Vincent D'Onofrio, best known for his turn as a human impersonating cockroach in Men In Black, has joined the cast of Netflix's Daredevil series.  The actor will play Wilson Fisk, a business kingpin and frequent foe of various masked vigilantes.  In a press release, Marvel described Fisk as "a powerful businessman whose interests in the future of Hell’s Kitchen will bring him into conflict with the blind attorney Matt Murdock and his alter ego Daredevil".  The actor also had a lengthy run on one of the billion Law and Order series as a detective, and also sported some awesome hair horns as shown above in The Cell

In related news, racists reacted positively to the casting of D'Onofrio, stating that they had finally "got one back" from the dreaded minorities ruining their comic adaptations.  Fisk had previously been played by black actor Michael Clarke Duncan in Fox's 2003 Daredevil movie, and racists were worried that the character had been entirely lost to the white race after Duncan's portrayal of the character was called one of the few bright spots of that film.  

In other related news, a number of fat bald comic creators expressed dismay with the announcement of D'Onofrio's casting, as they had hoped that Marvel would pick them instead to play the role of Fisk.  One creator, who declined to be named, told the Outhouse that he even bought a three piece suit for his audition, and that he'd simply have to find other excuses to wear it.   

Netflix will release all thirteen episodes of Daredevil in 2015.
