Sitting down with Jeff Goldblum is just as delightful as you would expect it to be. The Jurassic Park and Independence Day star endlessly affable and wonderfully quirky. When I sat down with Goldblum on the set of Independence Day: Resurgence last year, he began by asking my name, and ran through “Six Degrees” connection from my name to him through actors and movies. Sadly, not all of it was recorded, but it’s probably one of the best things that has happened to me.
Anyway, after all that was done, we talked about him reuniting with director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin. This time his character David Levinson doesn’t accidentally become humanity’s last hope to defeat the aliens as he’s been named the director of Earth Space Defense. And Goldblum says that it’s his character’s inherent and organic love for the planet that drives his outside-of-the-box thinking to help keep it safe.
Plus, since it took 20 years for him to return to Independence Day, what are the odds that the 20th anniversary of The Lost World: Jurassic Park coming up next year will convince him to deal with some dinosaurs again? Find out in the Jeff Goldblum interview below. Read More »

One of the most interesting aspects of Independence Day: Resurgence is how this sequel is making it very clear that the original film wasn’t just made in 1996 – it took place in 1996. The new film takes place in 2016, twenty years after the release of Independence Day for real audiences and twenty years after that gigantic alien invasion that killed millions of people for the characters in the film. However, their 2016 is not our 2016. It’s different world altogether, an alternate science fiction timeline that saw world history go in a very different direction than our own. A lot of crazy stuff happened.
