There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Tom Holland Was in Talks to Join Cast of Jurassic World 2

Casting for the upcoming Jurassic World sequel is now in full swing, with British actors Toby Jones and Raff Spall being announced as joining the production only two days ago. With the movie set to be “scene locating” this month in Hawaii, it’s no surprise that even more casting news is now hitting.

In a recent interview with Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, The Hollywood Reporter asked who he is dying to work with, which led to a Jurassic World 2 question:

Who are you dying to work with?
[Leonardo] DiCaprio, [Martin] Scorsese, [Quentin] Tarantino, Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington. Alejandro Inarritu. I want to work with Bayona again. I keep emailing my agent about it. Even the smallest role, I’ll do it.

Jurassic World, perhaps?
I don’t know if I’m available for that. We had a chat one time. There is a role there, but I don’t think I’ll be available to do it, unfortunately.

Tom Holland previously worked with director J.A. Bayona on the 2012 movie The Impossible, so it’s no surprise that Bayona has been in talks with Tom Holland, especially considering the latest role that the producers are currently casting for. As we previously reported, auditions are currently being held for the roles of ‘Lucy’ and ‘Clint’.

Clint is described as a twenty something male technician with a certain apathetic sense of ‘unsure of himself and the situation he is in’.

Based on that description, I think it’s fair to say that Tom Holland would have been in talks for the role of Clint, working alongside Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Now that we know Tom Holland is out, who would you cast? Let us know in the comments section below!

  1. It’s hard to tell whether I’d have liked Tom Holland in JW2. At first, I didn’t really like when I heard Bryce Dallas Howard was in the movie, because I never really cared for her and, in the end, I simply loved her job in the movie.

    Anyway, first, I’m happy to see production is going full throttle. It’s so comforting to see that, after the painful hiatus between the third and fourth instalments, JW’s sequel is really happening soon.

    That being said, I was doing some light research about young actors that could, perhaps, fit in the description of this character Clint (believing Holland’s role was supposed to be this one), I thought about Zachary Gordon, the protagonist of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I always liked that guy. Maybe he would play this character well.

  2. I’m not sure I could buy Holland as a twenty-something technician, despite the actor being twenty-years-old. But that’s a silly complaint on my part. I’m sure Bayona and Holland would have made it work.

    That said, I think someone like Taron Egerton could be a great option. I suspect we’ll ultimately get an unknown.
