Following Colin Trevorrow‘s announcement that he would not be asking any original cast members back for Jurassic World, I’ve been mending my broken heart. I still don’t understand why they can’t at least have a cameo in the fourth Jurassic Park film. But alas. We must go on.
While we may not be seeing Jeff Goldblum back on the island, we will be seeing another familiar face. New Girl star Jake Johnson has officially been confirmed
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Jake confirmed his involvement with the movie.
Did you get involved with “Jurassic World” because of Colin Trevorrow, who directed you in “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.
