Jessica Stroup and Tom Pelphrey Cast As Siblings in Iron Fist


Another day, another bit of Marvel’s Iron Fist casting news! Variety is reporting that the upcoming Netflix/Marvel superhero series has added 90210 and The Following veteran Jessica Stroup and Banshee’s Tom Pelphrey as siblings Joy and Ward Meachum, respectively. They’ll be recurring characters who clash with protagonist/billionaire/crime fighter Danny Rand, played by Finn Jones. Apparently, the sibs “have spent their lives building Rand Enterprises to its current standing in the world, only to have all their work put in jeopardy when Danny returns to claim his birthright.” That fits with the tiny bit of information we already have about Joy, which was a mysterious out-of-office note that Marvel released as the show’s first promo image. Given how pretty both performers are, you should expect a fair amount of intra-family erotic fanfic.
