According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor James Dumont has joined the ever-growing ensemble cast of Jurassic World, which moved filming to New Orleans earlier this month.
Known for his work in 'Dallas Buyers Club' and his portrayl of Sherman Adams in 'The Butler', you will be able to see him next in the James Brown biopic, 'Get On Up', directed by Tate Taylor who previously directed Jurassic World's own Bryce Dallas Howard on 'The Help'. His role in Jurassic World is yet to be disclosed.
What do you think about Dumont's addition to the cast? Will he fit in with Colin Trevorrow's barrage of actors?

Information on the plot and characters of Jurassic World has been sparce, but thanks to Fred Topel of Movies with Butter, we now know a little bit more about the film and about one of the main characters. While promoting The Wolverine, Brian Tee spoke to Fred on the red carpet and told him a little about the film, confirming that he plays Hamada, the head of security at Jurassic World.
“I get to be another badass, I get to play with dinosaurs here and there. I think Jurassic World is going to be bigger, badder, better than any other Jurassic Park that you’ve seen.”
We've been briefly hearing similar things from actors attached to the franchise which is a positive sign! Fred guessed that Brian Tee plays a scientist, but he quickly corrected him.
“I’m Hamada. I’m the head of security at Jurassic World. Just in case something happens, because what could go wrong? There are many giant dinosaurs. They’re probably really tame in their own environment and stuff like that, so I’m just a precaution, that’s all.”
Brian also discussed director Colin Trevorrow and what it's like to work with him on set:
“For what we shot, it was I think the best of both worlds. It was definitely very measured, but when you’re in the world itself, you’ve got to represent that particular aesthetic. So he was definitely in the trenches with us. We’re rolling through mud and dirt and trees and bushes and swamp and all this other stuff, and he was in there getting dirty. Absolutely.”
It's great to be hearing the actors talk about the film in a positive light. So far it seems as though the filming has gone smoothly.

EXCLUSIVE: First look at Jurassic World merchandise from the Licensing Expo!
Posted by Jack DLM - Friday 27 June 2014 at 02:27PM - 7 Comments
Over the past week, I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of the Jurassic World merchandise from the Licensing Expo that happened a couple of weeks ago in Las Vegas. While this merchandise will likely not be sold outside of the Expo, it's a good indication of what Universal Pictures are planning with Jurassic World, and what kind of merchandise we might end up seeing when the film is near release.
I received two items - a Jurassic World 3D keyring, which is also a working light, and a Jurassic World bag which has a similar pattern on it as seen in the Hasbro packaging tease a little while back. Check out the photos below!
The keyring is a cool piece and is not too heavy or bulky. The bag is very light, almost like a shopping bag. What's interesting to note is the logo on the bag itself. As you can see by the close-up image above, it's the same logo as seen on the big banners at the Licensing Expo. I believe that we are getting our first look at the official and final logo for Jurassic World.
As for the texture on the bag, we believe that what we are seeing is the skin of a Mosasaur and that this will be a running theme throughout the merchandise packaging.
