Out Actor BD Wong to Star in ‘Jurassic Park’ Sequel: VIDEO

Wong

Earlier this week, it was announced that gay actor BD Wong, who played Dr. Henry Wu in 1993's Jurassic Park, will be reprising his role for the upcoming sequel Jurassic World, IGN reports.

Said writer-director Colin Trevorrow: 

“…[Dr. Wu] had a much larger role in the original novel – he was the engineer of this breakthrough in de-extinction. He spent two decades living in Hammond’s shadow, underappreciated. We think there’s more to his story.”

Check out Wong in the iconic Velociraptor egg hatching scene from the original, AFTER THE JUMP...

Jurassic World staring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong is set to hit screens June 2015.

  1. BD Wong just gets more handsome every year. There must be an aging portrait of him in his attic.

    Also, look for him this may in The Normal Heart, in a role created especially for him in the film by Larry Kramer.

    SEX. BOMB.

  5. It was great that you added the film clip, in my view one of the most remarkable in recent films with full credit to the magicians of special effects. Wong will do a great job, I can hardly wait.

  8. With all due respect to Mr. Wong, I just don't think moviegoers have been on the edge of their seats waiting for a THIRD Jurassic Park sequel.

  9. This will be huge. Dinosaur movies have a built-in audience as does this franchise. Plus, Chris Pratt and hopefully some shirtless scenes!

  10. Now I'm excited to see it! Yay!

  11. I miss seeing him as Dr. Huang on Law & Order: SVU. He was one of the best parts of the show, next to Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni's shirtless scenes.
