If you saw the previews for next week's episode, you'll know that Blade's dad will be making an appearance in the form of a flashback. The actor who'll be playing the Daywalker's father is Colin Lawrence and he's done an interview with Starry Constellation Magazine.
From the interview:
Q)What made you want to be a part of the show?
A) There is not any man, woman or child that I know that wouldn't want to be a part of a comic book. You can't pass that up! Truth be told, my favorite comic book was Teen Titan. That was the one I really loved. I think it's amazing just being a part of Marvel comics and getting to be a part of a project gone to film that is now being turned in to a TV series. I think, if you can't play Blade, then you can sure play his daddy! I think that's great because who wouldn't want to be the father to a super hero? It's just a great opportunity and I am happy to be a part of it.
As you can see, he does talk about the show, though be warned that some of what he says could be considered spoilers (though nothing is really given away other than what he will be doing in the episode). Fans of his or of the show should head on over and read the full interview
