While Universal is banging the drum for the Jurassic Park 3D re-release – in theaters this Friday, April 5th – they’re having the talent involved with the film reminisce to major outlets about its’ 20th Anniversary. Here’s an interview Laura Dern and Sam Neill did for “The Today Show”, and there’s a cool look at what might have been! Still think Dern was the right choice for the role though.

It’s not groundbreaking, but it’s a nice little look at what could have been. I like Paltrow, but she was way too young and soft at the time to play Dr. Ellie Sattler. Head inside to check it out!

    So cool. I can’t wait to see this on the big screen.

    I could see Helen as Ellie, but not Gwyneth. Jurassic Park is one of my top 3 all time favorite movies EVER. I can’t wait to see this in 3D. I’m going to see it twice, once in 3D and once in 2D.

    I heard Paltrow turned the role down when she found out that not all dinosaurs were vegetarians.

    I’d love to see it on the big screen again. just not in post conversion 3D.

    Hellen would have been a great Ellie. Not gwyneth though, she just didn’t fit.
