It’s hard not to get slightly excited (easy) about The Matrix’s Trinity mixing it up in the MCU. And here it is…
Actress Carrie-Ann Moss has joined the cast of Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones, the 13 episode mini-series that follows Luke Cage later this year on Netflix.
Her character is described as “a no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica…if Jessica doesn’t completely alienate her first.”
Moss has signed on with Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), and Rachael Taylor (Patricia “Trish” Walker).
Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg said: “Throughout her career, Carrie-Anne has embodied a wide range of characters in a compelling and relatable way and I have no doubt she will bring that talent to A.K.A. Jessica Jones.”
“Carrie-Anne has proven her ability to play complex characters with deep and layered inner lives,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer/Marvel’s Head of Television.
“Her interaction with Jessica Jones will be one of the many highlights of the series.”
After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.
“Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
