MegaCon 2018: Jeff Goldblum talks Ian Malcolm, returning for ‘Jurassic World 2’ and that ‘Jurassic Park’ shirtless scene

During a panel at MegaCon, Jeff Goldblum talked about his famous Jurassic Park role, Ian Malcolm, and bringing the character back for the Jurassic World sequel: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

“I love playing Ian Malcolm, he’s one fun character,” Goldblum said, then theorized about what his character has been doing: “…I think he’s been writing some books while he’s been retired from the Dino business.”

Chris Pratt, Bryce-Dallas Howard, and B.D. Wong reprise their roles from Jurassic World. Goldblum makes a highly anticipated return as Dr. Ian Malcolm from the original Jurassic Park series.

The cast is rounded out by James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, and Isabella Sermon.

The Q&A was more about tweets and ideologies than audience participation. A couple of highlights centered about the parody box of Life cereal featuring Goldblum: “Life uhhh…finds a way.”

He confessed he was surprised and then they pressed on the shirtless scene from Jurassic Park.

“Yea, I’m not sure why that happened. It wasn’t scripted just happened and (Steven) Spielberg let it happen.”

Speaking to Yahoo back in March, Goldblum revealed what was really going on: “It’s supposed to be Costa Rica, right? So, things are hot and I’m sure I’m in some sort of fever. So, all the logic is that we gotta get some of these wet clothes off immediately. As I remember, I don’t think anybody fought me on that.”

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens in theaters on June 22, 2018.

Official synopsis:

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment.  Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.  Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission.  Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before.  Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Stars Pratt and Howard return alongside executive producers Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.  They are joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall and Isabella Sermon, while BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles.

Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), the epic action-adventure is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly.  Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again partner with Spielberg and Trevorrow in leading the filmmakers for this stunning installment.  Belén Atienza joins the team as a producer.  www.jurassicworld.com
