Joe Mazzello: From 'Jurassic' to 'Pacific'

Joe Mazzello: From 'Jurassic' to 'Pacific'

Joe Mazzello, best known for his role as Tim Murphy in Jurassic Park, is all grown up – and acting in Stephen Spielberg‘s The Pacific!

The 26-year-old actor, who will play Marine Eugene Sledge in Spielberg‘s 10-part WWII drama on HBO, told Details he went through a seriously intense ten-day boot camp in Australia to prepare for his role.

“Everything kills you there – every plant, every animal. Even you yourself become toxic,” Joe said. “If you touch somebody, you’ll kill them.”

Joe will also appear in next fall’s The Social Network alongside Justin Timberlake.
