Ain't no party like a Jurassic World casting party, 'cause a Jurassic World party don't stop...

Hot on the heels of the news that future Guardians of the Galaxy space captain is in talks to step into the male lead role vacated by for the long-awaited fourth installment of the dinosaur franchise comes the news that the project is also looking to add the Oscar-baity to its ever-growing cast.

The Wrap reports that the respected Indian-born actor is looking to join the confirmed cast that includes , , and . It's unclear what role Khan would be playing, but after seeing him as calculating and corrupt scientist Rajit Ratha in The Amazing Spider-Man, it wouldn't surprise me to learn he's stepping a scientific or villainous role, if not both.

Khan has appeared in the aforementioned Amazing Spider-Man, along with Life of Pi, Slumdog Millionarie, and The Darjeeling Limited, among others.

Jurassic World is slated for a June 12, 2015 release.
