Marvel and Netflix have announced that six supporting actors have been cast to Marvel's Daredevil.
From the comics, Rob Morgan will play Turk Barrett, a smalltime criminal in Hell’s Kitchen, while Matt Gerald will play Melvin Potter, a machinist caught between a rock and a hard place. Siding with Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) are Peter Shinkoda as Nobu, a Japanese businessman with an agenda all his own; Wai Ching Ho as Madame Gao, a powerful woman running her own trade; and Nikolai Nikolaeff and Gideon Emery as Vladimir and Anatoly, two Russian brothers looking to forge new names for themselves in America.
“With an already tremendous cast, these six actors help to fully flesh out Matt Murdock’s world and give life to Hell’s Kitchen,”
said Executive Producer/Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb. “We’ve been blessed to work with such amazing actors on this series to create a truly remarkable first season.”
“It’s an honor to be working with such a talented and diverse group of artists who vividly bring these characters to life,”
said Executive Producer and Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight. “The challenge in bringing 'villains' to the screen is always in portraying them as three-dimensional characters. Our actors exceeded all expectations in this regard, crafting deeply flawed, wonderfully human antagonists.”
Marvel's Daredevil stars Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsley), Scott Glenn (Stick), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Marianna), Vondie Curtis-Hall (Ben Urich) and Toby Leonard Moore (Wesley).
'Marvel's Daredevil' follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City. The series premieres on Netflix on April 10th and consists of 13 episodes.
