A lot of studios and movie creatives have been hosting Watchalong Events and Watch Parties from the comforts of streaming at home. Now, IGN and Universal have teamed up for one of the coolest Q&A events announced yet. Original Jurassic Park star Joseph Mazzello will be participating in a special Watch From Home Theater event this coming Thursday.
Universal Pictures, Amblin Entertainment and IGN have teamed up to bring Jurassic Park to IGN's Watch From Home Theater - a weekly live show where some of your favorite IGN personalities are united with special celebrity guests to have a digital movie night together with you, watching some of our favorite films of all time.
This Thursday, April 23rd at 5 p.m. PT, They're watching Steven Spielberg's iconic and ultimate thrill ride, Jurassic Park with special guest and original cast member Joseph Mazzello, who played Tim Murphy. Since his breakout role as the dinosaur-loving preteen grandson of John Hammond, Mazzello has gone on to star in The Pacific, The Social Network, G.I. Joe: Retaliation and, most recently, as Queen bassist John Deacon in the Academy Award-winning Bohemian Rhapsody. Says Mazzello about the big event.
"While we all continue to sit tight and wait for these scary and uncertain times to eventually be behind us, my favorite way to escape the worry and pass the time has been by watching classic films, and in my completely unbiased opinion, Jurassic Park is one of the all-time greats. I can't wait to join together with other fans to celebrate this iconic film and share the stories, insight, and fond and funny memories I collected while playing 'Tim Murphy.' It's gonna be a blast!"
