Jurassic World 4 casts a star of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Asteroid City in a leading role. Having successfully re-launched the Jurassic Park franchise through a trilogy of dino-thrillers, Universal is going ahead with a fourth film in the blockbuster series, with Gareth Edwards set to direct. The Jurassic World 4 cast has already added Scarlett Johansson, alongside Jonathan Bailey and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo.

Now a fourth name is being reported to join that previously-announced trio, as Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Grand Inquisitor actor Rupert Friend climbs aboard the upcoming Jurassic World sequel (via THR). Details on Friend’s role are being kept under wraps.

Jurassic World revived the Jurassic Park franchise with a new cast that included Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, later bringing back OG stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum as well. The legacy-cast-plus-new-stars approach proved successful for the trilogy, which grossed $3.9 billion worldwide, raising the gross for all six movies over the $6 billion worldwide mark.

It’s yet to be seen whether the newest Jurassic Park/Jurassic World entry will itself bring back any stars from the previous films. Thus far, only new cast members have been announced, with Johansson coming over from the MCU to provide some box office clout. Friend brings his own franchise experience as well, having played the menacing Grand Inquisitor in the Star Wars Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Friend’s villainous turn in Obi-Wan Kenobi demonstrated his ability to play a heavy, and perhaps he will be called upon to bring similar qualities to Jurassic World 4 (though without the otherworldly Star Wars look). But Friend can play quirky too, as he has proven by appearing in multiple Wes Anderson projects, including last year’s Asteroid City (which, coincidentally, also starred Johansson). Story and character details for Jurassic World 4 should be revealed soon, as the movie is being fast-tracked toward theaters.
