Jurassic World got itself a new player in the fight against those hungry dinos, and he's a True American.

According to the Huffington Post, New Girl breakout Jake Johnson has signed on to re-team with his Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow and is heading to Isla Nublar for the upcoming fourth entry in the Jurassic Park franchise.

Johnson said:

“Now, I’m…a huge fan of Jurassic Park. When I was growing up and Jurassic Park came out, I freaked out like every other kid. I was born in ’78, so I was, like, 12. If it wasn’t Colin and someone said they wanted me in Jurassic Park, I would jump on it. The fact that it’s Colin, written by Derek Connolly (who wrote Safety Not Guaranteed) and both those guys are personal friends, I’d go through a wall.”

Colin Trevorrow himself confirmed the casting in a Tweet to Johnson, saying "So we're doing this, huh?"

Jake Johnson joins Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas-Howard, Omar Sy, Ty Simpkins and B.D. Wong.

Jurassic World will claw its way into theaters on June 12, 2015.
