OMG you guys!  Jeff Daniels has joined ‘Allegiant PArt 1 and Part 2’ as David.  Fans of the book would remember David, as the head leader of the Bureau of Genetic Welfare.  We finally have a face to loathe!

Variety was the one to break the news:

Jeff Daniels  is in final negotiations to join the last movies in Lionsgate’s “Divergent” franchise.

The actor would appear in “Allegiant Part 1″ and “Allegiant Part 2″ in the role of the leader of the Bureau of Genetic Welfare.

Robert Schwentke, who directed “Insurgent,” will begin shooting “Part 1″ in May. Producers are Doug Wick, Lucy Fisher and Pouya Shahbazian.

The four-film franchise is based on the Veronica Roth trilogy about the warfare among five factions in a post-apocalyptic society that emerges from the ruins of Chicago.  The two films that have already been released have grossed over $550 million worldwide. “Allegiant Part 1″ will be released on March 18, and “Allegiant Part 2″ will open a year later.

What do you think of the casting? I love it!  I think there’s going to be more casting news in the near future!
