When it was announced that Netflix was producing “Daredevil” into a series, the question on everybody’s mind was, “Who’s going to play the Punisher?”
Jon Bernthal is still trying to wrap his head about the thought that it’s him.
“Oh man, it’s just a large honor to play the portion and that is all I can say about that,” Bernthal told ABC News. “I am quite thrilled and we haven’t started however, but I am extremely substantially searching forward to it.”
Bernthal, 38, who is probably finest identified for his role as Shane Walsh in the AMC drama “The Walking Dead” has not too long ago appeared in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” and “Mob City,” amongst other projects. He’s also raising three little young children with his wife of nearly five years, Erin Angle.
“I am living my dream everyday,” he continued. “My dream is to be with my little ones and my dogs and that is what I am going to do.”
Dogs have develop into a large priority for Bernthal, The Majority Project, a campaign devoted to eliminating the discrimination against pit bulls and their owners.
“I am a pit bull owner myself. I’ve noticed the prejudice these dogs have been facing for years,” he said. “I care a lot about the breed and I think it’s very misunderstood. I believe that every 10 or 15 years there a diff dog that is thrown into the limelight that is perceived of being aggressive and I think the notion of that is seriously ridiculous.”
“I’ll do what I can to make my dogs ambassadors of the breed and I will do what I can to fight against it.”
