With McG and Christian Bale inching ever closer to Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins‘ summer 2009 release date, the sequel’s supporting cast is starting to fill in.

Bloody-Disgusting reports that Sam Worthington — currently filming James Cameron‘s 3-D blockbuster-in-waiting Avatar — has joined the T4 cast, and what’s more, sources say the Cameron connection was instrumental in his getting the gig. From the article:

While the “Terminator Salvation” plot has twists and turns that are being kept under tight wraps, Worthington will play the role of Marcus, a central figure in a three-picture arc that begins after Skynet has destroyed much of humanity in a nuclear holocaust. A group of survivors led by John Connor (Christian Bale) struggles to keep the machines from finishing the job.

The article goes on to quote unnamed sources as saying “McG spoke on the phone recently with Cameron,” a conversation that resulted in Cameron recommending Worthington to his latest Terminator successor. In Avatar, Worthington stars as “a paraplegic war veteran from Earth who’s brought to another planet inhabited by a race of humanoids at odds with Earth’s inhabitants.”

On the whole, fans stills seem rather skeptical about McG’s chances for success with the third Terminator sequel, but Bale’s involvement and Cameron’s willingness to provide input can only bode well for the picture. Right?
