Netflix and Marvel’s “Daredevil” series has cast Scott Glenn as the blind vigilante’s mentor, the mysterious martial artist Stick.

“Stick is one of the most important figures in Matt Murdock’s life and Scott Glenn embodies all the qualities of someone so integral to this hero’s journey,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “There are few actors who could bring such the authenticity, gravitas and charisma to such a key role in Matt’s journey to become the super hero we call Daredevil.”

Glenn most recently appeared in HBO’s “The Leftovers,” and is perhaps best known as Jack Crawford in “Silence of the Lambs” and Capt. Bart Mancuso in “The Hunt for Red October.”

Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Rosario Dawson and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk) also star. The comicbook adaptation is executive produced by series showrunner Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard, along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb. “Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
