Casting news regarding Jurassic World 2 has been virtually unheard of lately. However this changed today as Variety reported that Toby Jones and Rafe Spall would be joining the sequel in undisclosed roles. Variety also reported that these roles were selected in advance of two other apparently integral roles:
"Sources say producers are also getting ready to test for two other key roles in the project but wanted to get these offers out of the way first before making choices."
These two other roles may be the girl known as 'Lucy' in a previously described casting call. This character is a lead character in the new movie, and whose father is also apparently integral to the plot. The other role may be that of a character known as 'Clint' who was described in a casting call, since taken down, as a Systems Architect.
We still do not know their roles, but they may be important as they are the first ones announced. The other two roles currently in casting may also be closely related to the roles that Toby and Rafe play as well. Toby Jones in particular has sometimes been cast as a villain in his larger film and television roles.
Rafe Spall has numerous film and television credits, he was previously in 'The B.F.G' as well as 'The Big Short'. On television he starred in the most recent season of 'Black Mirror'. Toby Jones has starred in Hollywood blockbusters before having had major roles in 'Captain America: The First Avengers' and 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'. He will also star in the next season of Sherlock as a villain.
Jurassic World 2 will be released on June 22, 2018. Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt will return to play Claire Dearing and Owen Grady in the film. The movie will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, who has directed 'The Impossible.
