Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’ Netflix Series Adds Three to Cast

Netflix and Marvel’s “A.K.A Jessica Jones” has added three cast members for its upcoming season, Marvel announced Thursday.

Eka Darville (“The Originals”) plays Malcolm, a neighbor of Jessica’s whose own journey will intertwine with her quest in a surprising way. Erin Moriarty (“The Kings of Summer”) plays Hope, a young girl who becomes a client of Alias Investigations. Wil Traval (“Red Widow”) plays an NYPD cop who takes “protect and serve” very seriously.

The trio join a cast that includes Krysten Ritter as the titular heroine; Mike Colter as Luke Cage; David Tennant as the villainous Kilgrave; Rachael Taylor as Jessica’s best friend Trish; and Carrie-Anne Moss as a no-nonsense ally.

After a tragic ending to her short-lived superhero 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.

The 13-episode series premieres on Netflix in 2015. Marvel’s “Daredevil” series will make its Netflix debut on April 10.
