Actor Diona Reasonover can next be seen starring on TBS’ brand new comedy “Clipped” as Charmaine, a hairstylist whose dry humor, sharp personality and observant mannerisms radiate throughout the barbershop.
Aside from her work on “Clipped,” Diona performs regularly at UCB on the Maude team Bombardier, as well as at Second City. She’s appeared on VH1, Disney, ShaneDawson TV and Funny or Die, and she has been featured in numerous commercials. She also does the best Whoopi Goldberg impression you’ve ever seen. Find her on IMDb, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
It sounds like Matt’s genetic engineering program re-invented the Flintstones.
Didn’t even think of that. There should be dishwasher dinosaurs too.
I think one of the thing that marked me the most is the assistant and her gruesome ending.
The character had the worst day ever.
She was stuck babysitting her boss nephews (who are only semi-tolerable)
She lost them for hours
Personally I think Jurassic World is about how information doesn’t flow well in a massive corporation. I mean Masrani is so massive the CEO doesn’t know what he own, nobody knowns about the property of the Irex which cause massive disaster and the compagny so big that D’infnorifo can have his little fief.
Ended up drown and eaten by Dino
I completely agree. This film is all about how a complex system like a billion dollar corporation will eventually fall apart due to an inability to predict unforeseen problem. Which is exactly what Ian Malcolm’s Chaos Theory was all about.
As it was mentioned twice I feel it should be pointed out that apparently this film had a cameo from Jimmy Buffet. He’s on scene for a second. He’s the guy carrying two margaritas.
That’s got to be a top-10 action movie celebrity cameo, if not all time, then at least of the last couple decades.
Ian Malcom’s book is on “Jurassic T-Shirt” guys desk. He does make several references to ‘chaos’.
Lore Check: Technically “Red Dawn” was the first PG-13 movie. “Temple of Doom” was released with a PG rating but it’s violence inspired the subsequent creation of PG-13.
Frankly when the T-Rex and the Raptor had just finished off the I-Rex… I was expecting a ‘Fist Bump’.
I remember reading about Diana in this article: http://www.glamour.com/entertainment/2014/09/why-are-there-so-few-black-characters-on-tv-shows
It’s great to hear the she has a new show.
I am watching Jurassic Park right now and “Jurassic Tennis” is one of the slides on in the background when they are having dinner!
Here’s a still of that scene:
