Filmmaker Roland Emmerich has confirmed that both original “Independence Day” stars Bill Pullman and Judd Hirsch are slated to return for the movie’s upcoming sequel.
Hirsch will reprise his role as Julius Levinson, the cantankerous father of Jeff Goldblum’s David Levinson who is also returning. Pullman will play the now former U.S. President Thomas J. Whitmore.
The pair join a cast that also includes Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Travis Tope, Joey King, and returning champs Vivica A. Fox and Brent Spiner.
