I first I didn't recoginze the name and checked him out. Once I saw him I knew who he was. He is tallented, but not a large man. I expected they were going to find someone in the Michael Clarke Duncan size department. So body suit or CGI?

He is not the actor I would have expected but once I thought about it he is just right. Even when he plays a good guy he has a spooky, imposing, and powerful presence. He gives the vibe of somebody you don't want to mess with. He is a tall and big guy but he is doesn't have a wrestler type physique. They may have decided not make him a physical threat to DD in the version. At least not in the way that Michael Clarke Duncan was.

I rememeber John Rhys-Davies played the Kingpin in one of the 80s Incredible Hulk TV movies that they were trying to spinoff into a Daredevil TV show. Rex Smith played Matt Murdock.

 Ya, he'll do. Wait so is this a Marvel project? I thought DD was with Fox?

Violatorr, Fox failed to start a new movie before their rights ended so it went back to Marvel. At first Kevin Feige at Marvel said they had no plans for him because he didn't fit into their long range movie plans. Then suddenly the Marvel/Netflix deal showed up. Netflix will run shows for Power Man, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, and DD which will culminate in The Defenders, a team-up movie of all of them.

 Great casting! He has the size presence and can be very intimidating. He was great as the villian in The Cell ( cant say that much about the movie) all in all good choice.

In the comics, despite his size King Pin has always prided himself on being a skilled hand to hand combatant. That aspect of the character is essential so I can't believe it wouldn't be part of the character in the series.

Violatorr, you must be kidding.

We'ren't you around when we had a discussion of the rights going back after Joe Carnahan walked out at the last minute. Rumours in Hollywood were coming out that Fox asked Marvel to extend the rights since they had a great thing in mind and Marvel said sure, we'll do it, but give us the rights to Silver Surfer and Galactus and Fox said no (probably when this whole Marvel vs Fox thing started to heat up as well.

As for the casting. Great actor. I was always thinking of a big wrestler type but this guy is intimidating. A nice pic via Google Images of Vincent D'Onofrio bald. He's wearing a nice outfit at the back of a limo. Not sure for which show or movie but it looks very Kingpin to me.

 Ya i remember. I just like to hear people tell me that Fox gave up rights to one of their Marvel characters...  =)
