Rest In Peace: John Hammond Has Left Jurassic Park

August 25, 2014


Richard Attenborough, the actor who played John Hammond in Jurassic Park, has passed away. He was 90. Lord Attenborough didn't just play the inventor of Jurassic Park though, he also acted in such classics as The Great Escape, Brighton Rock and The Miracle on 34th Street. Plus he directed Ghandi, a film that netted him two academy awards. He is the older brother of famed naturalist David Attenborough, who is one of my favorite humans of all time. Rest in peace, Richard, hopefully that great Jurassic Park in the sky runs smoother than the first one.

Thanks to Garfield, who could barely keep his face out of the lasagna long enough to send me the tip.

    Some news called him David Attenborough and I got confused as the images and the name didn't match

    Encase him in amber so he can be brought back to life by aliens for Human Park in a million years!
