Netflix's 'Daredevil' adds Peter Shinkoda, 'Dexter' and 'SVU' alums
Hawaii Five-0’s Peter Shinkoda is ditching the waves and heading to Hell’s Kitchen in the Netflix series Daredevil. Marvel announced Wednesday that he will play Nobu, a Japanese businessman who sides with Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio)—but has an agenda of his own.
Joining him are Wai Ching Ho (Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Blue Bloods) as Madame Gao, an accomplished woman with her own trade; and Nikolai Nikolaeff (Camp, Sea Patrol) and Gideon Emery (Grimm, How to Train Your Dragon 2) as Vladimir and Anatoly, Russian brothers trying to make a name for themselves in America.
Additionally, Rob Morgan (Person of Interest) will play Turk Barrett, a smalltime criminal, and Matt Gerald (Avatar, Dexter) will portray Melvin Potter, a machinist resting on hard times.
Based on the comics, the series follows Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) as a lawyer by day and superhero by night. Blinded as a child, he gains heightened senses that aid his fight against injustice.
“It is gonna be so intense. It’s much more gritty, it’s much more down-to-earth, and it’s a mix of what is good and what is evil, who defines that, and why is it defined. I think that nobody really knows what’s in store,” Vincent D’Onofrio told EW Wednesday.
The show premieres April 10 with 13 episodes.
