French Star Omar Sy Latest to Join Impressive Cast of 'Jurassic World'

Omar Sy

He's on the rise, making big steps into Hollywood with two major roles coming up. French actor Omar Sy, who won the Best Actor César Award for The Intouchables a few years ago, is already starring as Bishop in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, the actor has also revealed via his twitter that he's also officially cast in Colin Treverrow's upcoming Jurassic World reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise. Oh hell yes, this is awesome, Sy is a great actor and he's yet another stellar name added to the impressive cast of the new Jurassic Park movie. Maybe this reboot is headed down the right track? We can only hope.

Here's the original tweet (there's also one in French) from Sy where he reveals that he's cast in the movie:

The cast of Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World currently includes Chris Pratt (a big name after Guardians of the Galaxy), Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson (who starred in Trevorrow's Safety Not Guaranteed), Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Omar Sy. What a line-up and I have a feeling there's still a few more names to be added. It's definitely not the same as the original Jurassic Park or even any of its sequels, but I'm starting to get a good feeling about where this one is headed. And I think it's due to Colin Trevorrow, who is picking the right cast and (seemingly so far) making the right decisions with this movie. Let's hope that stays true all the way through production, but for now, this is shaping up very nicely.

Watch The Intouchables! It's a bit cheesy, but a wonderful film (moved me to tears), and he's great in it. Sy won the French Oscar for that one. He's also a lead in the new Michel Gondry film Mood Indigo, but it's not that good. I suggest watching The Intouchables. With X-Men and JW, he'll be very well known soon.

Thank you for the personal response Alex! My goodness! I had completely forgotten about that I have seen Omar Sy before. Wow! Helluva performance and yeah, this guy has chops for sure! // How is/was Japan? Did you get to eat ramen/okonomiyaki/gyudon?
