Sean Kleier to Play a Key Role in Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp is putting together quite a cast with Sean Kleier joining the film.


That Hashtag Show reports that Sean Kleier has been cast in Ant-Man and the Wasp in what they describe in a pivotal, currently-unnamed role. The only information they have provided on the Kleier’s role is that he will be a special agent, who acts as the “mole” of the story. The site goes on to speculate that there could be plenty of "corporate espionage" happening in the film, since The Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) has been confirmed as the main villain, while venturing an educated guess as to who this character may be. Here's what That Hashtag Show's Jessica had to say about who this character may be.

"With The Ghost as the film's main villain, we think there will be some corporate espionage going down. Given the little we know, it's possible that Kleier could be CIA special agent Geoffrey Ballard. Ballard was a CIA agent who took a treacherous turn and became a villain known as Centurion. Though it's also possible they could be going completely off the rails. With Walton Goggins coming aboard as Sonny Burch, and his relationship with Iron Man, maybe Kleier could be the character Force."

Klier has become a semi-prominent TV comedy actor in recent years, best known for starring in Odd Mom Out but also having recurring roles in Happyish and Mr. Right. This would seem to suggest in his first major blockbuster role (he’s had minor parts in just a few movies), he would be in a comedic part, although given how the Ant-Man side of the MCU tends to be lighter in tone than some other areas in general and that vague description, there may be something more.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is directed by Peyton Reed with a screenplay by the writing teams of Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, and Paul Rudd, and stars Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Tip "T.I." Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen, Randall Park, and Walton Goggins. In Ant-Man and the Wasp, Lang teams up with van Dyne to embark on a new mission from Pym.

The movie is scheduled to be released on July 6, 2018, in the United States.
