Jake Johnson Confirmed For Jurassic World


It looks as if the cast of Jurassic World is just about set, with news that the previously rumored Jake Johnson has now been confirmed to be taking on a role in the highly-anticipated film. The confirmation comes from the actor himself, who told the Huffington Post that he’s a huge fan of the franchise and jumped at the chance to work with his Safety Not Guaranteed director, Colin Trevorrow, again.

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.

Johnson will be joining an already impressive cast made up of both established talents and up and comers. So far, we have Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, BD Wong, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson and the recently announced Omar Sy. Unfortunately, plot details are scarce but some concept art was revealed the other day that might provide a few hints as to what we can expect. From the looks of it, the park will be a lot more modern and futuristic this time around. Not sure how that will play into the overall story but it’s all we really have to go on right now.

Jurassic World will open for business on June 12th, 2015. Are you happy about Jake Johnson joining the cast? Sound off below!
