Jeff Daniels onboard with Divergent: Allegiant 1 & 2

The third/fourth films in the Divergent trilogy have landed Jeff Daniels on villain duties.

Daniels, best known for playing Harry Dunne in Dumb and Dumber and Will McAvoy in The Newsroom, has been lined up to play chief antagonist David in the two-parter final part. The character is head of the villainous Bureau, the manipulative organisation ruling over post-apocalyptic Chicago and clandestinely directing the lives of its citizens.

Following on from Mockingjay, Breaking Dawn and Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, for some reason (money?) the last book in the series, Allegiant, has been stretched into two films. Given complaints about the lack of pace and tons of filler in Mockingjay, it remains to be seen if there’s enough material in the book to fill two movies, but we’ll have to see.

I for one will be unhappy if there’s no Newsroom references in it.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
