Buckley has popular TV series "Veep", "Silicon Valley" and ABC's "Trophy Wife" to his credit. He will also be seen playing a detective in "Horrible Bosses 2".
D'Onofrio will play the anti-hero and Khan has been roped in, to become part of D'Onodrio's camp, reported Enstarz. Partt will lead the film.
Apart from Buckley, Jake Johnson known for his role of a bartender in "New Girl", will also be joining the cast of "Jurrasic Park 4".
"I'm the tech guy. I'm the guy in the booth, so I don't get to wrestle around with the dinos. That's Chris Pratt and Bryce Howard. They get to do all that," the actor explained about his role, reported Vulture.
Partt who reportedly starts shooting for the film in July further suggested that he is really excited for the film and if he gets a chance to converse with dinosaurs, he will choose T-Rex.
"Probably the T. Rex, but what I'm really excited about is the director, Colin Trevorrow, directed me in Safety Not Guaranteed. And the writer of that movie [Derek Connolly] did a rewrite on Jurassic World. That movie we did for, I think it was $600,000 up in Seattle, a 20-day shoot. I loved it. So to do that and now be doing Jurassic World together, it just feels like a fun jump." Partt explained.
Jurassic Park 4 will be hitting screens on June 11, 2015.
