Though it has been rolling the cameras for a while now in New York, the Marvel/Netflix take on Daredevil is still adding cast members. The latest recruit for the show is Scott Glenn.

The actor, last seen in The Paperboy, will play Stick, the mysterious martial artist who teaches Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) the ways of the warrior, which help form his Daredevil vigilante personality.

“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,” Marvel TV Jeph Loeb boss told Variety. “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.”

With Steven S. DeKnight acting as showrunner, Daredevil also features Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Franklin “Foggy” Nelson, Vincent D’Onofrio as The Kingpin and Rosario Dawson in a role that is being kept quiet for now.

The show should be hitting Netflix next year, kicking off the Defenders mega-series that also covers Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. You can read more about the Netflix plans in the current **Empire.
