Six more actors have been announced for the upcoming Daredevil Netflix series, which debuts next month on the popular streaming service.
Joining the cast are Rob Morgan as Turk Barrett, a smalltime criminal in Hell’s Kitchen, Matt Gerald as Melvin Potter, a machinist caught between a rock and a hard place. He’s better know to comic book readers as Gladiator.
Also showing up will be 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 who are 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,” Executive Producer/Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb said earlier today. “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,” adds Executive Producer, Showrunner, and director 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.”
Daredevil arrives on Netflix this April.
