Haley Joel Osment's Favorite Part Of Playing A Villain On Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous - Exclusive

"Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous" has had no shortage of antagonists over the course of its first four seasons. First and foremost, there's one killer dinosaur after the next, all of whom appear to have a hankering for teenagers. No matter where they go, everything from the Tyrannosaurus rex to the Spinosaurus are lurking about ready to chomp. However, as nature has proven time and time again, the most dangerous predator of all is man. 

That is evident in Season 2 when Tiff (Stephanie Beatriz) and Mitch (Bradley Whitford) caused trouble for the central teens. They seem innocuous at first, but over time, they reveal their true villainous nature, namely acting as big game poachers looking for the ultimate score. No such deception occurs for Season 4 antagonist, Kash (Haley Joel Osment), who presents himself as a terrible guy right from the beginning. 

Osment spoke with Looper in an exclusive interview about his role as Kash. It's a vast departure from the types of characters Osment usually plays, and by the sound of it, he had a blast in the part.

Haley Joel Osment had 'so much fun' voicing Kash

Kash is smarmy from the moment the audience meets him in "Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous." It's clear he's only interested in power and money, and he's willing to kill as many dinosaurs as he needs to in order to get his way. He causes the teens a bunch of trouble, almost resulting in their deaths, and to almost everyone's surprise, he doesn't wind up a dino-meal by the end of the season. That means there should be more Kash on the way, but even if there wasn't, Osment put his all into the role, resulting in one of the best additions the show has seen in a while. 

When asked about what it was like to play a guy like Kash, Osment quickly responded, "So much fun." It seems to be a common trait among actors to love playing the bad guy, as he goes on to say, "I think a lot of actors will say that some of the most fun they have is playing these sort of amoral, villainous characters and doing it on a voiceover project is great. Because you can really kind of go for it in expressing all of his rages and pathologies, just using your voice."

Osment covers a lot of ground as Kash. From rage-screaming to manipulating others for his own self-interest, Osment brings a sinister edge to the role that makes Kash all too real, and it's exciting to think where the character could go for Season 5. 

Season 4 of "Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous" is now streaming on Netflix.
