Jurassic World 2 Adds Captain America Actor, One More
Jurassic World blew away the box office becoming one of the biggest films ever made. Certainly, there were sequels planned following that and the next movie in the franchise is looking at bringing a pair of new actors on board. One of them is Captain America: The First Avenger's Toby Jones, the other is Rafe Spall from _Prometheus. _
According to Variety, both actors are currently in talks to join the cast that will include the returning Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Since we have no idea what Jurassic World 2 will be about, this also means we have no idea what roles the two actors are looking at taking. They are being described as "key roles" which implies they're integral to the plot. There are apparently two other key roles that need to be cast, but decisions have not been made on them yet. Reportedly the studio wanted to solidify these two roles first.
Toby Jones is probably best known to movie fans as Arnim Zola, the scientist working alongside the Red Skull in Captain America: The First Avenger who is discovered to have had his mind downloaded to a computer system during Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Rafe Spall has also been in a variety of films including The Big Short and most recently in Steven Spielberg's The BFG. You might remember him as Millburn, the galaxy's dumbest biologist in Prometheus.
While these roles could certainly be anything under the sun, we like the idea that they could be something similar to their previous roles. Jurassic Park is certainly not without its share of evil scientists, so Toby Jones could clearly plan one again. Rafe Spall could also play a paleontologist who tries to make friends with a dinosaur by speaking to it in baby talk, only to get to his head literally eaten.
Just about the only thing that we know about Jurassic Park 5/Jurassic World 2. is what little J.A. Bayona has told us. We're expecting a darker and scarier dinosaur movie. Beyond, that we have no idea. The sequel will be going into production next year with an eye on a June 2018 release date. We'll almost certainly get a few more details once that happens. Based on what we've heard even the stars of the film don't know what the plan is yet. We're fairly certain that there will be dinosaurs in it, and those dinosaurs will almost certainly eat people. That's about all we need to be sure of to be on board.
