We’ve Got our next round of casting from Marvel and Netflix’s Iron Fist.
Variety managed to get an exclusive which left them privy to the news that both Tom Pelphrey (Banshee) and Jessica Stroup (90210) had been cast in the new series as siblings Joy and Ward Meachum. Following the casting news, Variety post a description of the role the siblings play in the story:
The children of Harold Meachum (Wenham), Joy and Ward have spent their lives building Rand Enterprises to its current standing in the world, only to have all their work put in jeopardy when Danny returns to claim his birthright. They are childhood acquaintances of Danny Rand’s who now play an important role in Rand Enterprises.
So as well as the two new additions to the cast, we currently have Finn Jones as Danny Rand / Iron Fist, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, and David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Joy and Ward’s father. We’ll keep you updated as more casting takes place.
