The Gracepoint star has just been announced as the villain in Netflix‘s gritty upcoming series AKA Jessica Jones!

David will officially be haunting Krysten Ritter‘s nightmares as Kilgrave! Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg said:

“I’m so honored and excited by the prospect of David inhabiting this multifaceted character. He can deliver the most heart-wrenching moment to the driest of lines, and all points in between. He’ll make Kilgrave a truly original villain.”

If that name sounds overly ominous to you, it should!

In the comics, the villain — also known as Purple Man — is responsible for the tragic events that end Jessica’s superhero career before it even begins!

We can’t wait to see David’s take!
