Bill Pullman Talks ‘Independence Day 2’

Bill Pullman, who played President Thomas J. Whitmore in the original Independence Day, isn’t sure if he will be back for the rumored sequel. In a recent interview he said, “Somebody has been sending me links to conversations Roland’s (the director) been having about it and what ideas they have for it. I haven’t talked to him about it but it’s a complicated legal thing getting involved with creative control and it’s an expensive movie. I don’t know if it’s a role I’ll revisit, because, in term limits, I think we’ve gone beyond 12 years – but maybe there’s some side of it that he’s angling. He works with writers and they try to find the best idea and I’ve heard a couple of scenarios that would include me and some that wouldn’t so I can’t control it so I don’t think about it.”
