Say hello to the bad guy. Jurassic World has found its (non-dinosaur) villain

Jurassic World has just cast a very important role. So far, they've managed to nail down Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Bryce Dallas Howard (Terminator: Salvation), Jake Johnson (Fox's New Girl) and Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer), but none of them are playing the villain. They needed someone who could be mentally and physically intimidating. Enter Vincent D'Onofrio.

According to Deadline, D'Onofrio has signed on to terrorize the cast in the upcoming film. Not much is known about his character, including his name, but we're sure he's a force to be reckoned with. D'Onofrio's acting credits include Full Metal Jacket, Men in Black, The Cell and a 10-season run on the series Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Also joining the cast is Irrfan Khan (The Amazing Spider-Man) in an undisclosed role.

Jurassic World will be directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), who also co-wrote the script with Derek Connolly. Once again, Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall are on board to produce. The film's scheduled to hit theaters June 12, 2015, and of course it will be in 3D.
