The much anticipated moment has begun: Jurassic World 2 has officially started adding members to its cast, reports Variety. We know the highly anticipated Jurassic Park sequel has been holding an open casting call for the role of ‘Lucy’, a 9 year old girl, but now new players have entered the game. Toby Jones and Rafe Spall will be joining Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the upcoming dinosaur filled adventure.
You may recognize Toby Jones (pictured left) most recently from Marvels ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ where he repised the role of Dr. Arnim Zola. He also more recently stars in BBC’s ‘Sherlock’, and has been in numerous other films, including playing the iconic voice of Dobby the House Elf in the Harry Potter series. At this time there is no indication of what role he may be playing, though his character is suspected to be named ‘Wheaton’.
Rafe Spall is perhaps best known for his role of Millburn in ‘Prometheus’, the Ridley Scott directed Alien prequel. He also has started in numerous films including ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and ‘The Life of Pi’ (the latter happened to star Irrfan Khan, AKA Simon Masrani). Much like Jones, no details are available about what role he may be playing other than the name ‘Mills’.
Variety reports that Jurassic World 2 producers are currently in the process of casting two other roles as well. We believe one to be the aforementioned Lucy, while the other to be the role of ‘Clint’ – a 20 something male technician with a certain apathetic sense of ‘unsure of himself, and the situation he is in energy’. Clint is expected to co-star alongside Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt in a supporting role who really isn’t happy about being potential dino-food, but empathizes with the animals none the less.
I think both Rafe and Toby will be fantastic additions to the Jurassic Park franchise, and I am eagerly anticipating news on who may land the role of Clint. As always, stay tuned for the latest news, and sound off in the comments below!
