The search for the actress who will play Jessica Jones on Marvel’s straight-to-series eponymous Netflix drama may just be over now.
Krysten Ritter (the upcoming Big Eyes, TV’s Don’t Trust the B---- in Apt. 23) is said to have landed the highly coveted title part on the show, which is coming to the streamer...uh...soon.
Marvel and Netflix, as you may know, have partnered to bring us at least four new 13-ep-each shows, including the in-the-works Daredevil, which is tentatively set to debut next year.
When confirmed, Ritter will officially be taking on the role of a superhero suffering from PTSD, which leads her to call it quits and to open her own detective agency, from which she ends up being of assistance to others, including other superheroes.
Mike Colter (TV’s The Good Wife) is the frontrunner to portray Luke Cage, the male-lead part on the show and the subject of a separate one as well. (A series focusing on Iron Fist is also being developed.)
