One of my favorite cinematic characters of all time is Jurassic Park’s Dr. Ian Malcolm, played by Jeff Goldblum. I have his speech in the famous “lunch room” scene memorized by heart.
So to find out that Goldblum is reprising the role in the upcoming Jurassic World 2 is just such a TREAT for me! He’ll be joining Chris Pratt & Bryce Dallas Howard in the sequel, which is scheduled for a June 22, 2018 release.
Of course, this is not the first time we “see” Malcolm in the Jurassic World-specific continuity. His image appears very briefly on the cover of his book God Creates Dinosaurs:
Ever since I saw Goldblum as The Grandmaster in the recent trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, I was wondering if we were going to see more of him in upcoming movies—and now between this and Wes Anderson’s upcoming Isle Of Dogs I have my answer!
Is this a veritable Goldblum Renaissance? What’s next? Will we see him cameo in a The Fly or Earth Girls Are Easy remake? Perhaps an extended cut of his Apartments.com spots? Whatever happens, I’m sure life will find a way.
