Marvel and Netflix have added a familiar face to the cast of Iron Fist today, as Jessica Jones star Carrie-Anne Moss will be reprising her role of Jeri Hogarth. This isn’t terribly surprising, given that she also showed up in Daredevil‘s second season, but it’s still exciting news as it’s yet another connection between the shows that fans can look forward to seeing.
Not much is known about how Hogarth will factor into the plot, but apparently she’ll be helping out Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist when he returns to New York.
“Carrie-Anne has fast become a fan-favorite part of our street level saga, and we share our viewers’ excitement in bringing her into ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist,’” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “As Marvel fans know, Hogarth in the comics plays a critical role in the life of Danny Rand so it seems only fitting that Carrie-Anne join in.”
“Danny Rand lives in the highest stratosphere of New York’s business society and he’s going to need a ruthless lawyer to help him navigate this alien world,” said Executive Producer and Showrunner, Scott Buck. “I’m very happy to have the opportunity to bring Carrie-Ann Moss as Jeri Hogarth into ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist.’”
Moss will join a cast that already includes Finn Jones as the titular hero, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum and Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum. Production is currently underway on the show but unfortunately, we don’t have a premiere date just yet. With everything coming together rather quickly though, expect to hear more soon.
