John Krasinski might appear in Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic Park IV as a "dinosaur tamer"

Jurassic Park IV

Hot on the heels of yesterday's comments by director Colin Trevorrow about JURASSIC PARK IV comes word from Movieweb that John Krasinski might star in the film as a dinosaur tamer.

In June, plot details surfaced from Jurassic Park IV that indicate the actual theme park is up and running. Now we're hearing that The Office star John Krasinski is up for a role as one of the theme park workers in charge of 'taming' some of the dinosaurs.

You can check out the plot details mentioned above right here. Movieweb also says Krasinski's role is similar to Dennis Quaid's Mike Brody in JAWS 3-D. If the rumors about the theme park are true I can see why they would compare the two roles, but hopefully the quality of the two films won't be same. I haven't watched that much of The Office (the American version anyway), but I've enjoyed Krasinski in most of the films he's starred in (especially AWAY WE GO), and I think he would be a good fit for JURASSIC PARK 4.

JURASSIC PARK IV should be in theaters sometime in 2015.

Extra Tidbit: Maybe one of the dinos he tames in JURASSIC PARK IV will be named Dwight.

The open park idea basically contradicts the point of the original book/film.

It reeks of JAWS 3D, and also, I know this will get me tons of downvotes, but I *hate* John Krasinski. I loved The Office, but he ruined it for me towards the end as they began to focus more and more on his character. I find him extremely irritating and douchey, even though he ostensibly plays 'nice guy' characters. If he's in this it'll be hard for me as a huge fan of the first one.

This is the first piece of news about this film that made me think this whole thing is a bad idea. :(

I'm with you 100%, I can't stand this guy, think he's just terrible. Remember when they were trying to make him Captain America?!?! Thank GOD that didn't happen.

Am I the only Jurassic Park fan not in love with the open park idea? Maybe if it was about a team trying to re-open the park, it would be ok. But the point of the first movie (and even the sequels in parts) was that the park was a bad idea and the dinos can't be contained. Now a sequel comes along with the park open, but no story of how and why it got reopened after the events of the previous films. Maybe it'll will be explained in the film, but if not I can't help but feel this would be

No.

After a dinosaur eats someone he'll probably look into the camera with his goofy "I'm so awkward" face. Fuck that.

Give this guy a lead role!

Doesn't have to be this movie particularly but he definitely deserves a chance to shine.

This would be good casting. I am can totally see him as a dinosaur tamer. I hope it turns out to be true.

Extra Tidbit of My Own:

I have Trevorrow's personal e-mail and phone number, I've spoken with him many times, we know each other's families, etc. but I've never physically met the man. He was giving me writing advice when he still didn't have a single produced credit to his name. I don't know Krasinski but I've met him a couple times at screenings, had cocktails with he and his wife.

Go figure.

I'm downvoting you, but in this case its out of awe. If you just added "and his wife, Emily Blunt, whose lovely and we go to the same yoga class" it'd be the most Bret Ratner-esque comment ever.
