Life finds a way, and so does Jeff Goldblum, who played Chaos Theory mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park before toplining the first sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park. The character was sadly absent from Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World (although he was mentioned) but now he's back and better than ever for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Like co-stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the Thor: Ragnarok scene-stealer was on hand during the press junket for the Jurassic World sequel, where Goldblum proved he may be the most amazing human being ever by offering to sing at SYFY WIRE's Whitney Moore's wedding. Not only that, he then proceeded to give her a sneak peek of the song he would sing.
Since it's now been 25 years since Jurassic Park first came out, Goldblum was asked if he'd had any idea of the cultural impact he would ultimately have — including that laugh.
"I like to laugh it up here and there," Goldblum admitted. "Yeah, people have latched on to that; but what a cultural influence has Michael Crichton had, who wrote that first book. And Steven Spielberg, who knows how to talk to the world of cinemagoers and tell a story. And J.A. Bayona, who directed this, and Colin Trevorrow. It's in the hands of some brilliant people now."
We also asked Goldblum if he could engineer his own dinosaur, what would he call it? What would it do? What would his special skills be? Well, that dinosaur would both be practical and FUN. Moreover, he weighed in on his chances of appearing in Jurassic World III, which is set for a 2021 release.
Find out what he had to say in our exclusive video and let us know if you plan on returning to the island of Isla Nublar when Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom roars into movie theaters on June 22.
