Mekhi Phifer, better known to us Initiates as Max, the ex-leader of the Dauntless, dropped by the Today show and talked to Kathie Lee and Hoda about the anticipated sequel Insurgent.
“My oldest son finally thinks I’m cool” says Mekhi now that he is part of a large blockbuster series such as Divergent. A short clip was also shown featuring Jai Courtney (Eric), Octavia Spencer (Johanna) and Mekhi, where we get to see a familiar scene of Dauntless traitors showing up at Amity to test for Divergents and to look for Four, Tris, Peter, Caleb and Marcus, who managed to escape in the last movie.

Watch the clip above and let us know what you think. Isn’t Octavia the perfect Johanna?
