Elden Henson has joined Marvels Daredevil, an all-new thirteen-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015.
With a diverse body of acclaimed work, including the Hunger Games and Mighty Ducks franchises, Elden Henson will play Foggy Nelson, Matt Murdocks 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.
Hensen joins Charlie Cox (previously announced as Matt Murdock), Vincent Donofrio (previously announced as Wilson Fisk) and Rosario Dawson in the critically-lauded cast of Marvels Daredevil.
Elden plays one of the most important characters in the world of Marvels Daredevil, and were thrilled to see Foggy Nelson brought to life by such an incredibly talented actor, said Jeph Loeb, Marvels Head of Television. He perfectly captures the heart and soul of this series, bringing an added resonance to Matt Murdocks fight against the injustice in their great city.
Marvels 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.
