Netflix and Marvel announced that they’ve added another cast member to their upcoming Daredevil series, which debuts next year. Joining Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio, Rosario Dawson, Elden Henson, and Deborah Ann Woll will be Scott Glenn.
Glenn will play Stick, the “mysterious martial artist and mentor” to Daredevil Matt Murdock.
“Stick is one of the most important figures in Matt Murdock’s life and Scott Glenn embodies all the qualities of someone so integral to this hero’s journey,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “There are few actors who could bring such the authenticity, gravitas and charisma to such a key role in Matt’s journey to become the super hero we call Daredevil.”
Glenn is known for films like The Silence of the Lambs, The Bourne Ultimatum, and The Hunt For Red October. More recently, he appeared on HBO’s The Leftovers.
Daredevil will be the first original series from Marvel for Netflix, but will be followed by shows about Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage. These will all culminate in a miniseries event, The Defenders.
The shows are to be shot in New York.
