A League of Their Own and The Good Place Star D'Arcy Carden Wants To Join Marvel
D'Arcy Carden is best known for playing Janet, the fan-favorite not-a-robot on The Good Place, which earned her an Emmy nomination back in 2020. Last year, Carden returned to TV in Prime Video's A League of Their Own series, and you can currently catch her in the new romantic comedy, Shotgun Wedding. Carden recently had a chat with IndieWire about the new movie and revealed she's interested in another role: working with Marvel Studios.
"There was an episode of The Good Place where I got to do a 10-minute fight scene and I worked with this amazing stuntman, a legendary stunt guy named Jeff Amato, and that was my first real dive into stunts where I was like, 'I love this.' And then we got to do a ton of stunts on A League of Their Own, working with this amazing stunt team. The more, the better. I would be very, very thrilled to do more of that. Marvel, I'm waiting!"
