Marvel Casts Its Jessica Jones!

December 4th, 2014 by Andrew McCarroll Comments



Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series Jessica Jones has found its lead actress. Deadline reports that “Breaking Bad” and “Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23″ actress Krysten Ritter has been cast in the role. Ritter is perhaps best known for playing Jessie’s girlfriend Jane in Breaking Bad.

They also reveal that Halo: Nightfall‘s Mike Colter is the top choice for the role of her husband, Luke Cage, who will appear in seven of the planned thirteen “Jessica Jones” episodes.

The series will focus on retired superhero Jessica Jones hanging up her tights and opening her own detective agency.

“Jessica Jones” is the second of five Netflix shows Marvel will roll out starting next year with “Marvel’s Daredevil.” Following the two will be both “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist,” with all four leading into a “Defenders” mini-series.

Andrew McCarroll never quite built on the dizzying career heights that he hit at 6 years old, when as a member of the “Ghostbusters” he would charge his neighbours to remove any unwanted spectres. Now retired from slaying spooks, he spends his time obsessing over superheroes (especially Batman) and devouring shows like Dexter, Game of Thrones and Archer in a manner that would make Galactus proud.
