Marvel's Iron Fist Casts Top of the Lake Star as Harold Meachum

We now know a little more about who might be on the receiving end of Marvel’s Iron Fist.

David Wenham (Top of the Lake, 300) has joined the cast of the Netflix series as ruthless corporate titan Harold Meachum, the man who (in comic-book lore, at least) played a role in the death of protagonist Danny Rand’s father, the streaming service announced Monday.

Meachum was partners with Danny’s parents at the time of their deaths, and will continue to play a role in the character’s future, according to a Netflix release.

Wenham joins the previously announced Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick, who will play Danny Rand/Iron Fist and martial arts expert Colleen Wing, respectively.

Marvel’s Iron Fist follows Danny’s return to New York City after being missing for years. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
