Next time mankind's scientific hubris leads to a dinosaur outbreak, will Sam Neill be around to save our visiting grandchildren? No. No, he will not. Speaking to the Examiner (via), Neill confirmed that his ascot has been tossed to the breeze, replaced by newer and brighter ascots for the upcoming Jurassic World.
"There's a whole new cast and a whole new look at things, and I think that's great," Neill said of the latest Jurassic Park sequel. "They don't need me."
Still, he adds he'd "never say no" were director Colin Trevorrow to ask him to come in for a cameo. So come on. At least let him motion-capture the expressions on a raptor.
