Actor Jeff Goldblum, who played the mathematician Dr Ian Malcolm in the first two “Jurassic Park” films, said that he will have a small role in “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”. The 65-year-old actor said that his character will not be too involved in what the upcoming film has to offer.
“It’s small… Who knows, they may cut me out entirely! But if I stay in I’ll be a sprig of parsley or a little garnish, hopefully with some impact!” Goldblum teased during the Empire Podcast. Featuring new series regulars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the film is slated to release on June 22 next year.
Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm was a supporting character in the original Jurassic Park film. In the second installment Jurassic Park: The Lost World, he was the primary character. The tagline of the second installment in the Jurassic World series “Life finds a way” is taken from a line his character spoke in the original film while he was discussing feasibility of having cloned dinosaurs roaming around on the island (Isla Nublar).
In Jurassic World, B.D. Wong appeared from the original film. He had played Dr. Henry Wu, the chief geneticist and head of the team that cloned dinosaurs.
Meanwhile, Jeff Goldblum will appear in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film Thor: Ragnarok. It is the third installment in the Thor series and the 17th installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Goldblum plays a character called Grandmaster, one of the Elders and the ruler of a planet called Sakaar. It is his character who oversees the gladiatorial duel between Thor and Hulk.
