While he's been more known for swanning about in britches on Bridgerton (and earning acclaim for his work on recent miniseries Fellow Travelers), it appears Jonathan Bailey is ready to take on a whole other level of challenge. According to Deadline, the actor is now in early talks to join Scarlett Johansson in the cast of the next Jurassic World film.

Gareth Edwards is in the director's chair for the new entry, which reportedly will tell a new story set in the World, er, world, which means pivoting focus away from the likes of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard (or the original Jurassic Park trio). But there is one veteran Park person involved — writer David Koepp has crafted the script for this new film.

And Bailey is not the only person whose name has been mentioned in connection with the new dino-venture Daniel Richtman has floated the names of both Dev Patel and Colman Domingo in connection with the movie.

Universal clearly seems to like Richtman as an actor — he'll be seen as Fiyero in the two-part musical adaptation Wicked, whose first part is due in UK cinemas on 29 November.
