Jake-Johnson-The-Pretty-One

For months, Jurassic World casting rumors have been flying around, teasing Jake Johnson‘s involvement with the fourth in the Jurassic Park film series, along with Idris Elba, but today clarified situation on both names.

Johnson (The Pretty One) has confirmed himself for the Colin Trevorrow upcoming film, which will begin shooting very soon. The actor, who was in Trevorrow’s previous film, Safety Not Guaranteed, said in an interview with the Hufflington Post:

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.

They didn’t give a description of what his character would be. As for the rumor that the badass Brit would be fighting dinos in Jurassic World there’s been firm denial from Trevorrow who took to Twitter and had this response:

I love this rumor as much as the next guy, but Idris Elba won’t be joining us. The dinosaurs wouldn’t stand a chance.

No doubt a bunch of actors from the first film are in Jurassic World, which opens June 2015. Chris Pratt stars as “a rugged, ex-military man named Owen,” Bryce Dallas Howard, BD Wong reprising the role of Dr. Henry Wu, along with Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, and Omar Sy.
