Every superhero needs a best friend, and every superhero television show needs to cast that friend. Netflix's Daredevil has found its super-BFF in a Hunger Games star.
Elden Henson will play fan-favorite Franklin "Foggy" Nelson in the streaming service's upcoming superhero drama, Marvel Entertainment announced via Twitter Thursday. Henson is going to have quite the surge over the next few years. He's also booked to play Pollux in the Hunger Games: Mockingjay movies. Henson also starred in the Mighty Ducks movies and CBS' Intelligence.
Daredevil tells the story of Matt Murdoch (Charlie Cox), a blind attorney who moonlights as super-sensed Daredevil and cleans up the streets of New York City. (Ben Affleck played the role in the big-screen version.) Foggy is Murdoch's best friend and legal partner, and a pillar in the community he wishes to keep safe. Vincent D'Onofrio will play villain Kingpin and Rosario Dawson will play a young woman looking to heal the wounds of the city.
Netflix is targeting a 2015 premiere for the 13-episode first season of Daredevil.
