Marvel has cast Carrie-Anne Moss in A.K.A. Jessica Jones. Moss is best known for her role as Trinity in The Matrix trilogy (A.K.A. Ryan Garcia’s favorite movie of all time….don’t hold that against him).
According to Marvel:
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. Moss plays a no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica…if Jessica doesn’t completely alienate her first.
No-nonsense woman, eh? Well that just about sums up the previous roles Moss has played. She will star opposite Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), and Rachael Taylor (Patricia “Trish” Walker) in the Netflix original series. “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” was developed by Executive Producer/Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg.
