On Tuesday, Universal Pictures released the trailer for Jurassic World, the fourth installment of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park series, and if you blink, you may miss seeing Brian Tee in action.

Starring Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt, the sci-fi action-adventure film takes place 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park and is set in a “fully functional” dinosaur theme park that was originally envisioned by John Hammond. As tourist attendance rates begin to dip, the park’s researchers decide to create a new attraction, a genetically-modified hybrid dinosaur. However, things quickly backfire when the bloodthirsty hybrid escapes from the labs and runs amok in the packed park.

A few months ago, pages from the Jurassic World script were leaked online and introduced Brian Tee’s character, a 52 year-old “greying Japanese badass” named Katashi Hamada. In the excerpt, Hamada warns the other characters about the danger of feeding the new hybrid dinosaur live animals–hinting that once the creature tastes living flesh, it will never seek alternative food sources.

“Trust me. You don’t want this animal to taste things that move and bleed,” Hamada says, ending his badass monologue.

Jurassic World is slated to be released on June 12, 2015.
