Marvel’s Daredevil Reveals Supporting Cast – Peter Shinkoda Lives (for Now)!

Brace yourselves for a really, really bad pun:  This is news I’ve been “Dai-ing” to hear for months.  Today, Marvel announced six supporting cast members to appear in their upcoming Netflix series Daredevil.  This rogues gallery of faces includes fan favorite and former Falling Skies badass Peter Shinkoda.  Alive.  Yes, really alive.

When Marvel’s Daredevil premieres on Friday, April 10, with all 13 episodes being released at once (Go Netflix!), we’ll finally get to see everyone in action.  Two of the six characters, Turk Barrett and Melvin Potter, come from the comics while the other four are new, created specifically for the series.  To read the full release from Marvel.com, click here: “Marvel’s Daredevil” for Netflix Reveals 6 Supporting Cast Members.

For a quick rundown, here are the six new cast members and the characters they’ll be playing.

Peter Shinkoda (Falling Skies, Hawaii Five-0) is Nobu, a Japanese businessman with his own agenda.  Hopefully, that agenda doesn’t include getting killed.
