Jurassic Park Series

Joseph Mazzello played the character of Tim Murphy in the 1993 movie Jurassic Park, when he was 9. He received the part after it was promised to him by Steven Spielberg because he was turned down for the role of Jack Banning in Hook for being too young.

Because Jurassic Park had popularised dinosaurs the surnames of its main actors were used to make the species name of the Tianchisaurus genus. The species name has become nedegoapeferima, in which the last two letters, ma are the first two letters of Mazzello.

Joseph also made a cameo appearance as Tim Murphy in The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
