Take your stinking paw off me, you damn dirty ape!
~ Dodge Landon's famous quote.

Dodge Landon is the secondary antagonist in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

He was potrayed by Tom Felton, who also played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films.


Landon worked in the animal sanctuary where Caesar was sentenced to as arrest when he attacked an arrogant airline pilot, Hunsiker, that tried to arrest Will's father. Landon calls Caesar a "stupid monkey," and got angry at the chimpanzee for laughing at him. He knows Cornelia and Maurice's names but he does not know Caesar's name, using trash talk to call him "damn dirty ape" and "stupid monkey".

He tried to amuse two female visitors at the sanctuary by using his electrocuting stick to strike the metal cages that caused all the frightened apes to scream in fear.


Dodge Landon's Death

Dodge Landon being electrocuted to death.

I'm gonna skin each and every one of you!
~ Dodge's last words

One night Caesar escaped the sanctuary to spread the ALZ-113 to the apes at the sanctuary. Caesar was out of his cage, influencing Dodge to attack him with his electrocuter. Dodge was punched in the face by Caesar. After locking up the other ape handler, Rodney, in one of the cages, Dodge gained back consciousness and tried to electrocute Caesar with the taser. Caesar retaliates by spraying water at him, which causes him to be electrocuted, killing him.

His death was captured on a surveillance camera, which police officers and John Landon witnessed Dodge's untimely demise.



  • His name is a combination of Dodge and Landon, two of Taylor's astronauts in 1968's Planet of the Apes.
