“Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” is rounding out its cast, with Carrie-Anne Moss aboard the Netflixseries, Marvel announced Monday.
Moss (“The Matrix”) will appear in a recurring role as a no-nonsense woman who could be a powerful ally to Jessica (Krysten Ritter), if she’s not completely alienated by her first. In addition to Ritter as the title character, the actress joins Rachael Taylor, who will play Jessica’s best friend, Trish Walker; David Tennant, who’s been cast as villain Kilgrave; and Mike Colter, as Luke Cage.
The 13-episode Netflix original series, produced with Disney’s Marvel Studios, will follow Jessica as she rebuilds her personal life and detective career after a short-lived stint as a superhero.
“Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” will debut on Netflix later this year, following “Marvel’s Daredevil,” which premieres April 10.
