Bill Pullman and Judd Hirsch Are Back for INDEPENDENCE DAY 2!
One of the actors I was really hoping to see come back in Independence Day 2 has been confirmed! Bill Pullman will reprise his role as former President Whitmore in the sequel. Pullman has said in the past that he would love to be a part of the sequel if it happened, and it’s good to know that he’ll actually be back.
It was also reported that Judd Hirsch will be reprising his role as Julius Levinson, the father of Jeff Goldblum’s character David. Goldblum is set to return alongside series newcomers Liam Hemsworth and Jessie Usher, who is going to play the son of the Will Smith character from the first film. Brent Spiner and Vivica A. Fox are also coming back to reprise their roles. I guess Smith is the only one who is too good to come back to the franchise that launched his movie career.
Roland Emmerich is returning to direct, and the movie is set to be released on June 24th, 2016, almost 20 years after the original film hit theaters July 3rd, 1996.
