A better question is why wouldn't an actor want to be part of the MCU. You'll practically live forever via the role.
Anthony Hopkins is a kind of funny example in that he's one of those Theater Trained Actors who really wants to be a Hollywood star

He has been a Hollywood star since Silence of the Lambs though, maybe earlier?

Oh yeah. I was killing you.

That was a really great episode. On the cameo, as someone else mentioned, JLD is also in Black Widow. Taskmaster. US Agent. I have a feeling she’s like the semi-evil Nick Fury assembling the Dark Avengers/Thunderbolts.

Right after the big Zemo mask John wick sequence when they all split up she gets on the phone and calls them.

Yeah, this is my thought as well. I love that idea because the character is tied to Fury, but hasn't done much of her own thing in the past. So making her Fury's counterpart in assembling her own team of Avengers is such a good idea. She even hands Walker a card with a dark side on it.

Some teeth long for ripping, gleaming wet from black dog gums. So you keep your eyes closed at the end. You don't want to see such a mouth up close. before the bite, before its oblivion in the goring of your soft parts, the speckled lips will curl back in a whinny of excitement. You just know it.

Yeah, at this point it's sorta like the Harry Potter movies, where by the end basically any British actor of any note had taken a role because if they didn't have children or grandchildren who'd never forgive them for turning it down, they still wanted to be in because Harry fuckin' Potter.

A few thoughts on this episode:

First and foremost, I love so much that they don't call any attention to this: An unauthorized raid on an enemy POW camp, disobeying direct orders, to free imprisoned compatriots is exactly what made Steve Rogers transition from glorified USO show-pony to Actually Captain America. Having Isaiah Bradley do the same thing and get jailed for it is exactly the right touch for a show wanting to talk about what this show wants to talk about.

And on that note, it is god damned hilarious that the Walt Disney Corporation was like "hey kids, we're making superhero TV shows on the internet now!" and everyone was like "that sounds fun, what're they about" and it turns out the answer so far is Grief and Systemic Racism.

I don't know why Sam and Bucky were talking about Steve like he was dead even in private. Like, you guys would have told us if he's actually dead, right? There's still no reason why you can't, like, phone him up and ask him about his thoughts? I'll chalk it up to odd writing, I guess.

We nearly got the full credits this week, finally, with just one spot blank after Daniel Bruhl's "and starring", so there's one big cameo left for Episode 6.

And finally, if Sharon is the Power Broker -- and at this point that seems like an inescapable conclusion -- why the gently caress did she send Batroc to the Flag Smashers? Isn't she pissed off at them, and kinda relying on Sam to get her that pardon? What's she playing at?

I love the idea because JLD as the anti-Fury is just about the greatest thing I’ve ever heard and I never knew I needed it until now.

I figure they can't call Steve because the show is taking the alt-universe interpretation.

Iirc contessa ended up being a skrull in secret warriors, which seems like it would fit quite nicely for the upcoming secret invasion show

It doesn't seem all that far fetched to me that Steve came back to give the shield to sam and then asked to be sent back to his new timeline with Peggy

Uh. I don't think this happens. The only thing that happens is that she gets into a car with another woman and tells her "We've got a big problem." We don't know who this woman is, the impression is that she's some sort of employee, but there's no relation between her and the Power Broker that we know of. And then Sharon doesn't appear for the rest of the episode.

It's not like they've been consistent on this or that any explanation they've given (or indeed could give) makes sense, but last I heard the official line was that Steve was always Peggy's husband in this timeline and that's why she stayed so insanely evasive about his identity, he just laid low and let it all happen again. Which, y'know, doesn't explain why she was apparently down to date some dudes in Agent Carter, but oh well.

I've seen shit you people wouldn't believe. Cop cars on fire off the shoulder of I-94. I watched search lights glitter in the dark near the Ambassador Bridge. All those moments will be lost in time, like piss in the drain. Time to retch.

I mean I remember them implying that she was going to date a guy but they never got there, plus we don't know when Steve returned, maybe it was after season 2.

I just finished rewatching s2 yesterday and her story literally ends with her making out with a guy she had a big crush on and took all season to get with so even though it got cancelled I'm pretty sure that's where that was going lol

Was there some interview someone gave post endgame where they said peggy was always married to steve

The writers and directors have said contradictory things about whether Steve ended up in the main timeline or not.

Who said this? Like that makes no sense based on what we've seen. Did Peggy spend 60 years hiding that she was married to Steve Rogers from the entire world? Like I know she is a spy but did he hide in the basement when people came over, when Peggy had to appear with her husband at an event she took some body double? Like just logistically it doesn't work. Also Steve would not have sat around and let all the horrible things happen in the next decades. They never came out and said who her husband was because they didn't know what they were going to do with that plotline. If Agent Carter had gone on another season we probably would have seen Sousa and Peggy getting together.

Its easier to accept that Steve going back to Peggy in the post war era created a new timeline because that's how we see time travel works in the MCU. We now know that Bucky and Steve talked about this and they probably said "i'll come back right after I leave once I've lived the life I wanted and give my shield to Sam so he can be the next Cap". so they would have known what was going to happen.

Agents of SHIELD spoilers: Sousa, Peggy’s love interest from the show, is brought to the future and becomes Daisy’s love interest, so clearly Sousa and Peggy didn’t end up together long term.
