USA Today has a look at the upcoming Marvel's Daredevil series on Netflix and more specifically about former Law & Order: Criminal Intent star Vincent D'Onofrio taking on the role of Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of crime.
This take on Fisk is a little different. He's a gangster that wants to clean up his city same as Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), but Kingpin's methods are very different from Daredevil's. This is as much of an origin story for Fisk as it is Murdock.
D'Onofrio can't match up to the physical characteristics of the comic book Kingpin who is supposed to be 6'7" and 450 lbs. The actor shaved his head and added 30 lbs. to his usual 6'3" 250 lbs. frame. But he still comes across as someone who can through a punch with a lot of weight behind it.
Here are two of the first good looks at D'Onofrio as the Kingpin.
Marvel's Daredevil debuts on Netflix April 10th.
