I knew as soon as I saw Elden Henson having been cast in Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ Netflix Series that he would be playing Foggy Nelson. That’s a good thing. He is a good choice for the role. He’s not a flashy name but that’s fine as Henson is a solid actor.
Henson will next be seen in the next the final two Hunger Games films, ‘Mockingjay- Part 1 and 2’. He’s kicked around as one of those actors that has been in so many things that you’ve forgotten or never realized he was in, from ‘The Mighty Ducks’, ‘She’s all That’, ‘Idle Hands’ (a guilty pleasure of mine..), Tim Blake Nelson’s excellent ‘O’, ‘The Butterfly Effect’, ‘Lords of Dogtown’, ‘Battle of Shaker Heights’ and many other projects.
I’ve been pleased with the casting so far. I wish it didn’t feel as though Daredevil was being relagated to TV. He is by no means a second tier character. If Doctor Strange can have his own film, surely there could be a great Daredevil film as well.
