Jurassic World 2 Casts Buffalo Bill, So Put The Lotion In The Basket

Written by  Cinemablend

The body count in the Jurassic Park/Worldmovies is often high, leaving plenty of open spots for a follow-up. Jurassic World 2 will be no exception, as the sequel has slowly been building its cast over the last couple months.

Fortunately for them, they've just scored one of the most memorable people from 1991's Silence of the Lambs, as Ted Levine has been officially cast in Jurassic World 2. Does this mean he'll have a basket with lotion in it to give to the dinosaurs?

Yes, folks, the man who played serial killer Buffalo Bill nearly 30 years ago has joined Jurassic World 2, although Variety didn't have any details about the character he'll be playing. Ted Levine joins a cast that consists of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard reprising Owen Grady and Claire Dearing, respectively, as well as Toby Jones, Rafe Spall and Justice Smith playing new characters who haven't been identified yet either. BD Wong is also expected to reprise Dr. Henry Wu, though that's not confirmed.

Ted Levine has been acting since the early 1980s, but his breakout role came with Silence of the Lambs, where he played Buffalo Bill, a.k.a. Jame Gumb, the main antagonist who Jodie Foster's Clarice Starling hunted down for the FBI.

Ted Levine played Captain Stottlemeyer on Monk for 8 years where he was the straightman to Monk's craz, which afforded him occasional forays into crazy himself. Most of the rest of his career is putting on elaborate costumes and being beyond weird. Like General 'Bloodbath' McGrath in the Wild Wild West and Ned Brower in the 3rd episode of the current Lethal Weapon series. Often you watch a thing and find out the most interesting character in the movie was Ted Levine under all of the makeup and stuff. He was also the voice of Sinestro in the DCAU. Ted Levine was a lot more than just a pin-up for serial killer fanboys.
