I am definitely looking forward to Marvel’s Daredevil Netflix show.  The last we’d heard on the casting front was that Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) would be signing up for the role of Karen Page.  Now we’ve got confirmed news that Scott Glenn (The Silence of the Lambs, The Right Stuff) will also be joining the series as Stick, Matt Murdock’s mentor.  I can see this working, Glenn has a terse reserve that allows him to be commanding without being broad.

Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) will star as Murdock/Daredevil, along with Elden Henson (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) as Murdock’s best friend and legal partner Foggy Nelson, Vincent D’Onofrio as the crime lord Kingpin, and Rosario Dawson, who has an unknown ‘critical’ role on the show.

Marvel TV Head Jeph Loeb offered comment earlier today in a press release, “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.  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.”
