David Tennant may have been the savior we all loved in Doctor Who, but Marvel has a different plan for him in AKA Jessica Jones.
“I’m so honored and excited by the prospect of David inhabiting this multifaceted character,” said Melissa Rosenberg, executive producer/showrunner. “He can deliver the most heart-wrenching moment to the driest of lines, and all points in between. He’ll make Kilgrave a truly original villain.”
“Anyone familiar with David’s work knows he brings an incredible level of dedication to any role he inhabits, a level we knew we would need from the man playing Kilgrave,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer/Marvel’s Head of Television. “While most know him for his roles as a hero, we can’t wait to unleash a whole new side of this talented actor.”
