Zero Dark Thirty’s Jason Clarke to Star in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Actor Jason Clarke attends the 2013 National Board Of Review Awards Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street on January 8, 2013 in New York City.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Zero Dark Thirty’s main torturer Jason Clarke has signed on to star in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Since much of the plot is still under wraps, we aren’t certain who he’ll be playing in the Matt Reeves–directed sequel. Generally, the film is supposed to center on both Caesar’s struggle as king of the smart apes and a group of scientists who are trying to survive in this crazy monkey world. If we had to guess, Clarke will probably play a human person.
