Agent Carter's James D'Arcy Talks Jarvis, Young Tony Stark and Musical Episode
Plus why James D'Arcy tried to get #SpiderJarvis trending.
02 FEB 2016 IGN By Terri Schwartz --> Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) is facing her most challenging case yet in Marvel's Agent Carter: Season 2, and she needs all the help she can get from her trusty sidekick Edwin Jarvis (James D'Arcy).
Before audiences learn much more about Season 2 villain Whitney Frost (Wynn Everett) in Tuesday's episode "Smoke & Mirrors," D'Arcy jumped on the phone to tease what's ahead for the Madame Masque storyline. We also talked about whether Jarvis would ever leave Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) for Peggy's employ, if Agent Carter will eventually introduce young Tony Stark and just how good the upcoming musical sequence will be. Continue reading for the full interview.
IGN: In last week's episode, Howard Stark brought up to Jarvis how it working for Peggy must be an appealing draw. How much more of that are we going to explore this season?
D'Arcy: I think I answered the question by saying I'm perfectly happy with the job that I've got, which I think it's fair to say is the truth. Having said that, an addendum to that would be it's pretty clear that he really likes Peggy's life. He finds it quite exciting, he wants to be observant, and he also really cares for Peggy and always has. Almost as soon as they met he's been very, very, very fond of her and looked out for her, and I think he can't bear her suffering. All of those things added together ... I do think he likes his job.
IGN: Even though we know Jarvis remains Tony Stark's butler long enough to inspire Tony to call his AI Jarvis, is there a loophole that Jarvis could secretly end up working for the SSR? Would you want to see that?
D'Arcy: That is probably not a question for me, but would I like to see it? Sure. I tried to get #SpiderJarvis to trend on Twitter. I think that Jarvis should be an actual superhero, but that's just me. I'm not sure it's ever going to happen. [laughs]
IGN: What is it that Peggy brings out in Jarvis that makes him come alive like we see when they're together?
D'Arcy: There's a huge amount of adrenaline, isn't there? We saw in Season 1 he was sort of jolted out of his life. His life was pretty structured and straightforward, and suddenly something profoundly different was happening. I think he really felt part of something, part of a team, and useful -- and also he immediately was very close to Peggy and very good friends with her, and wanted to help. All of those things added together, I suppose that's what it is. I don't think that Jarvis is, in his head, thinking that he's going to be doing her job with her. I think he just thinks there are certain things he's very good at, and he'd love to be a part of that.
IGN: We know that there's a cliffhanger in episode 8 with Peggy and Jarvis getting knocked out that leads into a musical sequence opening episode 9. What can you say about the experience filming that? I can't wait.
D'Arcy: It was absolutely hysterical. It was a total blast. We had a day to shoot it and it worked out rather brilliantly organically. It's not a musical episode or anything like that, but it is a sequence that we adored shooting. I mean, it was just great, great fun, and hopefully the audience will enjoy it as much as we did doing it.
IGN: I don't think I've seen you dance in anything before, but I could imagine Jarvis being an incredible dancer. True or false?
D'Arcy: Well, let me tell you that may not be the only time you see Jarvis dance this season.
IGN: Amazing. We've also seen this season the evolution of Whitney Frost into a master villain. What can you tease of what's ahead for her, Zero Matter and her transition into Madame Masque?
D'Arcy: Uhh, what can I tease? Hmm. It's going to get worse. I don't know if I can say anything else or I'll get in trouble, but I think it is fair to say that it's going to get worse.
IGN: What do you think it is about Whitney Frost as a character that is so fitting for what Season 2 is trying to accomplish?
D'Arcy: That's a good question, because what I thought was really, really clever is they relocate to Los Angeles, it's set in the '40s and it's very glamorous, and they've taken a movie star and suddenly she's an extreme scientist. It's based on Hedy Lamarr -- I'm not saying that Hedy Lamarr turned into a villain or anything like that, but she was an extraordinary scientist as well as being a movie star. I just thought it was very, very clever that they subverted that truth and used it to feed our fiction. It manages to keep you in this glamorous film world, while at the same time it makes it go noir very quickly. Plus also, Wynn Everett is one of the greatest actresses on the planet and she just plays it so brilliantly.
IGN: Speaking of other new additions to the show, when are we going to see Ana Jarvis again?
D'Arcy: She didn't just drop in for a couple of episodes and then we'll never see her again. She has a really important role to play in this second season, so she's coming back -- I just can't remember exactly which episode. She's coming back, and she's got a very big part to play.
IGN: Last question: we talked to Hayley Atwell recently, and she mentioned how much she'd like to explore Peggy's relationship with baby Tony Stark. Do you think it's inevitable that we'll meet young Tony on this show? What type of babysitter do you think Jarvis would be?
D'Arcy: Well, we'd have to get into a time machine, wouldn't we? I can't figure this out. Tony Stark must be born in the '60s, and we're in the late '40s, and we're moving forward by six months a season. We'll have to meet him in Season 24 or something like that.
IGN: I'm on board with that!
