Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth and Jessie Usher have officially join the cast of Independence Day 2! Director Roland Emmerich has just taken to Facebook to announce the exciting reveal of 3 of the film's actors! As expected, Jeff Goldblum will reprise his role from the original film, which leaves us assuming that Liam Hemsworth plays the boyfriend and "hotshot pilot" to Patricia Whitmore, the President's daughter, who is now all grown up - 20 years later. Of course, we can also assume that Jessie Usher will have some ties to Will Smith's character - potentially his son, which was hinted at in earlier reports surrounding Independence Day 2's character breakdown and plot.
"First you strategically position your pieces, and when the time is right, you strike.” Excited to officially announce Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum as the next two pieces of the Independence Day sequel!
Excited to officially announce that Jessie Usher will be joining the cast for the sequel of Independence Day!
Trivia: My producing partner Harald Kloser noticed Jessie in between sets of pushups at the gym and gave him an audition. As they say, the rest is history!
Those were the official announcements just made by Roland Emmerich on his own Facebook page.
