More news on the superhero series on Netflix! Actor Vincent D'Onofrio will play the notorious Daredevil villain, Kingpin. You might recognize this veteran actor from Men in Black or 1987's Full Metal Jacket as Pvt. Leonard 'Gomer Pyle' Lawrence -
Mr. D'Onofrio is the second actor announced to star in the 13-episode "Daredevil" Netflix series. The first actor announced was Charlie Cox ([Boardwalk Empire](series:200674)) is set to play Matt Murdock aka [Daredevil](movie:47230).
I'm happy with the actor they've chosen and I can't wait to see him play the greedy, wealthy Wilson Fisk, Kingpin. I'm very curious on how Kingpin is going to be portrayed in the miniseries ever since Michael Clarke Duncan's awesome performance in 2003's Daredevil movie as Kingpin (RIP).
"Daredevil" starts production this summer in New York City, it's scheduled to be released on Netflix 2015!
Are you happy about the casting choice? Would you want to see Kingpin in [The Amazing Spider-Man 3](movie:671279)? Let me know in the comments section below.
