Suki Waterhouse and Jonny Weston Join Cast of Insurgent (VIDEO)
Two new faces are about to jump right into the world of “Divergent!”
MTV is reporting that “Insurgent” has added two new actors to the cast — which is excellent timing due to the fact that filming is about to begin in Atlanta. Suki Waterhouse and Jonny Weston are reportedly set to join the latest young adult book-to-movie franchise - which is based on Veronica Roth’s bestselling series.
Suki, who we know as the 22-year-old girlfriend of Bradley Cooper, is set to play Marlene, another member of the Dauntless faction. She is most known for her modeling, but she has had a few acting parts including roles in “Pusher” and the “Material Girls” TV series.
There aren’t a lot of details about Jonny’s role yet — he’s still in final negotiations for the role. But we imagine if everything goes well we will have an official announcement soon. The one character we are still waiting to hear about in casting would be Uriah. Jonny could be a possible candidate for the role — if the studio decided to cast against race. We’ll just have to wait and see.
The two join the rest of the returning cast as well as Octavia Spencer, also recently added to the cast list, who is set to play Johanna, the peaceful leader of the Amity faction.
