David Wenham Joins Netflix’s “Iron Fist”

Australian actor David Wenham (“300,” “The Lord of the Rings”) has joined the growing cast of Netflix and Marvel’s original series “Iron Fist”.

Wenham will take on the role of Harold Meachum, a ruthless corporate leader who was partners with Danny Rand’s parents at the time of their deaths. Over the course of the series, he’ll play a role in Danny’s past and future.

Executive producer and showrunner Scott Buck says: “I’m very excited to have David as our Harold Meachum. David is capable of displaying raw, visceral strength as well as extremely keen intelligence. This will add up to a character of complex depth who will keep us off balance all season.”

Wenham joins the previously announced Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick who will play Danny Rand and Colleen Wing respectively.

Production begins shortly ahead of an early 2017 premiere.
