The Hollywood Reporter have exclusively revealed that Justice Smith, who recently starred in Baz Lurhmann’s The Get Down, has joined the cast of the upcoming Jurassic World sequel, set to be directed by J.A. Bayona.
The announcement comes after a string of new casting tid bits over the past couple of weeks, including the casting calls for Lucy and Clint, and Toby Jones and Rafe Spall also joining the cast alongside Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt.
It is uncertain at this point who Justice will be playing, but it is possible that he will be playing the role of Clint – whose casting calls have described him as a twenty something male technician with a certain apathetic sense of ‘unsure of himself and the situation that he is in’.
Variety have reported that he will be playing a young scientist in the movie.
Justice Smith has appeared in Paper Towns and will be starring in the Off-Broadway play Yen which opens on January 30th.
