Actors in the Lime: Jeff Goldblum

Well, if you’re any kind of a prophet you probably saw this coming. I made the Director Spotlights so I’ve got to do something for actors. The first one is quirky actor Jeff Goldblum. He played mathematician (chaotician, CHAOTICIAN, actually) in Steven Spielberg’s excellent science fiction films Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park: The Lost World. He also played David Levinson in Roland Emmerich’s blockbuster Independence Day (good, solid summer fun if you haven’t seen it yet). However, after 1997, he kind of fell from star status. He receded into the background. He’s still a very solid actor, however. He brings to life so many quirky quotes, and his character Ian Malcolm is unforgettable. Perhaps his most famous Jurassic Park line, as he walks up to a pile of dino-droppings: “That is one big pile of s**t.”

Personally, I think he would be an excellent choice to play the Riddler, should the sequel to The Dark Knight actually get made. He has the quirkyness yet intelligence to do very well in that kind of role. (The Riddler was never a Joker-like character in the comics, by the way.) He’d be TONS better than the overrated Johnny Depp, as much as I like him.

    I think he is an underrated actor. But recently I saw a commercial with him in it. I think he just took a role in one of the “law and order” series.

Quote of the Amount of Time I Want to Leave it Up Here

"I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've seen C-Beams... glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost... like tears... in rain. Time... to die." ~Roy Batty (Blade Runner)
