Marvel Eyes ‘Breaking Bad’ Star For ‘Jessica Jones’
Marvel and Netflix’s Defenders master plan is slowly but surely coming into the place. “Daredevil,” the first of four miniseries that will lead to a crossover event, is well into filming, and now actresses are testing for the lead role of the second, “Jessica Jones.”
According to Deadline, Krysten Ritter (“Breaking Bad”), Alexandra Daddario (“True Detective”), Teresa Palmer (“Warm Bodies”), and Jessica De Gouw (“Arrow”) are all testing for the role of Jessica Jones, a former superhero who suffers from PTSD and starts a private detective business.
In addition to that impressive list of actresses, there are already two names floating around for Luke Cage, who will appear in some of “Jessica Jones” before starring in his own series. Those actors are Lance Gross (“Crisis”) and Mike Colter (“The Following”).
There’s still no word on when “Daredevil” will premiere on Netflix or when “Jessica Jones” will go into production, but it’s very exciting to see this ambitious plan come together.
