    Hope actor can play Daredevil good. Can’t wait to read other actors that will be cast on show.

  2. Ben Kabak says:

    Love him!!!

  3. Lysh says:

    I don’t know anything about him, but he looks like he could pull it off. I’m excited for these little Marvel shows.

  4. CKG says:

    Sigh. I guess I have to watch this show now.

  5. Superhero says:

    Assuming he can do a passable American accent, he’s a pretty good choice.

  7. Alan says:

    i know nothing about this actor but im still glad he was cast because it means its not michael hall as some people were suggesting and that would not have been good.

  8. Kat Farr says:

    when is Nexflix going to get The Killing done???

  9. James D says:

    Nice I liked him on Boardwalk Empire. Guess it was too much to ask for Richard Madden, but I’m satisfied with this choice lets hope they do the character justice this time (sorry Ben :) ) nice new layout by the way TVLine very snazzy.

  10. Jon says:

    Interesting choice, He was great in “Stardust” and pretty good in “Boardwalk Empire”. I’m willing to see where this goes.

  11. Larry says:

    hello!,I really like your writing so much! proportion we keep in touch more about your post on AOL?
    I need an expert on this house to unravel my problem.

    Maybe that’s you! Looking ahead to look you.

  12. Bonnie Mitchell says:

    NO WAY, sorry he just seem to have the umph for it, looks more like a side kick. Sorry just my thoughts. I’ve never made a negative comment before but…..

    • Katie_Mead says:

      Charlie Cox has already proven in the past that he can carry leading roles, but he seems a strange choice to play Daredevil . He’ll need to bulk up substantially from his current stick insect streamlined muscle tone to look this part.

  13. Never heard/seen him before so don’t want to judge. As long as his English accent doesn’t slip through lol :)

  14. jim says:

    what makes them think Daredevil will succeed at all? It was tried once and went down the drain

  15. Lora says:

    I have missed Mr. Slater and am super excited to see him in…well, anything.

  16. Niejan says:

    What happened to TVLINE? I LIKKE ITTT

  17. June Pearce says:

    It is funny to read these comments now that Charlie has made his mark as Daredevil! As you all now know the show has received rave reviews and has been commissioned for a second series which is already filming in New York!
