'Jurassic World' Director Implies Sequel Composed Entirely of New Cast Will... Still Have BD Wong?

March 18, 2014


BD Wong only had a handful of lines in the first Jurassic Park, but man, did he ever make the most of them. That beat between "you're implying that a group composed entirely of female animals will" and "breed." The way he punctuates it with a pencil raise? He should have patented that, packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunch box, because he was selling it. And according to Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow, he'll be back to sell some more in the latest sequel.

Speaking to IGN, Trevorrow said that while he doesn't want to shoehorn all the old characters in for the sake of fan service, "there is a character from the first film who makes sense in our world." That character: Dr. Henry Wu, BD Wong's perpetually note-taking scientist from the 1994 classic. "He had a much larger role in the original novel, he was the engineer of this breakthrough in de-extinction," the director elaborated. "He spent two decades living in Hammond's shadow, underappreciated. We think there's more to his story." Also, now that Wong has spent time in both Oz and the Special Victims Unit, a resurrected dinosaur rampage isn't even going to phase the guy. You should see the shit this guy's seen.
