INSURGENT Casting: Academy Award Winner 'Octavia Spencer' Will Play AMITY Leader 'Johanna Reyes'

Here is our first casting announcement for Divergent sequel, INSURGENT!

Octavia Spencer will officially play the "peaceful" AMITY faction spokesperson Johnna Reyes, a leader of sorts, though technically AMITY make all decisions as a group.

Octavia is best known for her role as Minny, the outspoken maid in the 2011 film The Help, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress, among other accolades.

What do we know about Johanna? Tris describes her as having a long scar running from her eye to her chin, rendering her blind in one eye and giving her a lisp when she speaks. She transferred from AMITY to CANDOR.

Another noted INSURGENT casting is the lesser known 'Richard Graff' who will be playing 'Aeneas', a character not featured in the books that we recall, so must have been created specifically for the movie adaptation.
