Vincent D'onofrio - Vincent D'onofrio Cast As Daredevil Tv Villain Kingpin

Actor Vincent D'onofrio is going bad to play a villain in the new Daredevil Tv series.

The Men in Black and former Law & Order: Criminal Intent star has been cast as powerful businessman Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, a character who faces off against blind attorney Matt Murdock and his crime-fighting alter ego.

The late Michael Clarke Duncan portrayed Kingpin in the 2003 movie, opposite Ben Affleck as the Marvel superhero.

Boardwalk Empire star Charlie Cox will star as the title character in the forthcoming show, which will air on online streaming service Netflix next year (15).

Jeph Loeb, Marvel's head of television, says, "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."
