James Cromwell Added To The Cast Of Jurassic World 2

Academy Award-nominated Babe actor James Cromwell is set to play a role in the upcoming science fiction  blockbuster sequel Jurassic World 2.

Although his name might draw a blank among casual movie viewers, they are bound to recognize Cromwell upon seeing him as he has noteworthy roles in numerous high-profile projects. Aside from portraying Farmer Hoggett in the aforementioned Babe, he has also appeared in Star Trek: First Contact, The Sum of All Fears, Spider-Man 3, and Oliver Stone‘s W. In addition, he had a regular role on the second season of American Horror Story, earning an Emmy Award for his portrayal of devious ex-Nazi scientist Dr. Arden.

The character he will play in the Jurassic World follow-up is unknown, but fans can expect to see him act alongside Toby Jones, Ted Levine and returning stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Superherohype, the source of this story, quoted director J.A. Bayona as saying this about the project:

“Every story is different and you need to find the depth of every story and try to express it on the screen,” Bayona recently told CS. “The ‘Jurassic World’ sequel is a more collaborative filmmaker experience, not only with Colin Trevorrow, but also with Steven [Spielberg] and with Frank Marshall. It’s their baby as much as it is mine. It’s about sharing views and working together to bring the story to life.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
