Luke Cage

As Marvel preps their first Netflix TV show, Daredevil, fans are already looking toward the other four shows: Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, with them all leading to The Defenders. It’s a unique time for each of those properties, as each has yet to cast anyone. Actors big and small are eyeing and vying for some of the leads.

His name is Mars Crain and while you may not have heard of him, he’s a hulk of a man, easily the personification of Cage. He got his start in Will Smith’s Hancock and was recently cast by Paul Thomas Anderson for his upcoming film, Inherent Vice. Crain seems poised to break out.
