Law? Order?

Vincent D’Onofrio will be all about pure criminal intent on Daredevil.

The veteran actor has been cast on the upcoming drama as Wilson Fisk (better known as Kingpin), a powerful businessman in New York City.

The famous comic book villain will serve as a nemesis for the show's title character, Matt Murdock/Daredevil, the blind, crime-fighting attorney played by Boardwalk Empire‘s Charlie Cox.

It will likely be released some time in 2015.
