Daredevil will be introducing another character from the Marvel comic book universe in Season 2. I have learned that Stephen Rider (Lee Daniels’ The Butler) will be joining the Netflix superhero series as a new regular. I hear he will play Blake Tower, a District Attorney for New York City who helps Charlie Cox’s Daredevil — a lawyer in his civilian identity as Matt Murdock — with information to help track down and capture criminals.

Rider is repped by WME and One Entertainment.
