Vincent D’Onofrio has signed on to play Kingpin in the Marvel/Netflix Daredevil series.
D’Onofrio, best known for his roles in Law and Order: Criminal Intent and Men in Black, will play Daredevil’s main foe, who was portrayed by Michael Clarke Duncan in the big-screen version of the comic book series.
Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, commented on the casting;
“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.”
Charlie Cox was recently cast as Matt Murdock/Daredevil.
