Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones Casts Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty and Wil Traval


Marvel announced today that they have added a trio of actors to the cast of the forthcoming Netflix seris A.K.A. Jessica Jones, a loose adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos' acclaimed Alias.

Eka Darville plays Malcolm, a neighbor of Jessica’s whose own journey will intertwine with her quest in a surprising way.

“Eka brings such depth, humor and nuanced performance to the characters he plays, which makes him the perfect person to portray Malcolm,” says Executive Producer Melissa Rosenberg. “I’m looking forward to seeing what he will bring to this role."

Erin Moriarty plays Hope, a young girl who becomes a client of Alias Investigations.

“In Erin I immediately recognized an incredibly talented, mature and complex actress, who brings myriad levels to every scene,” explained Rosenberg. “She has an incredible career in front of her and I'm delighted we have someone of her caliber for this important role.”

Wil Traval plays an NYPD cop who takes “protect and serve” very seriously.

“Wil Traval is a very emotionally courageous actor, able be profoundly vulnerable, or venal, or funny or fierce,” remarked Rosenberg. “I've been searching for an opportunity to work with both Erin and Wil again, and am excited to see them in these roles.”

“All three of these enormously talented actors bring even more layers of depth and nuance to Jessica’s world,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer/Marvel’s Head of Television. “Together they help flesh out what is already a phenomenal cast in a series we believe will be truly remarkable.”

Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Rachael Taylor (Patricia “Trish” Walker), and Carrie-Anne Moss also star in the Netflix original series. “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” was developed by Executive Producer/Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg.

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.

"Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones" is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

A.K.A. Jessica Jones stars Krysten Ritter in the title role, and will tie into other Netflix/Marvel collaborations like Marvel's Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, ultimately building to Marvel's The Defenders. The 13-episode series will premiere on Netflix in 2015.
