‘New Girl’s Jake Johnson Confirms ‘Jurassic World’ Role

Jake JohnsonJake Johnson, one of the stars of the hit sitcom New Girl is set to take on the world of dinosaurs in JURASSIC WORLD, the fourth instalment in the JURASSIC PARK franchise. This will reunite Johnson with his SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED director Colin Trevorrow. Speaking in an interview with The Huffington Post, Johnson responded to the following:

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.

Johnson will join Chris Pratt, another comedy show alumni, in the film which is set to return to a new look Isla Nublar. JURASSIC PARK III has to be in my list of biggest disappointments ever so the new talent that’s coming aboard is a good sign. It’s been a while since dinosaurs ruled the box office, let alone the Earth, so fingers crossed we’ll see something memorable.

JURASSIC WORLD is set for release on the 12th June. It stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, BD Wong, and Jake Johnson.
