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.
