He was the best thing in Igby, very creepy-convincing.


Absolutely. But you can't forget Russell, the performance artist.


I suppose I only did because in a welter of over the top performances he wasn't so noticeable.

But damn you, JB, use me.

That was good.

Besides being a great actor, he's one of those people with a great voice. Akin to the likes of Jack Nicholson and Owen Wilson.

He's an actor, who like the aforementioned, I will go to see regardless of the film. Plus I'm as tall as Mr Goldblum.

JURASSIC PARK QUATTRO - Guess who will be back!
Hey folks, Harry here... Ok... what do we know about JURASSIC PARK 4 so far? We know that hotter than J. Lo's ass Writer William Monahan has been writing the script from an original story by Stephen Spielberg. We know that it will not take place in the jungle or any "green" environment. We know that Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum are on board. We know that Stan Winston's crew are in heavy design mode for the film. We know that there should be a ton of new breeds of dinos, and that Steven has apparently been mining Crichton's original novel for more unused material ( the river sequence? ) Lastly... we know it is set for SUMMER 2005. Well now we know this...
Hi. I was listening to BBC 5 radio station and Sir Richard Attenborough (sp) was talking about his career etc. He stated that Steven Speilberg had contacted him about Jurassic Park 4, which SIr Richard said he would do.

Onks.

Goldblum mixes fact, fiction in 'Pittsburgh'
Source: Hollywood Reporter

Jeff Goldblum and his hometown of Pittsburgh, whether it likes it or not, have combined to create a surprising summer delight.

"Pittsburgh" is a witty variation on a Christopher Guest mockumentary that swirls together fiction, reality and an unlikely cast including Goldblum, Ed Begley Jr., Illeana Douglas, Moby, Conan O'Brien and unsuspecting Pittsburghers, all as themselves.

Goldblum, who first contemplated taking advantage of video technology for some sort of personal project about six years ago, says he didn't want to create a film as mundane or revealing as a journal.

Instead, he and his collaborators ended up with an approach that owes a tip of the hat not only to Guest ("Waiting for Guffman," "Best in Show") but also, as Goldblum sees it, to the spontaneity of directors John Cassavetes and Robert Altman.

"It's not like we've discovered a new planet," Goldblum said. "But I thought the way we tried to skin it is a little bit different than anybody else. The tone we hit and somehow the way it came together and what we tried to do, I thought, was pretty nifty."

Making its TV debut Sunday on Starz Cinema and out in September on DVD, "Pittsburgh" follows Goldblum, 54, as he takes on the starring role in a Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera production of "The Music Man," a daring move for an actor known for his acting, not singing and dancing.

(Goldblum is hosting the film on the Starz Cinema channel, along with weekend showings of the Dixie Chicks documentary "Shut Up and Sing" and "The Heart of the Game.")

The plot of "Pittsburgh" has Goldblum tackling "The Music Man" out of love, both for the venerable musical and for his fiancee, Catherine Wreford, a Canadian actress who must get a job or risk losing her visa.

Why not sell themselves as a package to the trusting folks of Pittsburgh, a hometown boy made good (a Hollywood movie star! "Jurassic Park"! "The Fly"!) and his lovely girlfriend with an impressive voice, thus benefiting both the city and the couple?

And how about roping in friends, Begley and Douglas, to appear in the show and, helpfully, in Goldblum's video project?

What could have been a raging exercise in ego or Pittsburgh-bashing turns out to be a winning combination of Goldblum's sly, offbeat charm and deft improv as the celebrities involved neatly skewer themselves. The civilians escape unscathed.

In a scene in which the story meanders into the life of Douglas and Moby, who are portrayed as a couple, the musician jumps in with abandon. Meeting Goldblum, Moby casually says he hasn't bothered to see any of Douglas' work but he IS a film buff: "I like amateur porn," Moby offers as Douglas squirms.

When environmental activist Begley hits up Goldblum to help promote his latest passion -- a (fictional?) portable solar power device -- the pair film a spot in which Goldblum is reluctantly shown hoisting a travel coffee mug bearing the Solar Man logo.

"Get a jolt from a clean volt!" Goldblum dutifully recites. Then he can't help himself: He asks to do another take, and then another.

"Pittsburgh" also offers the fun of unraveling a puzzle. Unlike Guest's comedies, some of what happens in "Pittsburgh" is real -- or at least that's what Goldblum claims.

All evidence considered (including polite reviews), he and Wreford did appear in "The Music Man" in Pittsburgh for two weeks in 2004. Goldblum says he explained away the camera that accompanied them by saying it was for a home video.

But as he picks through instances of truth vs. fiction for an interviewer, there's a sneaking feeling he's extending the film's shell game.

Goldblum swears to the following: That he was engaged to Wreford, that she did have immigration worries, that he's always loved the Meredith Willson play, that the couple presented as his colorful mother and stepfather are, indeed, his colorful mother and stepfather.

The play's director really did tell musical theater novice Goldblum, not long before "The Music Man" started its two-week run, that (gulp) he was taking his character of Professor Harold Hill completely in the wrong direction.

"A quirky mixture of documentary and improvised fiction, 'Pittsburgh' has generated a buzz," was the diplomatic e-mail reply from Van Kaplan, executive producer for the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, when asked for comment on the film.

Ask Goldblum what Wreford, now his ex-fiancee, thinks about it, and he murmurs in poetically indirect Goldblumesque fashion that "we sort of drifted apart, although very sweetly." He has heard rumors that she may have left show business and is selling mortgages.

Oh, c'mon, Mr. Goldblum, that extremely gifted young woman, who's done Broadway musicals, appeared in several movies and has one, "The Metrosexual," in the can? And in this credit crisis? We're not that gullible.

"I may be wrong. But I hear she's doing very well, one way or another."
