David Tennant

Former Doctor Who Time Lord David Tennant has been cast as a villain in A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series.

The Gracepoint actor will appear as Kilgrave in the 13-episode run of the series, according to Marvel, who describes the character as “an enigmatic figure from Jessica’s past” whose “reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero’s world.”

Of Tennant’s casting as Kilgrave, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (The Twilight Saga) said in a prepared statement that the actor “can deliver the most heart-wrenching moment to the driest of lines, and all points in between” and that “He’ll make Kilgrave a truly original villain.”

Krysten Ritter (Don’t Trust The B— In Apt 23) will play the title role, with Mike Colter as Luke Cage. The series, which will premiere later this year, is one of Marvel’s superhero titles for Netflix, which also includes Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders.

After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero 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.
