Marvel’s The Punisher is currently filming in New York and scheduled for 2017 release and as it continues to film new cast members are added throughout production. Now, Marvel has just confirmed five more actors joining the cast. Check them out below.
Daniel Webber (“11.22.63”) has been cast as Lewis Walcott, a young veteran who has had a difficult time re-assimilating into Civilian Society.
Jason R. Moore (“A Lonely Place for Dying”) joins as Curtis Hoyle, a friend of Frank Castle’s and one of the few people who knows he is alive.
Paul Schulze (“Nurse Jackie”) will play Rawlins, a high-ranking member of the CIA whose operations in Afghanistan intersect with Frank Castle.
Jaime Ray Newman (“Bates Motel”) plays Sarah Lieberman, Micro’s wife (played by Ebon Moss-Bachrach) whose marriage has made her life far more complicated.
Michael Nathanson (“The Knick,” “Wolf of Wall Street”) has been cast as Sam Stein, a Homeland agent who is challenged by his partnership with Dinah (Amber Rose Revah).
We learned of Nathanson’s casting yesterday when leaked photos from set were released. Now we can confirm his role which was speculated on yesterday. Just like many sites assumed, Nathanson will be playing the partner of Amber Rose Revah’s character. A majority of the roles are people directly tied to Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal). It is still unknown who is an ally and who is an enemy of the Punisher though.
Several of Marvel’s biggest names in TV weighed in on the castings. Here are their comments.
“We couldn’t have asked for a more talented group of actors to round out the cast of Marvel’s The Punisher,” said Executive Producer and showrunner Steve Lightfoot. “It’s a thrill to watch them each bring their characters to life with such layered, nuanced performances.”
“Marvel TV is very proud of the cast of The Punisher,” said Executive Producer Jeph Loeb, “Each actors brings a special promise who surround Jon Bernthal’s exceptional performance.”
