If dinosaurs lived among us, how long do you think you could survive It’s one of those fun hypothetical questions we throw around, but since Jurassic World Dominion opens this week, it might be food for thought.
And it’s something we wanted to hear from Jeff Goldblum himself. At the Jurassic World Dominion press conference in May, we asked Jeff this question and he thinks he’ll get by with any luck.
The 69-year-old actor said: “Well, gosh, I’m a lucky guy. I don’t know why. Until now, sometimes I’ve crossed the street when I shouldn’t have. And I don’t.” I know, I’ve been lucky.
I’ve never been around big animals, so I’ve never had an experience like that… Our dog Woody, who’s a big standard poodle, well, he’s very powerful. You know, all the animals are so athletic and he can run 10 times faster than me But I haven’t had a bad run-in with him. So maybe there’s something about me that’s lucky. So maybe it would work out for me I hope so.
In Dominion, Jeff reprises his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm from the Jurassic Park films and will be joined on-screen by fellow original cast members Laura Dern (Ellie Sattler) and Sam Neill (Alan Grant).
I was so excited. You could have knocked me down with a feather. Is that the expression?” he laughed and continued, This franchise, these movies in ’93 were spectacularly enjoyable for me… and then working with Laura Dern and Sam Neill back then, it changed my life.
Jeff called the role a landmark moment and said he learned a lot from working with director Steven Spielberg. Although he eventually “became less focused on my so-called career”, he came to realize over time that Jurassic Park was a good thing to have done. He shared, “I think it made a huge difference. And then of course seeing people come up to me over the last two decades and being so excited to have seen it… That’s a really beautiful and life-enhancing thing.” have experienced.
