Orange is the New Black's Lauren Lapkus has also joined the cast of the Jurassic Park reboot

Much-anticipated dinosaur flick Jurassic World has added three women to its growing cast. 


38-year-old American actress Judy Greer, who’s starred in Californication, Arrested Development and Two and a Half Men, has signed on to star in the film, alongside Merlin and Dracula star Katie McGrath and Lauren Lapkus, who’s appeared in Netflix Original Series Orange is the New Black. 

The actresses join Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Jake Johnson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, BD Wong, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins. 

There is no word yet on which roles the newly-added stars will play in the film, set 22 years after Jurassic Park on Isla Nebula, which has finally been opened to the public.  

The movie, which is seen as a continuation of the Jurassic Park franchise, is directed by Safety Not Guaranteed’s Colin Trevorrow and executive produced by the franchise’s original director Steven Spielberg. 

Jurassic World will hit cinemas in June 2015.
