  2. Matt’s Inside Line: Scoop on Arrow, Grey’s, Once, Lethal Weapon, Supergirl, The Night Shift, NCIS and More (Date: 09 Aug 2017)
    1. Have anything new to share about Arrow‘s Slade sticking around? — It appears Oliver will make good on his offer to his frenemy, in trade for his help against Adrian Chase, seeing as the CW series is currently seeking an Aussie lad to fill the guest-starring role of an “introverted, moody and naturally athletic” teenager.

  1. ARROW Season 6 May See Jessica De Gouw’s Huntress Return; Will She Be Friend Or Foe? (Date: 10 Aug 2017)
    1. Speaking to Comic Book Resources, executive producer Marc Guggenheim has this response when asked about De Gouw’s potential return. “I want to say, ‘Absolutely [to Huntress returning].’ Jessica De Gouw has expressed an absolute willingness to come back. Jessica’s a favorite actor of mine, and the Huntress is a favorite character of mine. I want to make it happen in Season 6. We’ve got some plans for the later half of the year that I think she will fit into really well, so we’ll see.”

  2. John Barrowman Addresses Possible Arrowverse Return (Date: 12 Aug 2017)
    1. But according to a recent post from Barrowman’s Instagram – inspired by our reporting – it appears that he is very willing to return. Barrowman took to Instagram today to address recent comments made by Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim. As the fan-favorite actor explained, he had been under the impression that there wasn’t an opportunity for him to return – until he read our report on Guggenheim’s comments. “I am surprised and very happy to hear Marc Guggenheim’s comments about Merlyn’s future in the Arrowverse,” Barrowman explained, “because in a very decisive phone conversation we had with Wendy Mericle, I was led to believe that there were no plans to bring Merlyn back.”

  3. Arrow EP Discusses the Possibility of John Barrowman’s Return (11 Aug 2017)
    1. “That’s up to John,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told reporters during a recent roundtable. “We told John when we called him to tell him about the events of the finale, every single person on all the shows has come back in some shape or form. We’ve got flashbacks, we’ve got time travel, we’ve got parallel universes. Goodbye is never goodbye. He has an open invitation to return to the show any time he wants.”

  4. Matt’s Inside Line: Scoop on Arrow, Grey’s, Once, Lethal Weapon, Supergirl, The Night Shift, NCIS and More (Date: 09 Aug 2017)
    1. There has been a lot of hinting and build-up to Arrow‘s Felicity starting up her own company, Smoak Tech. Are there plans for this in Season 6? — Co-showrunner Marc Guggenheim explained, “That was something we wanted to do last year, and then we got sort of seduced by the Helix storyline. I would say that people wanting that storyline will be happy, but for reasons that I think will be very obvious, it can’t be called Smoak Technologies. And all those clever readers who are like, ‘That’s because she’ll be changing her last name to Queen,’ it’s not Queen Technologies, either.”
    2. https://tvline.com/2017/08/09/arrow-season-6-spoilers-felicity-slade-son/
  5. Arrow Season 6 Villain Will Be the Biggest Bad Yet, EPs Promise (Date: 07 Aug 2017)
    1. At Comic-Con International, Arrow executive producers Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim weighed in which characters are returning, how Oliver’s son William will affect the show, and how they plan to bring the first four-episode crossover to the CW this fall. The season’s theme is family. Examine being a father and a superhero. They “are just focusing on the elements that worked last year. The gritty crime stories, the grounded tone.”

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

 

  1. Spoiler Room: Scoop on Blindspot, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Grey’s Anatomy, and more (Date 10 Aug 2017)
    1. Will Kuasa crossing paths with Ray on Vixen be addressed on Legends of Tomorrow? — Ray’s  knowledge of Kuasa just may help the Legends version of Vixen. EP Marc Guggenheim says, “If you go back and look at Vixen season 2, I wouldn’t exactly call her fighting alongside Ray, she’s always been morally questionable, but I think that’s what makes it interesting as far as Amaya is concerned is that Ray, at the appropriate moment, will accurately tell her that there were moments where Kuasa was capable of selfless good, so I think that gives Amaya a little bit of hope.”

MAIN CAST

 

Finn Jones – as – Danny Rand / Iron Fist (The Sarah Janes Adventures, Game Of Thrones) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3645691/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A billionaire Buddhist monk and martial artist proficient in kung-fu, with the ability to call upon the mystical power of the Iron Fist. Jones described the character as “someone struggling to find his identity”, and identified with the character’s loneliness being an orphan like Rand. He noted that “Danny gets really stressed and really pissed off sometimes, and I understand that … [his] optimism and where that comes from.”In preparation for the role, Jones studied kung fu, wushu, and tai chi, along with weight training, Buddhist philosophy, and meditation. Toby Nichols portrays a young Danny Rand.

 

Jessica Henwick – as – Colleen Wing (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Game of Thrones) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3725055/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A martial artist ally of Rand who runs her own martial arts dojo called Chikara Dojo in New York City. Henwick felt the most defining word for Wing was “alone”, saying, “She doesn’t want to be anyone’s love interest and open herself up in that way.” Henwick also tried “to pull out that sort of very dry humor that [Wing] has, and that no bullshit New Yorker demeanor” from the comics version in her portrayal.

 

Tom Pelphrey – as – Ward Meachum (Guiding Light, As the World Turns, Banshee) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1670601/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • The son of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with his sister Joy is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return. Ward is a character from the comics, though Pelphrey noted “we’re not necessarily beholden to representing him [in the series] exactly as he appears in the comic book.” Stroup said that Ward would experience some “male angst” on Rand’s return, because “Ward would have been the one who picked on [Rand] when he was little so as pure and innocent and great as Iron Fist is, he comes in and he causes some problems” there. Ilan Eskenazi portrays a teenage Ward Meachum.

 

Jessica Stroup – as – Joy Meachum (90210, The Following, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1888211/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • The daughter of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with her brother Ward is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return. Stroup said that Joy “absolutely loves” Rand, and his return to New York is “like this rebirth of what she once was, and she gets to ask these questions about herself because he’s posing them to her.” Stroup said that Joy would initially be unsure whether Rand is who he says he is. Aimee Laurence portrays a young Joy Meachum.

 

Ramón Rodríguez – as – Bakuto (The Wire, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Charlie’s Angels TV Series, Need for Speed) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1913125/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t9

  • A leader of a faction of The Hand and Colleen Wing’s sensei.

 

Sacha Dhawan – as – Davos (After Earth, An Adventure in Space and Time, Sherlock) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0223527/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A skilled martial artist who is the son of Lei Kung and Rand’s former best friend in K’un-Lun, who grew envious when Rand became the Iron Fist. Although Dhawan first appeared in the ninth episode of the first season, Dhawan noted that the majority of Davos’ storyline was intended to be explored in a potential second season.

 

Rosario Dawson  – as – Claire Temple (Josie and the Pussycats, Men in Black II, The Adventures of Pluto Nash, Sin City, Rent, Clerks II, Robot Chicken, Gemini Division, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Defenders) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0206257/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A former nurse from Hell’s Kitchen who joins Wing’s dojo. Dawson reprises her role from previous Marvel Netflix series.

 

David Wenham  – as – Harold Meachum (Moulin Rouge!, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, After the Deluge, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Van Helsing, 300, 300: Rise of an Empire, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0920992/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A ruthless corporate leader and co-founder of Rand Enterprises who was partners with Rand’s parents at the time of their deaths. Regarding Harold’s relationship with his children, Joy and Ward, Wenham said the dynamic between the three of them “is complex, to say the least. It’s multilayered, it’s multidimensional, it’s surprising and it’s forever changing, depending on the circumstances.”

 

RECURRING CAST

 

David Furr as Wendell Rand (Bit part actor in a ton. Noted for appearances in 13 Hours, TURN: Washington’s Spies) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2412970/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

The original 2002 Spider-Man film, which starred Tobey Maguire as the titular webslinger, held on to the top spot for 15-years with a total domestic take of $403.7. But as of Monday, the top spot belongs to Wonder Woman. Box Office Mojo has the film’s current domestic gross sits at just over $404 million dollars and counting.

 

You won’t believe what shows lead viewers to watch Netflix’s Marvel series

https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/tv/2017/08/22/you-wont-believe-what-shows-lead-viewers-watch-netflixs-marvel-series/587947001/

Instead of going chronologically, Netflix found that much of its audience wanted to meet its resident butt-kicking woman first: The most popular viewing order starts with Jessica Jones, then moves to Daredevil, Luke Cage and finally, Iron Fist. (One in eight Marvel watchers is new to comic-based content before diving into their first superhero show, according to Netflix.)

MAIN CAST

 

Finn Jones – as – Danny Rand / Iron Fist (The Sarah Janes Adventures, Game Of Thrones) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3645691/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A billionaire Buddhist monk and martial artist proficient in kung-fu, with the ability to call upon the mystical power of the Iron Fist. Jones described the character as “someone struggling to find his identity”, and identified with the character’s loneliness being an orphan like Rand. He noted that “Danny gets really stressed and really pissed off sometimes, and I understand that … [his] optimism and where that comes from.”In preparation for the role, Jones studied kung fu, wushu, and tai chi, along with weight training, Buddhist philosophy, and meditation. Toby Nichols portrays a young Danny Rand.

 

Jessica Henwick – as – Colleen Wing (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Game of Thrones) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3725055/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A martial artist ally of Rand who runs her own martial arts dojo called Chikara Dojo in New York City. Henwick felt the most defining word for Wing was “alone”, saying, “She doesn’t want to be anyone’s love interest and open herself up in that way.” Henwick also tried “to pull out that sort of very dry humor that [Wing] has, and that no bullshit New Yorker demeanor” from the comics version in her portrayal.

 

Tom Pelphrey – as – Ward Meachum (Guiding Light, As the World Turns, Banshee) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1670601/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • The son of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with his sister Joy is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return. Ward is a character from the comics, though Pelphrey noted “we’re not necessarily beholden to representing him [in the series] exactly as he appears in the comic book.” Stroup said that Ward would experience some “male angst” on Rand’s return, because “Ward would have been the one who picked on [Rand] when he was little so as pure and innocent and great as Iron Fist is, he comes in and he causes some problems” there. Ilan Eskenazi portrays a teenage Ward Meachum.

 

Jessica Stroup – as – Joy Meachum (90210, The Following, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1888211/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • The daughter of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with her brother Ward is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return. Stroup said that Joy “absolutely loves” Rand, and his return to New York is “like this rebirth of what she once was, and she gets to ask these questions about herself because he’s posing them to her.” Stroup said that Joy would initially be unsure whether Rand is who he says he is. Aimee Laurence portrays a young Joy Meachum.

 

Ramón Rodríguez – as – Bakuto (The Wire, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Charlie’s Angels TV Series, Need for Speed) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1913125/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t9

  • A leader of a faction of The Hand and Colleen Wing’s sensei.

 

Sacha Dhawan – as – Davos (After Earth, An Adventure in Space and Time, Sherlock) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0223527/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A skilled martial artist who is the son of Lei Kung and Rand’s former best friend in K’un-Lun, who grew envious when Rand became the Iron Fist. Although Dhawan first appeared in the ninth episode of the first season, Dhawan noted that the majority of Davos’ storyline was intended to be explored in a potential second season.

 

Rosario Dawson  – as – Claire Temple (Josie and the Pussycats, Men in Black II, The Adventures of Pluto Nash, Sin City, Rent, Clerks II, Robot Chicken, Gemini Division, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Defenders) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0206257/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A former nurse from Hell’s Kitchen who joins Wing’s dojo. Dawson reprises her role from previous Marvel Netflix series.

 

David Wenham  – as – Harold Meachum (Moulin Rouge!, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, After the Deluge, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Van Helsing, 300, 300: Rise of an Empire, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0920992/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A ruthless corporate leader and co-founder of Rand Enterprises who was partners with Rand’s parents at the time of their deaths. Regarding Harold’s relationship with his children, Joy and Ward, Wenham said the dynamic between the three of them “is complex, to say the least. It’s multilayered, it’s multidimensional, it’s surprising and it’s forever changing, depending on the circumstances.”

 

RECURRING CAST

 

David Furr as Wendell Rand (Bit part actor in a ton. Noted for appearances in 13 Hours, TURN: Washington’s Spies) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2412970/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

This Sci-Fi Fan Is Done With SyFy

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

The quality of shows on the network known as SyFy had been in a long slow death spiral since Battlestar Galatica and Stargate ended. Sure there were fun gems like Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Sanctuary but Haven was actually painful for me to watch and Helix was Ronald D Moore finally hanging himself with darkness. I was about done with the network at that point. I mean it didn’t even have “Sci-Fi” in it’s name anymore. SyFy is such a poor shadow of what I desired the network to be in name alone. It wasn’t science fiction. It was…..I actually have no idea what “Fy” stands for. Nor do I care at this point

 

I have hoped that with the few new interesting titles that “SyFy” had turned the corner. 12 Monkeys was an unexpectedly phenomenal series. And I greatly enjoyed the Firefly-esk of Defiance enough to do the podcast Voices Of Defiance on the show. Continuum was also a great series to watch. But the cracks were showing with the disappointment of Blood and Chrome. Then the network cleared it’s slate of Defiance and Continuum only to throw it’s might into the likes of Ascension, Dark Matter, Killjoys and Expanse.

 

It’s obvious now that “SyFy” is searching for its Walking Dead or Game Of Thrones. Both of these are series that should have originated on “SyFy” but other networks came out with the hit shows. SyFy should be hitting it out of the park with some of these shows. They are at least as good as the CW-based DC Comic book shows known in their fandoms are the “Berlanti-verse.” So I’m apt to blame network mis-management. “SyFy” has never has success with marketing or promotion with science fiction since Battlestar Galactica and neither has “SyFy’s” parent network of NBC. It’s like watching the Cleveland Browns of television. You know they’ll never win due to poor management and terrible coaching.

 

So with today’s announcement of the cancellation of Dark Matter I’m also announcing that I’ll be stepping down from any new “SyFy” show. Once The Expanse and 12 Monkeys are over so will be my ability to find “SyFy” with my remote. Because even with a new show I know the network will only disappoint me and not continue the series. And life’s too short to be disappointed one more time. So long “SyFy,” you had so much unrealized potential.

ARROW NEWS

 

  1. Arrow: Season 6 Will Break Diggle, Physically & Emotionally (Date: 03 Aug 2017)
    1. Speaking with the press at Comic-Con International, David Ramsey confirmed that Diggle does, in fact, make it off the island alive, but he will be a profoundly broken man when he returns to Star City. Asked about Diggle’s greatest challenge going into Season 6, Ramsey replied, “We have to break Diggle. I think Season 6 we’ll see Diggle get broken in a way he hasn’t been broken before. It already starts in [the first episode], and I think there’s a certain amount of it that will continue throughout the season. I think it’s an arc for Diggle that we haven’t seen, even beyond his brother coming back to life and killing his evil brother and that leading to the death of the Canary.” Diggle’s brokenness will — in part — come from the trauma of his island experience will “greatly affect the whole team.” Diggle is typically an open book — keeping both Team Arrow and Lyla informed about what’s going on in his life. With these “monumental” physical and mental changes happening to him, it sounds like we’re going to see a version of Diggle we have never seen before.

  2. ‘Arrow’ Adds Sydelle Noel for Season 6 (EXCLUSIVE) (Date: 04 Aug 2017)
    1. The CW’s first DC show, “Arrow,” has cast Sydelle Noel in a recurring role for its sixth season, Variety has learned exclusively. Noel will play Samanda Watson, an FBI agent who will be investigating Oliver Queen’s connection to the Green Arrow. Noel was most recently seen on “GLOW” on Netflix, and she also has a role in Marvel’s upcoming “Blank Panther” movie.

  3. ‘Arrow’ Producers Already Have Plans For Season 7 [TCA 2017] (Date: 03 Aug 2017)
    1. While previewing season six with the Television Critics Association after a panel for Legends, producer Marc Guggenheim, who also co-created and produces Arrow, said the Arrow writers already have ideas for season seven. “We’ve already started talking about ooh, we have a shape for season seven already,” Guggenheim said. “This is the earliest we’ve ever had an idea for a season that far ahead, but it’s come out of our conversations about season six.” Beyond season seven, it may be time to begin thinking about giving Arrow a proper series finale. However, when that inevitable time comes, Guggenheim would not require long-term planning to deliver the ending he and co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg have planned. “I think we’ve always had an endpoint in mind,” Guggenheim said. “We’ve always known how we want to end the show. That end point doesn’t require X number of seasons. If we had to, we could work towards it as long as we knew with enough leeway, we could work towards the moment we’ve been talking about since day one.”

  4. CW Announces Fall Dates For DC Superhero Crossovers – TCA (Date: 02 Aug 2017)
    1. CW announced that the first night of this season’s WBTV/DC superhero crossover will be Monday, Nov. 27 when Supergirl will be paired with Arrow. That day reps a one time move to Monday for the special occasion. The crossover concludes Nov. 28 with The Flash in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Commenting on the crossovers going from four nights last season to two this fall, CW president Mark Pedowitz said, “Last year’s (crossover) was the most successful week in CW history in terms of ratings and everything. We felt in this particular case we had Flash on Legends paired, so it was better to make it two two-hour movies – a miniseries – we thought this was the best way to go. We had a lot of conversations with producers and marketing people.”

GENERAL DC TV NEWS

 

  1. DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW: SEASON 3’S SUPERNATURAL VILLAIN RECRUITS GORILLA GRODD (Date: 02 Aug 2017)
    1. “At the head of whatever you want to call our evil organization, it’s different. Last year it was three characters from the three different shows that form this alliance. This is a non-human entity,” executive producer Phil Klemmer told IGN at the 2017 TV Critics’ Association summer press tour. “This is a much more supernatural, spooky vibe this season. We’re dealing more with magic. It’s less real-world bad guys.” Klemmer was keen to leave that character a secret, but he did promise you will hear the character’s name in the Season 3 premiere. Unlike previous seasons which are more science or time-travel focused, Season 3 of Legends will “be more in the world of the occult and monsters.” Following behind this leader as his acolytes are familiar characters like Damien Darhk, who will have been brought back to life after his death on Arrow, as well as Gorilla Grodd. This will be a post-Gorilla City Grodd. Klemmer confirms they’re still actively campaigning for Matt Ryan’s Constantine to appear on Legends of Tomorrow as well.

  2. The Flash Casts Iconic Justice League Member For Season 4 (Date 31 July 2017)
    1. The CW has cast Hartley Sawyer in the role of Ralph Dibny, who will play a recurring role in the upcoming, fourth season of The Flash. One of the Flash’s most iconic allies, Ralph Dibny — a.k.a. The Elongated Man — is a fast-talking private investigator with investigative skills that rival those of Batman. Upon discovering he has the power to stretch his body to any shape or form, Dibny uses his new abilities to help Team Flash solve one of Central City’s greatest mysteries.

  3. ‘DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow’: Jes Macallan To Recur In Season 3 (Date 01 Aug 2017)
    1. Mistresses alumna Jes Macallan has signed on for a recurring role in the third season of the CW’s superhero drama DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Macallan will play Special Agent Ava Sharpe, a hard working agent for a secret branch of the Federal Government (the Time Bureau) dedicated to the regulation of time-travel and the protection of history.

  4. Spoiler Room: Scoop on Game of Thrones, The Flash, Supergirl, and more (Date: 03 Aug 2017)
    1. What do you have on Barry’s return to The Flash? — Apparently, not everyone will be on board with how to go about getting Barry back. “I wish I could say that the team unanimously agrees that things are not the same when the season starts, but not everybody feels that way,” Carlos Valdes tells me. “Most of the energy on the team is toward getting Barry back, and Cisco may or may not have some things up his sleeve with regards with how to make that happen, but there is a member of the team that’s not on board, and that ultimately makes the mission to get Barry back a lot more difficult. But the thing about Cisco is if he wants to get his friends back, he will do whatever it takes the get his friends back — and that’s not just Barry.”
    2. With Floriana Lima not sticking around as a regular, is there any hope you can give for Sanvers on Supergirl? — Yes, Floriana Lima won’t be a series regular next season, but the Supergirl bosses hope to keep her around as much as possible. So in the plus column, it really does sound like her character won’t meet a grim fate. “Maggie is welcome to come back any time she’s free,” EP Jessica Queller says. “We love Sanvers and we’re very sad that Floriana is not available full time this season.” EP Robert Rovner adds: “We love this relationship we’ve created. With that, we’re going to be telling a modern day love story that really honors their relationship that hopefully will resonate and I think will be very satisfying. Hopefully, she will come join us [again]. The door is always open for Floriana Lima.”

  5. Legends of Tomorrow Casts Spartacus Actor as Julius Caesar (Date 05 Aug 2017)
    1. When the show resumes this fall, the Legends will travel from present day 2017 to Ancient Rome. When in Rome, the Legends will run into none other than the infamous Julius Caesar. CBR has confirmed that Julius Caesar will be played by actor Simon Merrells. Merrells previously starred on The CW’s The Tomorrow People with The Flash’s Robbie Amell. Marrells is also the sixth Spartacus actor to join the Arrowverse, which includes Manu Bennett, Todd Lasance, Liam McIntyre, Nick Tarabay, and Katrina Law.

  6. Supergirl Casts 24 Vet Carlos Bernard as Maggie’s [Spoiler] in Season 3 (Date: 04 Aug 2017)
    1. 24 alum Carlos Bernard will guest-star during Season 3 of the CW series as Maggie Sawyer’s father, TVLine has learned.

MAIN CAST

 

Finn Jones – as – Danny Rand / Iron Fist (The Sarah Janes Adventures, Game Of Thrones) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3645691/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A billionaire Buddhist monk and martial artist proficient in kung-fu, with the ability to call upon the mystical power of the Iron Fist. Jones described the character as “someone struggling to find his identity”, and identified with the character’s loneliness being an orphan like Rand. He noted that “Danny gets really stressed and really pissed off sometimes, and I understand that … [his] optimism and where that comes from.”In preparation for the role, Jones studied kung fu, wushu, and tai chi, along with weight training, Buddhist philosophy, and meditation. Toby Nichols portrays a young Danny Rand.

 

Jessica Henwick – as – Colleen Wing (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Game of Thrones) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3725055/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A martial artist ally of Rand who runs her own martial arts dojo called Chikara Dojo in New York City. Henwick felt the most defining word for Wing was “alone”, saying, “She doesn’t want to be anyone’s love interest and open herself up in that way.” Henwick also tried “to pull out that sort of very dry humor that [Wing] has, and that no bullshit New Yorker demeanor” from the comics version in her portrayal.

 

Tom Pelphrey – as – Ward Meachum (Guiding Light, As the World Turns, Banshee) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1670601/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • The son of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with his sister Joy is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return. Ward is a character from the comics, though Pelphrey noted “we’re not necessarily beholden to representing him [in the series] exactly as he appears in the comic book.” Stroup said that Ward would experience some “male angst” on Rand’s return, because “Ward would have been the one who picked on [Rand] when he was little so as pure and innocent and great as Iron Fist is, he comes in and he causes some problems” there. Ilan Eskenazi portrays a teenage Ward Meachum.

 

Jessica Stroup – as – Joy Meachum (90210, The Following, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1888211/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • The daughter of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with her brother Ward is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return. Stroup said that Joy “absolutely loves” Rand, and his return to New York is “like this rebirth of what she once was, and she gets to ask these questions about herself because he’s posing them to her.” Stroup said that Joy would initially be unsure whether Rand is who he says he is. Aimee Laurence portrays a young Joy Meachum.

 

Ramón Rodríguez – as – Bakuto (The Wire, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Charlie’s Angels TV Series, Need for Speed) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1913125/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t9

  • A leader of a faction of The Hand and Colleen Wing’s sensei.

 

Sacha Dhawan – as – Davos (After Earth, An Adventure in Space and Time, Sherlock) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0223527/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A skilled martial artist who is the son of Lei Kung and Rand’s former best friend in K’un-Lun, who grew envious when Rand became the Iron Fist. Although Dhawan first appeared in the ninth episode of the first season, Dhawan noted that the majority of Davos’ storyline was intended to be explored in a potential second season.

 

Rosario Dawson  – as – Claire Temple (Josie and the Pussycats, Men in Black II, The Adventures of Pluto Nash, Sin City, Rent, Clerks II, Robot Chicken, Gemini Division, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Defenders) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0206257/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A former nurse from Hell’s Kitchen who joins Wing’s dojo. Dawson reprises her role from previous Marvel Netflix series.

 

David Wenham  – as – Harold Meachum (Moulin Rouge!, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, After the Deluge, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Van Helsing, 300, 300: Rise of an Empire, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0920992/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A ruthless corporate leader and co-founder of Rand Enterprises who was partners with Rand’s parents at the time of their deaths. Regarding Harold’s relationship with his children, Joy and Ward, Wenham said the dynamic between the three of them “is complex, to say the least. It’s multilayered, it’s multidimensional, it’s surprising and it’s forever changing, depending on the circumstances.”

 

RECURRING CAST

 

David Furr as Wendell Rand (Bit part actor in a ton. Noted for appearances in 13 Hours, TURN: Washington’s Spies) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2412970/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

MAIN CAST

 

Finn Jones – as – Danny Rand / Iron Fist (The Sarah Janes Adventures, Game Of Thrones) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3645691/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A billionaire Buddhist monk and martial artist proficient in kung-fu, with the ability to call upon the mystical power of the Iron Fist. Jones described the character as “someone struggling to find his identity”, and identified with the character’s loneliness being an orphan like Rand. He noted that “Danny gets really stressed and really pissed off sometimes, and I understand that … [his] optimism and where that comes from.”In preparation for the role, Jones studied kung fu, wushu, and tai chi, along with weight training, Buddhist philosophy, and meditation. Toby Nichols portrays a young Danny Rand.

 

Jessica Henwick – as – Colleen Wing (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Game of Thrones) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3725055/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A martial artist ally of Rand who runs her own martial arts dojo called Chikara Dojo in New York City. Henwick felt the most defining word for Wing was “alone”, saying, “She doesn’t want to be anyone’s love interest and open herself up in that way.” Henwick also tried “to pull out that sort of very dry humor that [Wing] has, and that no bullshit New Yorker demeanor” from the comics version in her portrayal.

 

Tom Pelphrey – as – Ward Meachum (Guiding Light, As the World Turns, Banshee) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1670601/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • The son of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with his sister Joy is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return. Ward is a character from the comics, though Pelphrey noted “we’re not necessarily beholden to representing him [in the series] exactly as he appears in the comic book.” Stroup said that Ward would experience some “male angst” on Rand’s return, because “Ward would have been the one who picked on [Rand] when he was little so as pure and innocent and great as Iron Fist is, he comes in and he causes some problems” there. Ilan Eskenazi portrays a teenage Ward Meachum.

 

Jessica Stroup – as – Joy Meachum (90210, The Following, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1888211/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • The daughter of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with her brother Ward is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return. Stroup said that Joy “absolutely loves” Rand, and his return to New York is “like this rebirth of what she once was, and she gets to ask these questions about herself because he’s posing them to her.” Stroup said that Joy would initially be unsure whether Rand is who he says he is. Aimee Laurence portrays a young Joy Meachum.

 

Ramón Rodríguez – as – Bakuto (The Wire, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Charlie’s Angels TV Series, Need for Speed) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1913125/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t9

  • A leader of a faction of The Hand and Colleen Wing’s sensei.

 

Sacha Dhawan – as – Davos (After Earth, An Adventure in Space and Time, Sherlock) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0223527/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A skilled martial artist who is the son of Lei Kung and Rand’s former best friend in K’un-Lun, who grew envious when Rand became the Iron Fist. Although Dhawan first appeared in the ninth episode of the first season, Dhawan noted that the majority of Davos’ storyline was intended to be explored in a potential second season.

 

Rosario Dawson  – as – Claire Temple (Josie and the Pussycats, Men in Black II, The Adventures of Pluto Nash, Sin City, Rent, Clerks II, Robot Chicken, Gemini Division, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Defenders) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0206257/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A former nurse from Hell’s Kitchen who joins Wing’s dojo. Dawson reprises her role from previous Marvel Netflix series.

 

David Wenham  – as – Harold Meachum (Moulin Rouge!, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, After the Deluge, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Van Helsing, 300, 300: Rise of an Empire, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0920992/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • A ruthless corporate leader and co-founder of Rand Enterprises who was partners with Rand’s parents at the time of their deaths. Regarding Harold’s relationship with his children, Joy and Ward, Wenham said the dynamic between the three of them “is complex, to say the least. It’s multilayered, it’s multidimensional, it’s surprising and it’s forever changing, depending on the circumstances.”
