"For me, Jurassic Park was really kind of my Star Wars," the 34-year-old actor shared to QMI Agency. He further added: "I lined up at the theater to see it, I saw its opening night, I saw every sequel. I've seen it a whole bunch of times... for me that was my big movie, I think I was 13 or 14 when it came out. So it's a big deal for me to be any part of that, let alone this part I'm going to be playing. I'm thrilled about it."
