then and now: CAST of JURASSIC PARK (1993)

One of my all-time favorite movies (as you'll likely note as the Top 100 countdown soldiers on), has got to be Steven Spielberg's underrated and downright fun blockbuster, Jurassic Park. It has amazing rewatchability, it's buoyed by some great line readings from a stellar, if random, cast of characters, and it's adapted very well from the fantastic and original novel by Michael Crichton. So take a look below to see your favorite ragtag group of dinosaur-enthusiasts in their early work, as well as some of their recent work.
