Jurassic World brings in Vincent D'Onofrio to play the villain

02.28.2014

Deadline and Variety are reporting Vincent D'Onofrio (MEN IN BLACK, "Law and Order: Criminal Intent") has signed on to star as the villain in JURASSIC WORLD. Plot details aren't available, but we can safely assume he's not playing a T-Rex or Velociraptor; perhaps some jerky corporate type comparable to the one Arliss Howard played in THE LOST WORLD? Or maybe he'll be an unsavory hunter or gamekeeper? Let the speculation run rampant.

D'Onofrio has experience playing unlikable characters, as evidenced by his turns in MIB, THE CELL, STRANGE DAYS and ESCAPE PLAN, among others. He's still most likely best known as Pvt. "Gomer" Pyle in FULL METAL JACKET, in which he's unforgettable.

D'Onofrio joins Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson and Irrfan Khan (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN), whose name had been rumored in regards to the sequel previously but now appears to be confirmed.

Colin Trevorrow is directing JURASSIC WORLD from a screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly; production has commenced in Hawaii and a June 12, 2015 release is planned.

Honestly, this is one franchise that doesn't need a "villain". The whole villain concept is getting so cut and dry, it's become boring. Just focus on the dinosaurs and let it be. There's no need to have a bad guy thrown in the mix.

Woah Joblo, the layout...

is pre 2005 lol. I remember this kind of formatting when this site was knee high to a grasshopper. Seriously though, it's a nice throwback to the good ol' days when Joblo was writing the articles and the block formation is pleasing to the eye. Schmoe for life!

I have a confession:

I haven't seen Jurassic Park 3 yet. I kinda stopped caring after 2.

I was always bummed they did nothing with the Dodgson character...

I mean they had him in that one scene in the first movie but that's it. But I hope Vincent's character is some sort of iteration of Dodgson from the books. He was such a compelling villain. A real asshole who was ruthless to both people and the dinosaurs. It will be interesting to see what they will come up with. I feel like I'm 7 again talking about this.

Fingers Crossed...

Always love some D'Onofrio. Screw it, I'm kind of hoping he'll just reprise his Pooh-Bear role from Salton Sea. "I'm a dog! Arf-arf-arf!"

Maybe he'll be Denis Nedry's younger brother out for revenge, haha. I wish I was more excited for this movie, Jurassic Park is one of my favorite films of all-time, and while it might be good I don't think it'll live up to what I have in my mind. I wish we were just getting one more final film to end the series, with the original cast returning. I'm not sure what to think of this sequel at this point.

I just recently watched the movie "CHAINED". Vincent D'Onofrio was great as the villain.

Villain? I'd say he's a "veteran" actor, not a dinasour!

Zing!!
- Maybe it'll be a fun movie, I don't know. I was surprised how much better Jurassic Park III was compared to the second one. Then again, I thought The Lost World was one of the worst movies of the decade.

Using the "Edit" tool can mask those mistakes.

Edit: I use it all the time.

Edit again: That may be an exaggeration.

Thanks, but there is no edit button on my mobile, the only edit option for me is when I post a reply, like my first one.
