‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ Star Joins Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’

As the hero's best friend.

A “Hunger Games” star is is heading to Hell’s Kitchen.

Elden Henson, who will play Pollux in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay,” is also joining the cast of Marvel’s “Daredevil” as Franklin “Foggy” Nelson, Marvel confirmed.

Nelson is Daredevil alter-ego Matt Murdock’s best friend and legal partner, and was previously portrayed in the 2003 movie by Jon Favreau. Here, he’ll play alongside Charlie Cox as Murdock, Vincent D’Onofrio as the Kingpin, and Rosario Dawson as a yet-unannounced character in the upcoming Netflix series.

“Elden plays one of the most important characters in the world of Marvel’s Daredevil, and we’re thrilled to see Foggy Nelson brought to life by such an incredibly talented actor,” Marvel’s Jeff Leob said in a statement. “He perfectly captures the heart and soul of this series, bringing an added resonance to Matt Murdock’s fight against the injustice in their great city.”

In addition to appearing in “Mockingjay,” you might also know Henson from “The Mighty Ducks” movies, where he played Fulton Reed, which will hopefully inspire a slew of “Daredevil”/”Mighty Ducks” mashups.
