Cassie’s Parents and Teacup Cast for THE 5TH WAVE Movie

Official casting was announced on The 5th Wave Facebook page earlier today and we now know who’s going to be playing Cassie’s parents, as well as the little spitfire nicknamed Teacup!


Ron Livingston was first on the big screen in a bit part in a movie called Swingers before gaining pop culture status in the movie Office Space.  He’s run through several successful TV shows, including his latest stint in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.  He was last seen on the big screen playing father to the haunted Perron girls in The Conjuring.  He’ll be playing Cassie and Sammy Sullivan’s father.


Sons of Anarchy fans should be familiar with Maggie Siff, as she played Tara Knowles on the FX crime drama series.  Her character is probably quite a bit more toned down in this movie as she plays Cassie and Sammy’s mother.


This will be Talitha Bateman‘s feature film debut.  She did a few episodes in Hart of Dixie, and a few uncredited spots in other shows.  We’re hoping good things for this girl.

The 5th Wave is currently in production and is scheduled to be released in theaters January 29, 2016.
