Pensacon is pleased to welcome from TNT's The Last Ship, The Walking Dead, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe including Thor, The Avengers, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in addition to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Jasper Sitwell himself, actor Maximiliano Hernández!

Maximiliano Hernández is an American actor, director, and screenwriter. He is best known for portraying Agent Jasper Sitwell in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and FBI Agent Chris Amador in the first season of The Americans.

A native of Brooklyn, New York, Hernández began acting in high school. He briefly studied acting at the Leonard Davis Center for Performing Arts and worked as a stage actor before moving to Los Angeles, California.

Early in his career, Hernández appeared in episodes of Law & Order, 24, and Numbers, as well as the film Hotel for Dogs. He had parts in the films Pride and Glory and Warrior, both from director Gavin O'Connor.

Hernández made brief appearances as the Marvel Comics character Jasper Sitwell in 2011's Thor and 2012's The Avengers as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. He reprised the role in the Marvel One-Shots short films "The Consultant" and "Item 47", the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and the 2014 film Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

In 2013, he appeared in the premiere season of The Americans as Chris Amador, an FBI agent. The project reunited him with Gavin O'Connor, who directed the pilot. Hernández exited the series in the ninth episode. Andy Greenwald of Grantland described Hernández's work in the series as "wonderful [...] making a fringe character both memorable and strangely noble in his limited screen time."

In 2014, Hernández appeared in TNT’s The Last Ship as Chief Hospital Corpsman "Doc" Rios and had a two episode arc in The Walking Dead as police officer Bob Lamson.
