Joel David Moore Will Reappear In Planned Sequels To Avatar

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story actor Joel David Moore will reprise his role as Norm Spellman in Avatar 2 and additional sequels.

Over the course of his prolific career, Moore has appeared in a wide variety of comedies and dramas on big and small screens alike. Getting his start in 1996’s Foxfire, the actor has since played roles in Grandma’s Boy, American Hustle, Beyond a Reasonable Doubt, and CBGB. On television, he is probably most recognizable for his recurring role as Colin Fisher on the Fox crime procedural Bones.

Moore is not the only actor from the original 2009 film set to return for the planned sequel. Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, and Sigourney Weaver have all committed to reprising their respective characters, although it is unclear if they will continue to do so after Avatar 2.

Deadline, the source of this story, shares the following information about the upcoming follow-ups:

Not much is known about the sequel film’s plot, other than it takes place underwater. Fox has slotted the remaining sequels during the Christmas season of 2021, 2024 and 2025. 2009’s Avatar remains the highest-earning film worldwide with a $2.79 billion gross at the box office.

Moore can currently be seen on the big screen in the Jason Bourque-directed thriller Drone, and his film credits include DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story and Oliver Stone’s Savages.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
