Yesterday, we learned that Insurgent, Summit Entertainment’s sequel to its hit dystopian action/romance Divergent, had gained Naomi Watts in the pivotal role of Evelyn, a character who will play a major part in both Insurgent and its two sequels, Allegiant – Part 1 and Allegiant – Part 2. Now, we’re hearing that Insurgent has snagged another talented actor to play a key character, with the news that Daniel Dae Kim has come aboard as Jack Kang.

In the Divergent franchise, based on the trilogy by Veronica Roth, Kang is a representative of Candor, one of the five factions present in the series’ future Chicago. The other factions include Erudite (intelligence), Dauntless (bravery), Abnegation (selflessness) and Amity (peacefulness). Residents of Candor display the trait of honesty. In Insurgent, Kang comes into contact with Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley), Four (Theo James) and their allies as they flee the ruthless Erudite leader Jeanine Matthews »
