'Daredevil' scoop: Vincent D'Onofrio cast as major villain
Vincent D’Onofrio is the new Kingpin.
Marvel TV has cast the acclaimed actor in Daredevil, its 13-episode super-hero series for Netflix.
D’Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Men in Black) will play Wilson Fisk, “a powerful businessman whose interests in the future of Hell’s Kitchen will bring him into conflict with the blind attorney Matt Murdock and his alter ego Daredevil.” Previously we announced that Boardwalk Empire alum Charlie Cox will play the Murdock/Daredevil in the show.
With the launch of Daredevil next year, Marvel will have at least three television shows on the air, including ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and the upcoming Captain America spin-off Agent Carter, which ABC plans to launch in midseason.
