Josh Brolin May Visit 'Jurassic World'

You have to give some credit to Josh Brolin. Even if his first venture into leading man blockbuster territory was nothing short a fucking disaster with "Jonah Hex," he's been brave enough to give it another whirl. And in 2012 he had much more success playing opposite Will Smith in "Men In Black 3." However, the pendulum of fate dealt the actor another blow when the star-studded "Gangster Squad" fizzled. But perhaps this means "Jurassic World" could be the right choice.

Josh Brolin

You have to give some credit to Josh Brolin. Even if his first venture into leading man blockbuster territory was nothing short a fucking disaster with "Jonah Hex," he's been brave enough to give it another whirl. And in 2012 he had much more success playing opposite Will Smith in "Men In Black 3." However, the pendulum of fate dealt the actor another blow when the star-studded "Gangster Squad" fizzled. But perhaps this means "Jurassic World" could be the right choice.

That's right, The Wrap is reporting that Brolin is "being eyed" for a lead role, but of course, that essentially means: "We like this dude, but our lawyers haven't gotten involved." Of course, details on the dino-sequel have been under lock and key beneath the Earth, but if it all works out, he would join Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson and Bryce Dallas Howard in the flick. And again, no word yet on what is actual role would be, so don't ask.

So Brolin rolling with dinos? Yeah, we'd be down with that. Anyway, we'll see what's in store when the Colin Trevorrow-directed movie hits on June 12, 2015.
