Jessica Jones now has her closest friend, Patricia “Trish” Walker (also known as Hellcat), cast in the new Netflix series, A.K.A Jessica Jones.
The lucky lady taking on the role is Grey’s Anatomy‘s Rachael Taylor.

She helps Jessica Jones solve the most dangerous case of her career as a detective.
Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), David Tennant (Kilgrave), and Mike Colter (Luke Cage), are also on board for A.K.A. Jessica Jones.
The show was developed by Executive Producer Melissa Rosenberg of Dexter fame.
She said of Rachael Taylor, “The character is a star and a powerhouse, and required an actress who is both. Rachael is all that and more!”
Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer of A.K.A. Jessica Jones and Marvel’s Head of Television, said, “Rachael’s ability to embody a character that must balance both the darker and lighter elements of our series will provide a perfect emotional anchor for Jessica Jones.”
He added, “Rachael blew us away with her grounded, humanizing take on Trish, adding yet another layer to the complex, emotional story we’re telling with this series.”
A.K.A. Jessica Jones will begin running on Netflix beginning in 2015.
That is exciting news for Marvel fans!
