Marvel has announced that Elden Henson has been cast in the Netflix Daredevil series as Foggy Nelson, Matt Murdock’s best friend and legal partner.
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.
“Elden plays one of the most important characters in the world of Marvel’s Daredevil, and we’re thrilled to see Foggy Nelson brought to life by such an incredibly talented actor,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television at Marvel.com. “He perfectly captures the heart and soul of this series, bringing an added resonance to Matt Murdock’s fight against the injustice in their great city.”
Elden Henson, known for The Hunger Games and Mighty Ducks, joins Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk and Rosario Dawson in a to-be-announced role.
“Marvel’s Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
