Cast This: Jessica Jones

03.28.2014

Welcome back, Schmoes! Here we are in the third week of the new Marvel Netflix series casting. This week is Jessica Jones. Here are the previous castings: Daredevil and Luke Cage

Who is Jessica Jones? She may not be one of the most familiar in the Marvel Universe, but is more complex at times than any of her superhero counterparts. Another girl connected with Spider-Man, Jones shared the high school halls with Peter Parker who she had an enormous crush on. Unfortunately those days would be short lived when one day on a drive with her family, the car collided with a truck carrying radioactive materials. You can guess what happened thenÖ

Jones spent time in a coma then awoke with super strength, has the ability to fly, and is more resistant to harm than a regular human. When the character was first introduced in Brian Michael Bendisí Alias, she had withdrawn from the superhero world to become a private eye. This is where we see the depth of the character, who of all things just wants to better herself despite everything that happens in her life. First she spent time as the hero Jewel then became Power Woman after her marriage to Luke Cage who was Power Man.

Now itís time to speed up to who we think should play Jessica Jones. Iím not sure what age they will want the character, but I would at least guess under 35. The first lady that came to my mind was Ali Larter. I think sheís definitely got some hero potential. However, in the Alias series she looks more like Franka Potente in my opinion. Iím sure you guys can come up with some great ideas for Mrs. Jones.

Now, cast this!

RESULTS FROM PREVIOUS 'CAST THIS': Luke Cage:

1. Terry Crews 2. Michael Jai White 3. Billy Brown

So Crews took the win with White in a not so close second. There were other great ideas like third runner up, Billy Brown along with Chadwick Boseman and HOUSE OF CARDS Mahershala Ali. I think any of these guys would be a great Cage. I keep wondering if they will actually use any household names for this project. Maybe we should think about up and comers as well. That said, I can't wait to see the results on this week's column.

I think Adrianna Palicki, Michelle Rodriguez and A J Lee should all be tested for the role.

Alexandra Daddario

Only because of the slight resemblance in the second and fourth image. And her similar body type. And because I think she has potential to be a breakout star.

switch between two timelines

Georgie Henley for the high school days and Lily Allen as the grown up. Or Pink. She can act, does wire work and has things to say.

I think I have to go with cerealkiller182 and say Jewel Staite. I think she is underrated and deserves more roles than she gets. I also think she could pair well with any of the previously suggested actors for Luke Cage.

Never thought about her

but I'm going to go with Rose Leslie. She has a great look and has shown she can act on GoT. I like this choice! Way to think out of the box Schmoes...ideas like this are what make this article fun!

I'm now with whoever suggested Kristen Connolly off House of Cards. Good choice. Next to Terry Crews though maybe not so much?

i guess they wont stop

with all these b role female characters, just gonna keep pushing them even though no one really wants them. I mean they cant come up with one decent female character that is believable. I mean I understand the female characters get no name recognition, have a weak following and are not embraced by the female movie going circuit, but come on! Just bc women don't support female characters and they are a box office poison (heck just female driven action movies in general are huge losses) cant they

Thanks god its on netflix where viewership doenst really matter, bc on regular TV this show would be cancelled quicker than a 19th iteration of wonder woman.

Oh yes. There is such an overabundance of b role female character films & TV shows. I've lost count, there are so any.

How about Rose Leslie, she plays Ygritte on game of Thrones. She would make a very interesting Jessica Jones. If they are going serious she'd be good. If they are going comical a la the Amazing Spider-Man, then I'd go with someone else.

Bridgit Mendler - Marvel is a Disney property right? We don't see enough Mendler.

I like Jennifer Love Hewitt, but I think she is getting out of the age bracket for this character.

So obviously they've got to have good chemistry with whoever they pick for Luke Cage... And they gotta be able to pull off super heroine and noir detective alike.
I dunno. Emmanuelle Chriqui?

If she can act (I hope), A.J. Lee of WWE would be nice.
