Vincent D’Onofrio has been cast as the villain in Jurassic World. This is a very inspired casting choice since Vincent is best known in the acting world as a “human chameleon” for being known as the actor’s actor.
Originally reported by Deadline Hollywood, D’Onofrio joins an already-amazing cast whom includes Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation) and Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help, 50/50). Ty Simpson and Irrfan Khan will also join the cast too. Also reported from TheWrap, an individual close the casting has said Vincent will play the CFO of the Patel Corporation who projects the appearance of a normal family man to mask a hidden edge. To help understand the full picture, Khan will be playing Patel, the billionaire owner of the Patel Corporation who now owns the new Jurassic Park.
D’Onofrio is considered to be a fine choice for the villain since he is known to do well playing characters who are both menacing and sleazy. His career is loaded with many iconic roles known to this day. His initial, and probably most famous, role is playing Private Leonard Lawrence a.k.a. Gomer Pyle in Full Metal Jacket. He has also played Edgar in Men In Black and Detective Robert Goren in the television series, Law & Order(which he recently retired).
Since then, D’Onofrio has been working really hard. He recently just finished two movies by Warner Bros.,The Judge and Run All Night. He also played a role in the upcoming movie The Mall, which is based off the first novel by Eric Bogosian. Vincent stars as a peeping tom who has an eye out for Gina Gershon’s naughty housewife character. However, he has also produced and co-written the movie.
As for the movie Jurassic World, it is not a direct sequel from the third movie. As earlier reported by the Inquisitr, the setting for the fourth installment in the series takes place two decades after the events in the first movie. Besides that and some basic details of certain characters, very little is known about the plot for a movie which has been in “development hell”. Why it has been almost more than a decade since Jurassic Park III was released back in 2001. Right now as it stands, Colin Trevorrow will be directing with production done by Frank Marshall, Patrick Crowley, and Jurassic Park director, Steven Spielberg.
Jurassic World was originally set to be released in June 2014 but has been re-entered development for a Summer 2015 release.
