for the recap make sure to check out all our Stumptown recaps, spoilers, news & more, right here! We also know she can kick ass from all those Avengers movies and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Dex, out of the militia and playing in advise to make use of her winnings to pay for utility funds (and beer), is recruited by Sue Lynn Cardinal (Tantoo Cardinal), the pinnacle of the on line casino and the mom of Dex's deceased ex, to support uncover Sue Lynn's granddaughter.

"A Canadian treasure. She's really incredible. She has such an awesome energy and spirit", Smulders said of Cardinal, a prolific actress who was born in Fort McMurray, Alta., and is Cree, Dene, Nakota, and Metis. When she made comment, she was wearing a white pleated dress, having just wrapped an appearance on Live with Kelly & Ryan. Created for television by Jason Richman and based on Greg Rucka's comic book limited series of the same name (Rucka also writes for the show), Stumptown is a modern-day hardboiled detective drama that follows Dex Parios (Smulders), a former Marine investigator with a gambling problem, a drinking problem, and a monster-sized case of undiagnosed PTSD when she stumbles her way into a gig as Portland's new favorite private investigator.

"We're now seeing the full spectrum". I remember watching "Sex and the City" to try to learn about women.

"But that was all we had at that time, because it was the only show with a whole female cast since, you know, 'The Facts of Life,"' added Ealy.

The Dex/Grey storyline within this episode is going to be a big part of the balancing act of this show - trying to maintain character histories and deeper arcs with some of the stuff that you're getting a chance to see week to week.
