According to Deadline, actor Stephen Rider (The Butler, Safe House) has joined the cast of ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ Season 2 as a new regular. Rider is set to play Blake Tower, a “District Attorney for New York City who helps Charlie Cox’s Daredevil — a lawyer in his civilian identity as Matt Murdock — with information to help track down and capture criminals.”
Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern-day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
Executive Produced by Doug Petrie, Marco Ramirez and Drew Goddard, along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb.
Stars: Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Jon Bernthal (Frank Castle, aka The Punisher), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple) and Elodie Yung (Elektra Natchios).
‘Daredevil’ returns to Netflix for its second season in 2016.
