“The Hunger Games’” Elden Henson has joined Netflix’s new Marvel series “Daredevil.”

Henson will play Foggy Nelson, Matt Murdock’s (a.k.a. Daredevil) best friend and legal partner.

“Elden plays one of the most important characters in the world of Marvel’s ‘Daredevil,’ and we’re thrilled to see Foggy Nelson brought to life by such an incredibly talented actor,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s head of television. “He perfectly captures the heart and soul of this series, bringing an added resonance to Matt Murdock’s fight against the injustice in their great city.”

Henson will join Charlie Cox (as Matt Murdock), Vincent D’Onofrio (as Wilson Fisk) and Rosario Dawson.

Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is executive produced by series showrunner Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard, along with Loeb.

“Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix and is set to premiere in 2015.
