“The Fosters” actor Jay Ali has scored a key role in the third season of Marvel and Netflix’s original series “Daredevil”.
Ali will play Rahul ‘Ray’ Nadeem, an honest but ambitious FBI agent willing to go to any length for his family. Executive producer Jeph Loeb says of Ali’s casting:
“We are thrilled to welcome Jay into our stellar cast. His storyline and riveting performance will captivate our fans in the third season of Marvel’s Daredevil.”
Erik Oleson, showrunner and executive producer, adds about the new hire:
“I love Jay Ali. It isn’t easy to join a cast as talented as Marvel’s Daredevil – and Jay blew us all out of the water with his audition. His moving performance in Season 3 will show the world that he’s a star in the making.”
He joins returning cast members Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk, AKA The Kingpin). “Daredevil” S3 is expected to be released towards year’s end.
