JURASSIC WORLD: the casting news keeps coming in

So because it’s Friday and because I love dinosaurs, here’s a quick rundown of all the casting news that’s trickled in for Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the best dinosaur movie franchise ever. 

Just announced cast members joining the dino ruckus: Judy Greer (13 Going on 30, like, every rom-com ever); Katie McGrath (Merlin); and Lauren Lapkus (Orange is the New Black). They join an already super impressive lineup: Jake Johnson (New Girl), Idris Elba (Luther), Chris Pratt (Parks and Rec), Bryce Howard (Lady in the Water), Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order: CI), Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi), Omar Sy (from the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past), Nick Robinson (Melissa & Joey), and BD Wong (Law & Order: SVU). 

Like I said. Quite a cast indeed. These humans and all  your favorite dinos are set to hit theaters June 12, 2015.

Dreams do come true: Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson to co-star in buddy cop comedy

My brain is crying with happiness. 

Because the universe clearly wanted the two of them to be together, hilarious sitcom boys Jake Johnson (New Girl) and Damon Wayans Jr (Happy Endings) have been cast to co-star in the buddy cop comedy Let’s Be CopsWhat’s that you say? You didn’t realize you could be this happy? I know. Me either. 

Considering Damon Wayans Jr has been killing it for 2.5 seasons over at the heinously underrated and underwatched Happy Endings, and Johnson is having the season of his life over on New Girl, the idea of the two of them together on the big screen, pretending to be cops, makes me just DIE. I die. It’s just too good. Is there such a thing as too much amazing? If so, I don’t wanna know. 

The film will see the two pranksters playing cops, when of course they find themselves in a bit of a hilarious predicament upon running into real life criminals. 

Can we buy our tickets now?

SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED trailer is here!

I have been waiting so long for this movie to come out. Not only does it star some stellar individuals—Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Rec), Jake Johnson (New Girl) to name a few—but the buzz surrounding it at SXSW and Sundance is enough to make my skin crawl with anticipation. It looks really great; lots of potential to be flat out awesome. I really cannot wait to see this film.
