David Tennant Joins Cast of Marvel/Netflix’s ‘Jessica Jones’


Calling all Doctor Who fans! It has been announced that David Tennant, the Tenth Doctor (!!!) will be joining the cast of A.K.A. Jessica Jones, a Netflix/Marvel original series starring Krysten Ritter. Isn’t this exciting!?

So, who is Tennant playing? He’s a villain. Yes, a villain. He’ll be starring as Zebediah Killgrave, aka The Purple Man. Killgrave, someone Jessica thought was only a part of her past, will be arriving to shake things up.

For some background, the comic version of Killgrave can release pheromones that enable him the power of mind control so long as he is nearby. He also has the ability to quickly heal from injuries and is, well, purple (hence the nickname). We’re not sure how close the Netflix version of Killgrave will resemble the comic version.

A.K.A. Jessica Jones is slated for a 13-episode run. It premieres later this year. Jessica Jones is the second upcoming Marvel series on Netflix, following Daredevil.
