Wayne Knight to Spielberg: Put Me In "Jurassic Park IV!"

Dennis Nedry was presumed dead after a battle with a dastardly dilophosaurus in "Jurassic Park" -- but actor Wayne Knight still wants in on the upcoming "Jurassic Park IV."

Knight, who currently stars on TV Land's "The Exes," spoke to toofab's Brian Particelli and a small group of journalists at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego, where he revealed how Nedry could still fit into the picture.

"It was a very big meal and a very small dinosaur," he said when toofab asked about appearing in the upcoming flick. "It was different from the book. In the book he crushes his head and all this kinda stuff. I'm thinking, why not play a one-armed guy with an eye patch? I could come back!"

During the chat, Knight revealed that the deadly dino venom was made from KY jelly, which was dyed black -- and says his most memorable moment from the film was getting cast in it in the first place.

"The biggest moment, best moment was getting cast because it was out of nowhere," says Knight. "My agent said, 'Are you sitting down? Steven Spielberg called, he wants to put you in Jurassic Park.' I didnt audition for it. I think he saw me sweating and staring closely at Sharon Stone [in 'Basic Instinct'] and thought, 'What if that were a dinosaur?'"

We're not sure which is more deadly...
