It’s no secret that we love all things Jurassic Park. While we might not be as big a superfan as some, we are definite fans… especially of the original. Well, Sam Neill and Ewan McGregor (along with Spy actress Miranda Hart) just made our dinosaur dreams come true when they reenacted the famous brachiosaurus scene from Jurassic Park, and we can’t stop laughing:
Ewan McGregor and Sam Neill were on the BBC’s The Graham Norton Show, and Sam Neill spilled some behind the scenes information about what it was like to shoot that iconic blockbuster.Apparently, when shooting the famous brachiosaurus scene, his face of astonishment was actually him looking at “Steven Spielberg with a big long stick with a tennis ball at the end.”
Well, that’s an image we’ll never get out of our head.
For comparison, here’s the scene from the film:
Over thirty years later and Sam Neill still can replicate that same look!He’s a fantastic actor, and for those of you who haven’t seen one of his latest endeavors, we highly recommend The Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Sam Neill slays in that. Ewan McGregor, aka Mr. Dinosaur Sounds in The Graham Norton Show clip, is now directing, and his film, American Pastoral, (an adaptation of the Philip Roth novel), is coming to theaters soon.
Until then, we’ll just be re-watching Jurassic Park.
