Jurassic World 3 Brings Back Dodgson With A New Actor, Report Says

The next Jurassic World movie, Dominion, is reportedly bringing back Lewis Dodgson from the original Jurassic Park.


Jurassic World: Dominion is seemingly bringing back the character Lewis Dodgson from the original Jurassic Park. Collider reports that Dodgson is coming back, and he'll be played by character actor Campbell Scott.

Cameron Thor played Dodgson in the original movie. Dodgson is being recast following Thor's conviction of a sex crime.

Dodgson--who is an executive at InGen rival BioSyn--appeared in just one scene in the original Jurassic Park, where he met up with Wayne Knight's Dennis Nedry to give him a Barbasol can with a fake bottom where Nedry could hide the dinosaur embryos he stole. Nedry successfully steals the embryos but is killed by a dinosaur when he's attempting to deliver them, leaving the Barbasol can in the mud.

With Dodgson coming back in Dominion, it seems possible that we may learn what happened to those embryos. Dodgson is not the only character from Jurassic Park coming back for Dominion, as Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and Iam Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) will be in the movie, too.

The Dodgson character was important in Michael Crichton's The Lost World, but he did not show up in the movie version. According to Collider, the story of Dominion will reveal Dodgson to be the CEO of BioSyn, but it's too early to say if he will be the main villain of the movie.

Jurassic World: Dominion brings back Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Colin Trevorrow, who directed 2015's Jurassic World, is coming back to direct Dominion. J.A. Bayona directed Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and now he's directing the Lord of the Rings TV show.

Dominion is one of the first major studio movies to resume production, and Universal is said to be spending millions of dollars on health and safety measures.
