The Netflix series “Daredevil” has cast its villain, and it’s a familiar face for television viewers — and particularly for “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” fans.
Deadline.com reports that the actor who will play Wilson Fisk — supervillain name The Kingpin — is Vincent D’Onofrio. The Kingpin is a powerful businessman who comes into conflict with the blind attorney Matt Murdock, whose alter ego is the Daredevil. Murdoch/the Daredevil will be played by Charlie Cox.
“‘Daredevil’ is the first of four 13-episode superhero series set in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City, which Marvel is producing for Netflix,” the piece notes.
The other upcoming superhero series will be “Jessica Jones,” “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage.”
