Here’s the newly released clip from Independence Day Resurgence featuring cult favourite Brent Spinder back in his genius scientist role, Dr Brakish Okun.

Brent Spinder is perhaps best known for playing the android Data from Star Trek The Next Generation. He’s been busy with many roles on TV since then but most recently again appeared with Patrick Stewart (aka Captain Picard) in the comedy Blunt Talk.
