J.R. Ramirez has joined the cast of the second season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones as a series regular. Ramirez, who has appeared on Power and Arrow, as Oscar, a devoted single father who moves into Jessica’s (Krysten Ritter) 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.
Executive producer Melissa Rosenberg said of the casting:
“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.”
Marvel’s Jessica Jones is expected to return in 2018.
