Jon Bernthal talks playing the Punisher in Season 2 of Dardevil for the first time while promoting The Majority Project, a foundation aimed at bringing awareness to Pit Bulls.

"Oh man, it's just a huge honor to play the part and that's all I can say about that," Bernthal told ABC News regarding Frank Castle. "I'm very thrilled and we haven't started yet, but I'm very much looking forward to it."

Bernthal is probably best known for playing Shane in The Walking Dead, but also has had roles on Wolf Of Wall Street and Fury. He also happens to be a Pit Bull owner and is featured in the promo video (below) for

"I'm living my dream everyday," Bernthal added. "My dream is to be with my kids and my dogs and that's what I'm going to do. I'm a pit bull owner myself. I've seen the prejudice these dogs have been facing for years. I care a lot about the breed and I believe it's very misunderstood. I think that every 10 or 15 years there a diff dog that's thrown into the limelight that's perceived of being aggressive and I think the notion of that is really ridiculous.

"I'll do what I can to make my dogs ambassadors of the breed and I'll do what I can to fight against it."

"Daredevil" Season 2 is currently in development and will be released next year on Netflix.
