The Walking Dead's James Chen is playing Sam Chung (a.k.a. Blindspot in comic books) in Marvel Television's Iron Fist season 2 on Netflix according to the character's comic book co-creator Charles Soule.

Soule goes on to say that while Chen has been cast as Chung, he doesn't know if the character will adopt the Blindspot identity as he has in Soule's Daredevil run with co-creator Ron Garney.
"I don’t know anything about his role, whether he is or will be Blindspot, etc., but I mostly hope they keep his background from the comics. We’ll see!" Soule tweeted. "Fantastic either way."
Iron Fist's second season is scheduled to debut September 7 on Netflix.
