NYCC: Carrie-Anne Moss' "Jessica Jones" Role Revealed

More than eight months after Carrie-Anne Moss was cast in Netflix's "Jessica Jones," we now know who the "Matrix" veteran will play.

Today at New York Comic Con, Marvel's Head of Television Jeph Loeb revealed Moss portrays a gender-swapped version of Jeryn Hogarth, a longtime ally of Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist.

Introduced by Marvel Comics in 1976, Hogarth is a brilliant lawyer and businessman who worked for Danny's father Wendall Rand. He's long served as legal counsel for Danny, and was the business manager and part owner of Heroes for Hire.

Although details of the role weren't revealed this afternoon at the Marvel/Netflix presentation, Moss said that with "every one of these scripts, at some point I went 'Oh, my God, I can't believe that just happened.' It's rare for me because I read a lot of scripts and I'm rarely surprised. The writing is impeccable."

Also starring Krysten Ritter, David Tennant, Mike Colter and Rachael Taylor, "Jessica Jones" premieres Nov. 20 on Netflix.
