Even superheroes need a best friend, right? Marvel has cast Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Matt Murdock’s friend and law partner, in the upcoming Netflix series Daredevil.

Here’s what Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeff Loeb, had to say about the news:

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. 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.

Elden Henson is probably best known for his role in The Mighty Ducks, but you’ll also be able to see him in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, both Parts 1 and 2, as Pollux. He’ll be joining Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Rosario Dawson as part of the Daredevil cast.

Daredevil will premiere on Netflix in 2015. What do you think of the casting so far? Who do you hope will join the team? Let us know in the comments!
