So just like that, Independence Day 2 (2016) casts Jeff Goldblum, Jessie Usher and Liam Hemsworth for the Independence Day Sequel. Director Roland Emmerich seems to be setting the gears in motion fast trying to make the June 24, 2015 release date for Independence Day 2. This is the sequel to the Summer 1996 hit way back to Independence Day (1996). I have found memories of Will Smith punching the alien in the face… Smith was not mentioned in the casting to return however. Jessie Usher plays the son of Captain Steven Hiller (Will Smith), Liam Hemsworth is somehow related to President Whitmore (Bill Pullman) while Jeff Goldblum returns as David Levinson.
