Every hero needs a good supporting cast. Daredevil is no different. Daredevil’s comic book cast of characters includes his law partner and best friend Franklin “Foggy” Nelson. Foggy was played by Jon Favreau in the 2003 Ben Affleck movie Daredevil. Now Foggy has been cast in the new Netflix Daredevil series.
Elden Henson (Intelligence), who will appear in the next two Hunger Games: Mockingjay films, has signed on to play Matt’s lawyer pal. Henson joins Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) who will be portraying the eponymous blind hero, and Vincent D’Onofrio (Law and Order: Criminal Intent) who will take on the role of Daredevil’s nemesis Wilson Fisk, AKA “the Kingpin” (Played in the Affleck film by the late Michael Clarke Duncan.)
Due to debut on Netflix in 2015, Daredevil will be the first of four Marvel Comics series (Along with Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and the Defenders) that will play exclusively on Netflix.
