Marvel and Netflix have announced that acclaimed actor Scott Glenn has joined the cast of Marvel’s thirteen-episode “Daredevil” series scheduled to premiere on Netflix in 2015.
Glenn (“The Bourne Ultimatum,” “The Silence of the Lambs”) will play Stick, the mysterious martial artist and mentor of Matt Murdock (a.k.a. Daredevil).
Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television says: “Stick is one of the most important figures in Matt Murdock’s life and Scott Glenn embodies all the qualities of someone so integral to this hero’s journey.
