The Good Wife’s Mike Colter to Play Luke Cage, Make Googly Eyes at Krysten Ritter

After weeks of rumors, The Good Wife’s Mike Colter has indeed signed on to play Marvel superhero Luke Cage in Netflix’s upcoming Jessica Jones series. He’ll be the love interest there before eventually headlining a series of his own; when that’s up, Cage will join Jones and Daredevil in a Defenders miniseries. (Marvel: Where even the spinoffs have their own spinoffs!) Krysten Ritter was reportedly cast as Jones due to her chemistry with Colter, so it’s probably good for everyone that this deal went through.
