Jessica Jones Casting Sounds Like a Good Idea
The Netflix Marvel TV shows announced a year ago — short series featuring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage — have begun casting for their debut in 2015. First up, Krysten Ritter will play Jessica Jones in Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones. Ritter was most recently on TV as the lead in Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 and is also well-known for roles in Breaking Bad and Veronica Mars. I like watching her, and I think her sardonic style will suit the character. Jones is a former superhero who becomes a private investigator after suffering post-traumatic stress (in the comic series titled Alias).
Not as solid is the rumor that Luke Cage is to be played by Mike Colter (The Following, The Good Wife), but I hope it turns out to be true, since he’s good-looking and would be great casting.
