Krysten Ritter in 2014 shared the screen with renowned actress Amy Adams in the critically acclaimed movie "Big Eyes" and in 2015 the actress will be co-starring in the Marvel Comic project "Jessica Jones", a much different tv project. Her decision to star in the Marvel Comic project has some entertainment fans wondering why she took on this role when it is very likely that filmmakers of serious dramatic projects were pursuing her as a feature actress.
Fans of the talented actress are excited at the prospect of her being the lead character in an action-adventure show but some fans are also confused about the move to action-adventure at this stage of her career. Her performance in "Big Eyes" showed that she has big screen dramatic leading lady talent while in contrast her starring role in the action-adventure "Jessica Jones" tv show is unchartered territory for her.
Taking risks is part of the DNA of most successful actors as they pursue roles that challenge them and can possibly heighten their profile which partly explains the decision to take on the Marvel Comic role of Jessica Jones in the tv show of the same name.
However, Krysten Ritter had also shown in her performance as DeeAnn in the box office success "Big Eyes" that she has impressive dramatic acting range and some fans anticipated she would capitalize on the momentum gained from her performance to pursue other dramatic roles on the big screen.
Her committing herself to the Marvel comic character Jessica Jones for shows that will begin filming in 2016 is quite frankly a move that has left some entertainment fans on social media surprised with her choice of this path for her career.
Is Krysten Ritter following the Robert Downey Jr. "Iron Man" franchise blueprint and focusing on comic book characters to open doors for other projects? No one knows the answer but one thing that is evident is that Krysten Ritter enjoys keeping her fans guessing about her next moves.
