As filming continues for the third season of Daredevil, Netflix has announced a new addition to the cast. Jay Ali (The Fosters) will be starring in the upcoming season as Rahul “Ray” Nadeem, an honest but ambitious FBI agent willing to go to any length for his family.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jay into our stellar cast,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television and Daredevil‘s executive producer. “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.”
Details on the third season are light, but it is expected to be based upon the Born Again story from Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli. Ali joins fellow newcomer Joanne Whalley as Sister Maggie in the series while Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson and Vincent D’Onofrio will reprise their roles.
