Paleontologists Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler and mathematician Ian Malcolm are among a select group chosen to tour an island theme park populated by dinosaurs created from prehistoric DNA. While the park's mastermind, billionaire John Hammond, assures everyone that the facility is safe, they soon find out otherwise when various ferocious predators break free and go on the hunt.
Characters and Cast:
. Dr. Alan Grant ( played by Karl Urban ) - An introverted and rather cynical world-renowned paleontologist and author who specializes in hadrosaur and other duck-billed dinosaurs. He agrees to visit and inspect Jurassic Park after being approached by John Hammond to take a tour and endorse it so his investors will be more confident.
. Dr. Ian Malcolm ( played by Robert Downey, Jr. ) - A snarky and eccentric world famous mathematician working at the Santa Fe institute who is invited to Jurassic Park by Donald Gennaro with the hopes of easing the minds of InGen's investors. He specializes in chaos theory and believes that the dinosaurs are too much of an unknown factor to keep control and predicts that things will turn wrong and chaotic.
. Dr. Ellie Sattler ( played by Brie Larson ) - An intelligent and resourceful colleague and paleobotanist who works alongside Dr. Grant in the Badlands of Montana. Her specialty and expertise draws the attention of John Hammond.
. Robert Muldoon ( played by Stephen Lang ) - Jurassic Park's embittered and highly cynical game warden who is much more sensible and realistic about the dinosaurs' capabilities. He knows the most about the Velociraptors, being all too aware of their danger and thinks they should be destroyed.
. John Hammond ( played by Anthony Hopkins ) - The grandfatherly and eccentric owner of Jurassic Park and the founder of InGen. Despite having genuine intentions, his curiosity and desire to prove the world his worth starts the whole mess.
. John 'Ray' Arnold ( played by Jamie Foxx ) - Jurassic Park's sarcastic and tech-savvy chief engineer who runs the main control systems from the Visitor Center and is a chain-smoker.
. Alexis 'Lex' Murphy ( played by Sadie Sink ) - John Hammond's granddaughter and Tim Murphy's older sister. She is friendly and easygoing, and is a computer expert.
