Marvel has announced their casting for the KINGPIN in the upcoming Daredevil Netfilx series:
Marvel.com revealed the following:
D’Onofrio 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.
“We’re incredibly proud to have an actor with the gravitas and versatility of Vincent joining 'Marvel’s Daredevil' in such an integral role,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “Wilson Fisk is an iconic villain whose cunning and power make him the dangerous equal of our hero."
Vincent D'Onofrio! I couldn't think of a better fit! Haven't seen him bald (until now), but he's perfectly methodical and snide actor with a Mafioso persona. He can be intimidating and charming; a grade A actor!
D'Onofrio will play villain to Charlie Cox's Daredevil in the thirteen episode series which will premiere in 2015
