Making J August Richards Luke Cage is just going to lead to endless posts and speculation about which former Joss Whedon show actors would play Marvel characters again.
Hasn't that been going on since the show was announced anyway?
And I, for one, look forward to it. Whedon has always surrounded himself with great talent, with both actors that he has worked with before, and new actors. I doubt that there will be any "stunt casting". If he re-uses actors, it's probably because he knows they're good, can do the job, and that they work well together.
For that matter, a lot of TV/Film makers tend to re-use the same talent. How many times has Tim Burton worked with Johnny Depp?
