Frank Whaley (“Pulp Fiction,” “Vacancy”) has scored a key recurring role as Detective Rafael Scarfe in Marvel and Netflix’s “Luke Cage” series.
In the comics, Scarfe is an NYPD officer and Misty Knight’s ex-partner who served as a regular fixture in stories involving both Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Scarfe joined a group of corrupt cops in the “Daredevil” storyline ‘Shadowland’.
Mike Colter stars in the series as a wrongly accused man who, granted super strength by a sabotaged experiment, escapes prison to become a superhero for hire.
Mike Colter, Rosario Dawson, Alfre Woodward, Theo Rossi and Mahershala Ali also star in “Luke Cage” which is currently shooting ahead of an early 2016 premiere. It’s expected Whaley will likely take on the role in Netflix’s “Iron Fist” series as well.
