Vincent D'Onofrio Goes From Hitman To Crime Boss In New TV Series 'Godfather Of Harlem'

Playing men of power is nothing new for Vincent D'Onofrio, who continues to portray Wilson Fisk (aka the Kingpin) on the Marvel Netflix superhero series Daredevil, and the Wizard of Oz himself in the short-lived, dramatic NBC fantasy show Emerald City. Well, the actor is ready to take on another such role — though grounded considerably more than the others in reality — this time starring opposite Forest Whitaker on the Epix television true crime series Godfather of Harlem. Given a straight to series order by the network, the show sees Vincent as Vincent "Chin" Gigante, a former boxer who few take seriously... but should. He appears dimwitted, but his mind is always working — to the point where he feigns insanity to avoid prosecution, and the series will chart his rise in the Genovese crime family as a hitman to, ultimately, boss of the family.
