Another actor has signed on for Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World. Jake Johnson of New Girl fame is the latest to join the growing cast for the upcoming dinosaur-fueled thriller.
Johnson confirmed the news in a Huffington Post interview, where he was asked if he got the role because he previously worked with Trevorrow before on Safety Not Guaranteed.
Absolutely. Now, I’m also a huge fan of “Jurassic Park.” When I was growing up and “Jurassic Park” came out, I freaked out like every other kid. I was born in ’78, so I was, like, 12. If it wasn’t Colin and someone said they wanted me in “Jurassic Park,” I would jump on it. The fact that it’s Colin, written by Derek Connolly (who wrote “Safety Not Guaranteed”) and both those guys are personal friends, I’d go through a wall.
Jurassic World is also set to feature Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, and BD Wong reprising his role of Dr. Henry Wu from the original. The film will hit theaters on June 12, 2015.
