French actor Omar Sy had a breakthrough role with the French film The Intouchables and landed the part of Bishop in the upcoming blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now he’s joined another tentpole feature by signing on to co-star in the fourth Jurassic Park movie, Jurassic World. Unsurprisingly, since we don’t know much about the plot, we don’t know much about his role, but it’s good to see another talented actor join the cast. The movie also stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins.
Hit the jump for tweets from Sy and director Colin Trevorrow about the actor joining the film. Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015. [Update: THR reports that Idris Elba and Jake Johnson have also joined the cast.] [2nd update: THR has quietly removed Elba from their listing of the cast members, and @slashfilm is tweeting that the rumor is “NOT true. I have this 100% confirmed”.]
Here’s what Sy tweeted:
And here’s what Trevorrow added:
It translates to “Very pleased to welcome Omar Sy to Jurassic World.”
