Marvel’s Luke Cage is about to begin production within a couple of weeks, but we haven’t heard anything concerning casting. However, Heroic Hollywood is claiming that one of the show’s villains will be Cornell Cottonmouth, a drug lord who deals in heroin. A new player who might be taking over for Madame Gao, who was pushed out of Hell’s Kitchen by Daredevil, along with possibly angling to take on criminal territory left vacant.
If I had to make a casting suggestion it would for legendary character actor Keith David, who is best known for roles in They Live, The Thing, Cloud Atlas, Dead Presidents, HBO’s Spawn, Community, Platoon, Pitch Black, Requiem For A Dream, Halo, Mass Effect, and Adventure Time.
