Variety reports that Keri Russell has signed on to join the cast of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. She’ll be joining Jason Clarke, Kodi-Smit McPhee, Gary Oldman, and, of course, Andy Serkis. No word on what her role will be, but we can only presume it’ll involve teaching gorillas how to do passable Russian accents.
