Character actor Frank Whaley has reportedly been cast in a recurring role for Netflix's Luke Cage, according to Deadline. Whaley is said to be playing Detective Rafael Scarfe, a "hard-nosed detective" who in comic books was the one-time partner of Misty Knight when she served as a NYPD officer.
Whaley has appeared in numerous television shows and movies, ranging from Pulp Fiction to roles in many Oliver Stone films. For fans of comic book adaptations on film and TV, the actor recently played a minor role in Gotham.
Luke Cage is scheduled to begin filming later this year, but no air date has been announced.
