Pilot News: Thor's Jaimie Alexander to Lead Greg Berlanti's Blindspot at NBC

Jaimie Alexander Blindspot

Jaimie Alexander has a knack for losing her memory.

The Thor actress is set to star in NBC’s upcoming drama pilot Blindspot, the network announced Tuesday.

Produced by Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash), Blindspot will star Alexander as a beautiful woman, with no memories of her past, who is found naked in Times Square with her body fully covered in intricate tattoos.

Her discovery sets off a vast and complex mystery that immediately ignites the attention of the FBI, who begin to follow the road map on her body to reveal a larger conspiracy of crime, while bringing her closer to discovering the truth about her identity.

Alexander will also deal with memory loss when her Lady Sif returns to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on March 10, with no recollection of Thor.

The actress’ small-screen credits also include Covert Affairs and Nurse Jackie, and she’ll next appear in HBO’s upcoming dark comedy The Brink.

    Although this is interesting, isn’t it a copy of Memento…very similar

  2. LaPiquante says:

    Sounds like a similar beginning to the one her character in Kyle XY had. I hope it gets picked up. Could be fun!

    Yay Jaimie! Sounds like a greatshow! ……. “The actress’ small-screen credits also include Covert Affairs and Nurse Jackie” not to mention KYLE XY, where she was a lead character!

  4. Carla Krae says:

    Greg Berlanti is a very busy dude.

  5. Thank God they added the word ‘beautiful’ to the synopsis!

  6. B says:

    really hope this one makes it to series!

  7. Lizo says:

    Oh how wonderful for her! I’m really happy she’s landed a leading role; she added so much depth to a character that was arguably quite flat in the original script. Plus with Berlanti running the show, it’s bound to be great.

  8. Joey Padron says:

    Glad she’s returning to TV full time.

    You had me at “…[Alexander] who is found naked…”

    I haven’t been paying attention to Marvel’s movie phases/release planning. So when is the next Thor suppose to be out? Didn’t Marvel signed her up for sequels which may restrict her potentially signing on as main cast of TVs show especially one going to be produces by Warner Bros? Mind boggle.

    So..its John Doe meets Prison Break. I think at this point its ok for Hollywood to just come right out and admit they’ve no original thoughts or ideas anymore.

  12. Ashley says:

    Excited for this. I love Jaimie. I wish Marvel would put her in movies more, but if I can’t get more Sif, I’ll be happy to get more of Jaimie in general. Plus, I love Berlanti’s shows.

  13. Alexa says:

    She is amazing. I would watch the show just for her
