Onetime Matrix prisoner Carrie-Anne Moss is the latest addition to Netflix’s AKA Jessica Jones series — as either the titular Marvel character’s dream come true, or her worst nightmare.
As the 13-episode series picks up, after a tragic ending to her short-lived superhero stint, Jessica Jones (played by Apartment 23‘s 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.
As first reported by TheWrap.com, Moss will play a no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica… if Jessica doesn’t completely alienate her first.
Moss — whose previous TV credits include CBS’ Vegas and NBC’s Chuck — joins a cast that also includes Doctor Who’s David Tennant (as the villain Kilgrave), The Good Wife‘s Mike Colter (playing Luke Cage) and Rachael Taylor (as Jessica’s BFF “Trish” Walker).
Marvel’s AKA Jessica Jones will premiere sometime in 2015.
