Deadline reports the Breaking Bad actress has landed the role of Jessica Jones in the upcoming Marvel Netflix series. The series, spearheaded by Melisa Rosenbaum, will centers on Jessica Jones , a superhero suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, which leads to her hanging up her costume and opening her own detective agency, where she ends up helping people and assisting other superheroes.
Additionally, Deadline also reports that The Following‘s Mike Colter is believed to be the choice for the male lead of Luke Cage, who will debut in the Jessica Jones series before taking up his own show, also exclusive to Netflix.
This is a rather interesting choice in casting, given Ritter's background in comedy, but we figure if Chris Pratt could pull it off for Guardians of the Galaxy, Ritter is probably also up for the challenge.
More ion as it becomes available.
