Fans of James Dashner’s book The Maze Runner will have been waiting for this casting for a while, and I won’t spoil those of you who haven’t read it, but having this Oscar nominee and Emmy winner join the group is really exciting. Meet Ava Paige!
Patricia Clarkson (Shutter Island, The Green Mile, Jumanji) will be playing the most interesting adult you’ll meet in The Maze Runner. That’s all you’ll get out of me! Here’s the announcement as tweeted by book author James Dashner.
Kinda awesome to have an Oscar nominee and Emmy winner in The Maze Runner. More than kinda. Patricia Clarkson as Ava Paige!!!!
