Joey Defore has been cast as a young Baron von Strucker to appear in March 30's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode.
Thomas Kretschmann previously played an older Von Strucker in Captain America: Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron. The character was mentioned in previous seasons of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but never appeared; a son however, Werner von Strucker (Spencer Treat Clark), did appear in several episodes.
Defore has previously had one-off roles on Hawaii Five-0, Scorpion, Blindspot, and Blue Bloods.
Defore will debut as von Strucker in March 30's "Rise and Shine" episode, which will explore General Hale (Catherine Dent)'s past and her ties to HYDRA. A younger version of Hale as well as a younger Jasper Sitwell (played by Alyssa Jirrels and Adam Faison, respectively) will also appear in the episode.
