Jeff Goldblum Honored With Walk of Fame Star
Jeff Goldblum is officially the 2,638th actor to earn a star on the Walk of Fame, but he’s arguably one who holds a special place within the nerd community. After starring in franchises like Jurassic Park, Independence Day, and The Fly, Jeff Goldblum has gone on to have a pretty varied filmography, including a recent appearance in Thor: Ragnarok.
While his character, The Grandmaster, was left in a pretty surprising place at the end of Thor: Ragnarok, it sounds like Goldblum is hopeful about reprising his role in some capacity.
“I don’t know. Who knows,” Jeff Goldblum said in a recent interview. “They’ve got a good imagination. Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, and Victora Alonso over there, they know what they’re doing. They make good movies. Well, see if I could contribute anything to what they were doing. I imagine this, that my brother, the Collector played by Benicio del Toro, maybe they see us together. I don’t know. Who knows but my character can do anything. I’ve got my super powers than all of them put together.”
“I’m the Grandmaster! You can’t kill me,” Jeff Goldblum continued. “I can do everything. I can fly. I can do all sort of thing, really. So all I want to do is play games but I could do anything.”
Jeff Goldblum said “For whatever reason, I seem to be in a growth spurt. I’m just bursting with gratitude that things have worked out.”
The current surge includes an honor that may or may not rank higher than being declared the Internet’s Boyfriend: a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on June 14. It comes in the midst of a busy season for the 65-year-old actor; he’s still promoting Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs” around the world, just recorded a jazz album and has “Hotel Artemis” now in theaters. On June 22, he will open the floodgates for more comments when he reprises his character of Dr. Ian Malcolm in “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.”
