As Netflix’s Daredevil series continues to fill in gaps in its cast—which now includes Daredevil, Kingpin, and Elektra, probably—it’s also secured Elden Henson to play the role of Matt Murdock’s best friend and legal partner, Foggy Nelson. Henson is best known for playing Fulton Reed, the outsider turned loyal teammate, in The Mighty Ducks franchise. And if you’re under a certain age, he also has an upcoming role as Pollux in the forthcoming sequels to The Hunger Games. Foggy Nelson has often filled a quiet, occasionally comic role in the Daredevil canon, and with Henson in the role, Daredevil can be assured of a sidekick with strong puck-handling skills and an effective, yet erratic slap shot.
