Marvel Studios have announced the addition of Matt Murdock’s slovenly law partner Franklin ‘Foggy’ Nelson to the cast of their Daredevil TV show for Netflix.

He’ll be played by Mighty Ducks and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay star Elden Henson.

“Elden plays one of the most important characters in the world of Marvel’s Daredevil, and we’re thrilled to see Foggy Nelson brought to life by such an incredibly talented actor,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s head of television.

“He perfectly captures the heart and soul of this series, bringing an added resonance to Matt Murdock’s fight against the injustice in their great city.”
