Sam Neill Won’t Be In “Jurassic World”

He starred in the first and third films, but those hoping to see Sam Neill reprise his role of Dr. Alan Grant in the upcoming “Jurassic World” are sadly going to be disappointed.

Speaking with The Examiner (via Jurassic World Fansite), Neill says he’s not against the idea – it’s just the franchise looks to have moved on:

“I think there’s a whole new cast and a whole new look at things, and I think that’s great. As I said, I’d never say no, but I wish them… well, I’m sure it’s going to be great, but they don’t need me.
