Deadline.com reports that Jessica Biel has been cast in the role of 'Viper' in the upcoming film THE WOLVERINE from 20th Century Fox. The actress starred in Marvel's 2004's Blade: Trinity.
According to a description from Marvel, Viper "bounces between good and not so good and she holds some sway over Wolverine but is mostly a foe to the X-Men and Avengers."
Biel will soon be seen in Total Recall, co-starring Colin Farrell and Pascal Laugier’s The Tall Man, coming out August 31. Biel portrayed Mary Camden in the long-running family-drama series 7th Heaven. She has since starred in many films including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), Blade: Trinity (2004), I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007), The A-Team (2010), and New Year's Eve (2011).
