David Tennant to Play Villain in Netflix’s Jessica Jones

Continuing his tradition of playing characters with extremely idiosyncratic names, David Tennant is going to play the Purple Man, a villain whose main character trait is that he is purple, for Netflix’s upcoming superhero series A.K.A. Jessica Jones. Besides being purple, Purple Man possesses the power to control others’ thoughts, which he most often uses to stop people from giggling at the image of a man whose skin and hair are entirely purple. America’s non-racist people — the ones who always say that they don’t mind if someone’s skin is black, white, green, or purple — have applauded the casting. As has Prince.
