Between myself, @kevinhart4real Jack Black and @NickJonas we've searched far and wide to find the one person to complete our #JUMANJI family. This isn't just any role, but in many ways the most important role of the movie. We had to find a girl. But not just any girl. A girl who has "Chutzpah". Guts, nerve and talent to stand her ground and hold her own against Nick's cool rockstar ways, Jack's relentless energy and genius, Kevin's masterful timing and skills and the big, brown, bald tattooed guy who just simply stands there and oooooozes smoldering, captivating, sizzling, can't take your eyes off this brilliant manly man.. never mind I got drunk on the ol' DJ kool aid again. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm proud to announce a girl who's playing the most important role in our movie – the talented, beautiful and down for a Scottish fight at any time, Ms @KarenGillanOfficial. And yes, this is the girl who is so bad ass she shaved her freaking head for Guardians of the Galaxy. We start production next month in Hawaii and as many of you already know, this isn't a remake or reboot, but a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story we love. Jake "The Snake" Kasdan directing, Matt "OG" Tolmach producing. Yup, I give everyone nicknames. The adventure and fun continues… #JUMANJI #KarenGillan #RESPECT #GingerTough
Sony is slowly but surely stacking the cast of the new Jumanji flick with as many stars as possible. They’re relying on Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Nick Jonas, and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to carry the ‘totally not a remake’ continuation of the original Robin Williams classic of the same name. But – as The Rock pointed himself – they needed to find a girl:
A girl who has “Chutzpah”. Guts, nerve and talent to stand her ground and hold her own against Nick [Jonas]’s cool rockstar ways, Jack [Black]’s relentless energy and genius, Kevin [Hart]’s masterful timing and skills and the big, brown, bald tattooed guy who just simply stands there and oooooozes smoldering, captivating, sizzling, can’t take your eyes off this brilliant manly man..

Karen Gillan shaved her head and kicked ass in Guardians of the Galaxy, traveled through space and time in a police box to fight dinosaurs, daleks, and Venetian vampires on Doctor Who,, and patiently puts up with fanboys and every kind of con imaginable. We’re more than confident Gillan will be able to hold her own against whatever a magical board game can throw at her.
