'Jurassic World' Adds Vincent D'Onofrio As Its Villain And Irrfan Khan In A Supporting Role

Jurassic Park has always been a movie that combined aspects of fear, adventure, adrenaline ,and action all in one sitting. Never has it really benefited from the use of a objectified antagonist, more like the good guys simply run for their lives from the scariest things to walk the earth since Miley Cyrus and Marilyn Manson. Yet something strange has arisen, the sudden news of a villain, in Jurassic Park? With new additions Vincent D'Onofrio (Men in Black) and Irrfan Khan (The Amazing Spider-Man) there is new rumors of them playing a villainous role in the upcoming installment in the Jurassic Park franchise. 

Well how will this work? Well let's start things off with Irrfan Khan, who was rumored to be up for a par in the film a few months back. The Wrap now bring us our first confirmation of who Khan will be playing, which is rumored to be the newest owner of one of the Jurassic Park regions named "Patel". While it's still unknown whether Patel will be an antagonist or protagonist, his apparent affiliations with D'Onofrio's villain character would lead me to believe he'll be the latter. Therefore, the film will most likely be center on Chris Pratt's (Guardians of the Galaxy) character embarking on a journey along with that of Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3) as well as Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help) in order to go on some objectified mission that ultimately ends up in them running for their lives. Khan seems like a strong addition to the growing cast, and can make for either a great secondary villain or supporting character.

As for D'Onofrio's character, The Wrap indicates that his character is said to be the CFO of the Patel Corporation, his demeanor is said to be that of a family man with a dark motive. Most likely he may have a idea similar to Alessandro Nivola's role as Billy Brennan in Jurassic Park 3. Secretly stealing dinosaur eggs while traveling with the group did provide a small variation in range within the story. Maybe even Pete Postlethwaite's role in Jurassic Park: The Lost World as a poacher could as be considered as a minor protagonist to Arliss Howard broader antagonist role in the film.

Although both Khan and D'Onofrio are extraordinarily talented actors that'll be more than welcome to the series' fourth installment, one can't help but wonder why director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) feels the film needs a villain in the form of a human (And in this case business man) when the real threat of these films is the dinosaurs themselves. Are perhaps that's the real irony of it, because these film's don't exactly require an antagonist, especially when you have Velociraptors and a Tyrannosaurus Rex are more than enough to keep the main characters entertained for the time being. D'Onofrio will undoubtedly play an excellent villain, has he's shown before in films such as the first Men In Black, and Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket. The actor has also proven he can pull of the nice guy facade as seen on his turn in Law and Order. 

So how do you feel about the two additional castings in Jurassic World? Are you looking forward to the new installment and possibly a new set of films to compliment it? Leave your comments below!
