The awesome casting news for A.K.A. JESSICA JONES keeps rolling in! Per The Wrap, Carrie-Anne Moss (from The Matrix) has joined the cast as Harper. (Fun fact: This was a name from the audition video I linked to the other day.)
Here's the full article from The Wrap:
Carrie-Anne Moss has signed on for Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” on Netflix, TheWrap has learned exclusively.
After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones (the previously announced Krysten Ritter) is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.
Moss plays the no-nonsense Harper, a person in a position of authority who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica — if the titular character doesn’t completely alienate her first, that is.
In addition to Ritter and Moss, Rachael Taylor stars as Trish Walker — A.K.A. Hellcat, Jones’ best friend and “Doctor Who” star David Tennant joined the series as the villainous Killgrave.
“Jessica Jones” is the second of five planned Netflix-Marvel mins. The others are “Daredevil,” set to air first, “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist” and “The Defenders,” which will see the heroes of the previous four teaming up. The 13-episode series premieres later this year on the streaming service.
