Mike Colter will play the role in "Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones," the companies announced jointly on Monday.
"Mike embodies the strength, edge and depth of Luke Cage," Executive Producer/Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg said in a statement. "We're excited to have him bring this iconic Marvel character to life."
The actor will star opposite Krysten Ritter, who will play the title role.
The 13-episode series will premiere on Netflix in 2015, following "Marvel's Daredevil."
Mike currently plays drug lord/Florrick, Agos & Associates client Lemond Bishop on CBS' "The Good Wife."
