Jake Johnson was in both New Girl and Jurassic World. Obviously this means that Nick took to heart Ernest Hemingway’s belief that experience is essential to good writing and ran with it, getting a job as an IT professional in the control room on Isla Nublar for a theme park. Nick believed that this real world experience, while not particularly interesting or exciting, would give him some insight into how the average person lives. His plan was wrecked when the theme park got taken over by crazy dinosaurs and he was forced to scramble to keep people alive during the chaos. This experience didn’t help him identify with the common person, so Nick was left with nothing to write about afterwards.
