Jake Johnson Fallen Kingdom

Say what you will about Jurassic World, one of the highlights of the film was Jake Johnson‘s character Lowery (and his interactions with Lauren Lapkus‘ character Vivian). Johnson’s character didn’t return for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, but at one point, there was a chance the character could’ve had a part to play in the recently-released sequel.
