‘Jurassic Park 4′ May Have A Dino-Wrangler From “The Office”

We ignored yesterday’s Jurassic Park 4 news because it was friggin’ stupid. Director Colin Trevorrow literally said nothing about the forthcoming sequel, and people reported it as rumor control. It was mind-boggling, in fact.

Anyways, there’s some news thats news today! Congrats Internet! Movieweb has some potential casting for Universal Pictures’ third sequel that will possibly take us back to Nebular for modern dino-action.

The site is hearing that “The Office” star John Krasinski – wo is also the insanely annoying voice in the “Esurance” commercials – is up for a role as one of the theme park workers in charge of ‘taming’ some of the dinosaurs. The role is being compared to that of Dennis Quaid’s Mike Brody in Jaws 3D. It should be underlined that this is unconfirmed (see what I did there?).

Since we’re talking JP4, here’s a fun bit of information that was revealed in yesterday’s non-news (man, I’m cranky). “It’s important to make a movie for the fans but I also have to remember that there’s a lot of people who just couldn’t care less and need me to make a solid case for why the hell there’s a Jurassic Park IV in the first place and I want to make a movie for them too.

Being that his former work is the indie Safety Not Guaranteed, I think it’s safe to say that studio execs are constantly crawling up his back making decisions for him. I just hope that he’s able to get most of what he envisions up on the screen come 2015.

    Oh man, John Krasinksi is one of my man crushes. I’ll totally be seeing this though, even if he’s not in it.

    a dino-wrangler? to me having a person capable of keeping 4 story tall carnivores and pre-historic pack hunters in check is pretty implausible in the context of this story, regardless of the weaponry he may have. it’s just like in the lost world where the hunter was able to take down a t-rex with a gun… with one shot. the planet’s greatest predator being brought down so easily greatly diminishes the threat of these creatures. in fact, they did something similar when they first arrive in part 2 and just wreck shop on the herbivores in the stampede scene. really? and the creatures wouldn’t fight back at all and be abducted so easily? “you homo-sapiens and your guns”
