Marvel and Netflix’s upcoming streaming series Daredevil has added Elden Henson as a new cast member who will work closely with Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock.
Henson, who is set to appear as Pollux in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and Part 2, has landed the role of Foggy Nelson. In the Daredevil comics and in the series, Nelson is not only Murdock’s best friend, but also an attorney and confidant.
The official description for Nelson reads, “In a town full of crime and corruption, Foggy’s friendship to the community and passion for improving it have made him a friend to its many residents from all walks of life.”
In addition to Cox and Nelson, Daredevil will star Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk and Rosario Dawson playing an unnamed character.
Production on 13 episodes of Daredevil is currently ramping up with an expected summer 2015 premiere exclusively on Netflix.
