Jay Ali cast in Marvel’s Daredevil season three
Jay Ali (The Fosters, Darling Companion) will be joining the cast of Netflix original series Marvel’s Daredevil for its third season. Ali is set to play the role of Rahul “Ray” Nadeem, an honest but ambitious FBI agent willing to go to any length for his family.
Marvel’s Head of Television and the show’s executive producer Jeph Loeb says of Ali’s casting:
“We are thrilled to welcome Jay into our stellar cast. His storyline and riveting performance will captivate our fans in the third season of Marvel’s Daredevil.”
Erik Oleson, showrunner and executive producer, also spoke highly of what Ali could bring to the show.
“I love Jay Ali. It isn’t easy to join a cast as talented as Marvel’s Daredevil – and Jay blew us all out of the water with his audition. His moving performance in Season 3 will show the world that he’s a star in the making.”
It should be interesting to see how Ali will mesh with the current main cast of Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), and the returning Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Wilson Fisk, AKA The Kingpin of Hell’s Kitchen.
