While Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones is getting set to return to the small screen in merely a matter of weeks in Marvel’s The Defenders, the second season of Jessica’s solo series has brought in another new addition.
As announced by Marvel, J.R. Ramirez has joined the show in the role of Oscar. Ramirez will be familiar to genre fans for playing “Wildcat” Ted Grant in The CW’s Arrow. As for Oscar, he’s a character described as “a devoted single father who moves into Jessica’s building as the new superintendent. While his young son becomes enamored with Jessica and her powers, Oscar keeps his distance, worrying about the trouble that follows people like her.”
On this news, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg said, “J.R. is an incredible addition to our cast, bringing complex and subtle emotion and humor. He exudes warmth, edge and intelligence, and blends perfectly with our tone.”
As well as Ramirez, the other new additions for Season 2 of Marvel’s Jessica Jones so far are Janet McTeer and Leah Gibson.
Up next for Jessica, though, is teaming with Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage and Finn Jones’ Iron Fist in Marvel’s The Defenders, which lands on Netflix on August 18th.
