Who Knew??

Vincent D' Onofrio was the garage mechanic in the great Adventures in Babysitting AND the villainous Kingpin in the greater Daredevil miniseries? Now if that isn't a range for an actor then I don't know what is.

Likely the actor with the most extensive filmography of the cast, D’Onofrio’s work has ranged from an iconic turn in Full Metal Jacket (out the same year as Adventures in Babysitting) to working with directors such as Kathryn Bigelow and Tim Burton, and being nominated for an Emmy for his television work. The man who embodied Thor on the big screen before Chris Hemsworth was in pre-school even made it into the Marvel Cinematic Universe this past year in Netflix’s Daredevil as Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, delivering a larger than life performance. D’Onofrio also popped up this summer in Jurassic World and he’ll appear in Antoine Fuqua’s take on The Magnificent Seven in 2016.

Oooooo look at that blonde mullet, LOL! Seriously, he's an amazing actor. Glad to see he's back acting again.
