Vincent D'Onofrio Will Be KINGPIN On Marvel's DAREDEVIL Netflix Series

Vincent D’Onofrio has been cast as The Kingpin (Wilson Fisk) in Marvel's upcoming Netflix television series, Daredevil. The veteran actor is best known for his roles in Full Metal Jacket, Men In Black and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that acclaimed actor Vincent D’Onofrio has joined “Marvel’s Daredevil,” an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015. Best known for his critically-lauded work in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “Men in Black, “Full Metal Jacket” and “Homicide,”  D’Onofrio will play Wilson Fisk, a powerful businessman whose interests in the future of Hell’s Kitchen will bring him into conflict with the blind attorney Matt Murdock and his alter ego Daredevil.

D’Onofrio joins Charlie Cox, previously announced as Matt Murdock, in the exciting cast of “Marvel’s Daredevil.”

“We’re incredibly proud to have an actor with the gravitas and versatility of Vincent joining 'Marvel’s Daredevil' in such an integral role,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “Wilson Fisk is an iconic villain whose cunning and power make him the dangerous equal of our hero."

“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.

Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus”, “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”) and Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods," "Lost," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," in addition to writing the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Daredevil”), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”).

“Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

They should have gotten Bryan Michael Bendis to play Kingpin.

Solid cast.
McNyagano - 6/10/2014, 12:16 PM
I've never heard of him.
HAILHYDRA - 6/10/2014, 12:16 PM

Good actor. Hopefully they FX his size up a bit.
AC1 - 6/10/2014, 12:18 PM
Isn't he the guy everyone used to fan cast as Kingpin anyway? If so, pretty cool to see him actually get the role, only other time I can remember a fan cast fave getting the role was Henry Cavill as Superman.
SageMode - 6/10/2014, 12:18 PM
Private Pile is the Kingpin. Wow.

He was Thor once.
HAILHYDRA - 6/10/2014, 12:19 PM
Won't be hard to follow up Michael C. Duncan (God rest his soul). His lines were terrible and made him seem like a big guy who can't act. He totally can. Watch Green Mile.

great casting private pile for the win

VISIONaryNPa - 6/10/2014, 12:21 PM
@Batfleck he kinda does look like Mark, he'll most likely fat up a bit more for the role, im hoping, gain another... 30-40 founds? yehh.
ezio619 - 6/10/2014, 12:22 PM
also i have been seeing more clips of Charlie Cox and i think he can be a good Matt Murdock/Daredevil

BoneSawIsReady - 6/10/2014, 12:23 PM
Excellent bad guy

Killuminatic - 6/10/2014, 12:24 PM
Holy shit, he was already chosen for a fan cast aswell.
SageMode - 6/10/2014, 12:24 PM
Well D'Onofrio is a pretty big dude at 6' 4" - 6' 5". He could pack on the pounds for it.
cipher - 6/10/2014, 12:27 PM
Yeah. He is a big guy.
