D’Onofrio To Play Kingpin In “Daredevil”

Vincent D’Onofrio has officially been cast as Wilson Fisk, better known as Kingpin, in Marvel’s upcoming thirteen-episode, straight-to-Netflix TV series based on the “Daredevil” comics.

The “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” and “Full Metal Jacket” actor stars as Fisk, a powerful businessman whose interests in the future of Hell’s Kitchen will bring him into conflict with the blind attorney Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) and his alter ego Daredevil.

Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loed says: “We’re incredibly proud to have an actor with the gravitas and versatility of Vincent joining ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ in such an integral role. Wilson Fisk is an iconic villain whose cunning and power make him the dangerous equal of our hero.”

The series is scheduled to premiere on Netflix sometime in 2015.
