In February, Marvel announced that The Matrix star Carrie-Anne Moss had been added to the cast of Jessica Jones they made no mention who she was playing in the Netflix series, but today at New York Comic Con they finally let the cat out of the bag.
Marvel Head of Television Jeph Loeb announced that Moss is playing Jeryn Hogarth. The character should be familiar to Marvel Comics fans as he, yes he, is a close ally of Danny Rand, better known as Iron Fist. He's a lawyer that worked for Danny's father Wendell Rand and when he passed away Jeryn looked after Danny and the family's estate. He provided Danny and his friend/partner Luke Cage with legal and business advice for their Heroes for Hire team.
Hogarth also played a vital role in Matt Fraction's highly-praised The Immortal Iron Fist series.

Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of PTSD, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need... especially if they're willing to cut her a check.
Marvel's Jessica Jones will debut later this year on Netflix.
