Thanks, @RipperM for setting up this sub.
I just wanted to talk briefly about D'Onofrio's performance so far. I'm just up to episode 10 right now, and I'm just totally blown away. I know he's an "actor's actor," and while he's been in things I didn't particularly like, his acting was always a highlight.
I'll admit, he took my by surprise. When we first see him, he first appears very stiff, and I was not sure what was going on. But then Fisk begins to take shape... he is stiff. He's like a cornered wild animal: not wanting to lash out but struggling to control it. He's permanently damaged, and his lonely daily routine is his way of trying to suppress the emotions that threaten to overwhelm him. I found myself feeling really sorry for him, and sympathizing with the enormous stresses his position puts him under.
I remember James Gandolfini talking about Tony Soprano, and becoming very defensive when his character was described by the interviewer as a moral monster. Both Gandolfini and D'Onofrio seem to belong to the school of acting that says that you have to find something to defend about the characters you play, because if you hate your character you won't portray him well. The writing of Daredevil provided D'Onofrio that opportunity, but wow, has he really taken it and made the very best of it. He has taken this material and elevated it, and I can't think of a better thing to say about an actor.
