Daniel Webber (who, as Lee Harvey Oswald, was one of the best things about the otherwise disappointing Stephen King adaptation 11.22.63) will play Lewis Walcott, a young veteran who has had a difficult time re-assimilating into civilian society (a bit like Lee Harvey Oswald, then…)
Jason R Moore (A Lonely Place For Dying) will play Curtis Hoyle, a friend of Frank Castle’s and one of the few people who knows that he is still alive. Hoyle is a character from the comics – you can click here to find out more but we don’t know how near his arc in the show will be to the one in print, so there could potentially be spoilers.
Paul Schulze (Nurse Jackie) will play Rawlins, a high-ranking member of the CIA whose operations in Afghanistan intersect with Frank Castle. Rawlins is a character from the comics (where his first name is William). You can click here for more info, but with the same proviso we gave with Hoyle above.
Jaime Ray Newman (Eureka, Bates Motel) will play Sarah Lieberman, whose marriage to Micro (the previously announced Ebon Moss-Bachrach) has made her life far more complicated. (Micro is a former NSA analyst whose secrets may be of great value to Frank Castle and everyone around them.)
Michael Nathanson (The Knick, Wolf Of Wall Street) will play Sam Stein, a Homeland agent who is challenged by his partnership with Dinah Madani (the previously announced Amber Rose Revah), a Homeland Security agent who is on the trail of the Punisher.
“We couldn’t have asked for a more talented group of actors to round out the cast of Marvel’s The Punisher,” says executive producer and showrunner Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal and – we kid you not – Casualty back in 2003-4). “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,” says executive producer Jeph Loeb. “Each actors brings a special promise who surround Jon Bernthal’s exceptional performance.”
Marvel’s The Punisher will stream on Netflix in 2o17 following the release of Marvel’s Iron Fist.
