I’ve learned that Frank Whaley has joined the cast of Netflix’s Marvel series Luke Cage. He will play the recurring role of Detective Scarfe, a hard-nosed detective, in the third series in Marvel’s four-series package for Netflix.
Mike Colter stars as Luke Cage, a wrongly accused man who, granted super strength by a sabotaged experiment, escapes prison to become a superhero for hire. Alfre Woodard, Simone Missick and Theo Rossi co-star, with Rosario Dawson reprising her role from Daredevil.
Whaley, repped by APA and Karen Forman Management, recently wrapped production on the ABC miniseries Madoff, opposite Richard Dreyfuss. He can also be seen in the upcoming features, Paramount’s Monster Trucks and indie comedy The Outskirts. Whaley’s fourth feature as writer/director, Like Sunday, Like Rain, was released earlier this year.
