Jeff Goldblum To Ring In The New Year Behind Piano

According to an Indian news site Jeff Goldblum will be ringing in the new year (2010) behind the piano at a hip Hollywood club. The club was not named and I wasn't able to find any other news about the "event." Sounds like a fun New Years Eve to me though. If you happen upon any more info, don't forget to send it my way.

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 and... 3?

With Emmerich's 2012 currently in theaters, the talk has inevitable turned back to his other films which include one of our favorite Jeff blockbusters, Independence Day. In a recent interview Emmerich talked about the possibility of not only one Independence Day sequel, but TWO. It's already been said that it won't happen without Will Smith, but what about Jeff? No word yet whether the beloved David Levinson will return.

Several Law and Order Stars Leaving to Make Room For GOLDBLUM

Here's a mystery. What is "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" without stars Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe and Eric Bogosian?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, all three will exit during the upcoming ninth season. (Yes, it's been that long. But really, who's counting?)

VIDEOS: Jeff Goldblum on the Rachael Ray Show (April 2009)

This is a bit old (from April), but I wasn't aware of it at the time. Luckily a fellow fan, Katrina, sent it my way.

Click here to see video #1 of Jeff playing the piano on the Rachael Ray Show

When Jeff Goldblum stops by, Rachael creates a special dish just for him called Golden Blum Chicken. But before he can sink his teeth into it, he has to "sing for his supper." After wowing them with some impromptu playing, Jeff explains that he learned to play the piano from his mom, who first gave him lessons when he was in third grade. "Then I started to play jazz, and it's been a hobby of mine since then," Jeff says. "For the last several years, I started to play out and about in Los Angeles. I have a jazz group with really great musicians -- we call ourselves the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra."

He's also currently appearing as Det. Zach Nichols on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Rachael tells Jeff how much she loves all the Law & Order shows, and gets him to comment on a few memorable films from his career:

The Fly: "I love that movie. It's sexy and sweet and sad and romantic."

The Big Chill: "Friends, togetherness -- fun, fun, fun!"

Independence Day: "It was the first time they put an ad spot during the Super Bowl to promo the movie and we thought, 'Is anybody going to see this?', but it was a popular movie."

Annie Hall: "I had a little part in that. I loved that. I'm about to do movie with Diane Keaton called The Morning Glory."

Death Hoax Helped Goldblum Reconnect With Old Friends

GOLDBLUM 'TOUCHED' BY DEATH STORIES

Actor JEFF GOLDBLUM draws positives from the false reports he died last month (JUN09) - because they helped him reconnect with old friends.
Reports surfaced online last month (Jun09) claiming the Jurassic Park star had been killed on the set of his latest movie in New Zealand - just hours after Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett died.
Goldblum's publicist was quick to blast the rumours, branding them "completely untrue", while reps for Britney Spears and George Clooney have also had to fight off similar claims.
The actor insists he wasn't upset by the hoax, and has even credited the reckless media with helping him get back in touch with old pals.
He says, "This was a rare opportunity to experience your own death. (Fans) still run into me on the street (and say), 'Glad to see you're alive!' I reconnected with people I hadn't seen in a long time. I wasn't angry I was touched."

And just in case you can't get the video to load, here's what Jeff had to say:
"No one will miss Jeff Goldblum more than me," he said. "He was not only a friend and a mentor, but he was also, um, me. Jeff Goldblum's performances combined the muscularity of Brando, the pathos of Streep and the musky sensuality of a pride of baboons.

Jeff Goldblum Subject of Hoax Last Night (JEFF GOLDBLUM IS NOT DEAD!)

In case you fell for any of the supposed hoaxes last night of Jeff Goldblum's death (I actually did not know anything about them until after the fact), Jeff Goldblum is NOT dead!

“Reports that Jeff Goldblum has passed away are completely untrue,” said the actor’s publicist in a statement Thursday night. “He is fine and in Los Angeles.”

Whoever decided to start this rumor is a sick disgusting person!

Apparently...
False rumours that Jeff Goldblum and Harrison Ford both died while filming in New Zealand are still making the rounds. An Australian entertainment TV reporter when to air with the "news" of Goldblum's death.

(It turns out the same cliff that had "claimed" Goldblum's life was also responsible for the earlier "deaths" of Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise. See Snopes.com for the full history of this internet-spread cut-and-paste obit.)

SOURCE

We of course know that Jeff is currently filming "Morning Glory" which is being shot in NYC - NOT New Zealand!


I just want to say that I hope Jeff has a very long wonderful life and I hope people stop perpetuating this pathetic rumor...


Long Live Jeff!

Michelle Pfeiffer Quotes Goldblum

Michelle Pfeiffer, who played alongside Jeff Goldblum in "Into The Night" is working on a new movie called "Cheri." In a recent interview, she quoted Jeff:

"I'm sort of coining this from Jeff Goldblum, but I remember him saying that his advice to actors starting out was if there isn't anything else in the world that you can do then become an actor," she said. "It's something that I just have to do, and I'm not sure that you can really explain why that is."

Jimmy Fallon introduces Drunk Goldblum to Jeff Goldblum



Friday night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy discussed the Internet phenomenon called Drunk Goldblum with its target, actor Jeff Goldblum, who is quite tickled by it.
The premise is simple (and ridiculous): Someone slowed down an Apple computer TV ad to half speed, which makes it sound like Goldblum is drunk.

Jeff Goldblum On The Set Of Morning Glory

I've added a whole batch of new shots from the set of Morning Glory to the album. Check it out here.

Thanks to Michelle for sending them to me.

Rachel McAdams And Jeff Goldblum: Hard At Work



They may be an unlikely on-screen pairing, but earlier today (June 8) Rachel McAdams and Jeff Goldblum were spotted working on their new film “Morning Glory.”

The “Jurassic Park” stud and the “Notebook” babe looked intense and focused as they filmed scenes on the New York City set.




“Morning Glory” is about an old-school anchorman who quits his longtime evening newscast because of its new, gossipy ways and is recruited by a hotshot producer who’s looking to revive a failing morning show.

And it looks like a sure-to-be hit thanks to an ensemble cast that includes Harrison Ford, Patrick Wilson, and Diane Keaton.

The Mystery of The Missing IMDb Page: Producers Scrapped Jurassic Park 4? Is there hope?

The following is from IMDb.com:

Producers Scrap Jurassic Park 4
9 December 2008 8:13 AM, PST | From wenn.com | See recent WENN news


Movie producers have ruled out a fourth Jurassic Park blockbuster - because the story died with author Michael Crichton.

The sci-fi writer passed away in November aged 66 after losing his battle against cancer.

And moviemakers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy have made no further progress with plans for another film in the franchise - because Crichton's death was "a sign" for them to walk away from the idea.

When asked by reporters from CelebrityTruth.com if there has been any development on a fourth Jurassic Park movie, Kennedy answered "No" before adding: "I don't know. You know, when Crichton passed away, I sorta felt maybe that's it. Maybe that's a sign that we don't mess with it."



Jurassic Park 4" is Dead
10 December 2008 2:40 PM, PST | From www.ohmygore.com/ | See recent OhMyGore news

The rumors of "Jurassic Park 4" started with laughable cyborg robots with guns and then came word that it would get a 2009 start date shortly after. Sadly today comes news that "Jurassic Park 4" is very much dead. And no the rumors of cyborg dinosaurs were not true. They had planned a "Jurassic Park 4" but because of the death of Michael Crichton they have decided its likely not a good idea. In an interview with ComingSoon Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy revealed it was probably a better idea to leave the film franchise alone. What do you think? Another sequel? Or leave it alone? ...


Jurassic Park 4 Not So Dead
9 December 2008 4:07 PM, PST | From cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news

Yesterday here producer Frank Marshall, one of the people in charge of getting the long rumored fourth Jurassic Park off the ground, spoke about the future of his dinos. He didn't see one. Marshall made it pretty clear that he didn't see any point in continuing to try and do another movie, and so we all ran out and sadly declared the Jp franchise dead. Not so fast. It seems that even though Marshall is no longer interested in making Jurassic Park 4, Universal Pictures still is. According to Hr, though Universal has decided not to renew it's production deal with Frank Marshall, they still have both he and his producing partner Kathleen Kennedy working on Jurassic Park 4 and Bourne 4 for them. This actually confirms something we heard from one of our sources last week, that Universal is getting involved and is keen to get another dino movie done.

Jeff Goldblum was on the set of "The Baster" this afternoon (May 14) in New York City. Unfortunately, there weren't any pictures. ;)

There hasn't been too much news on Jeff lately, but I have noticed that - unlike previously - everyone seems to know who "Jeff Goldblum" is now. I don't have to explain... "You know, the tall guy in Jurassic Park... With the glasses?" And I am sure this has to do with his joining the cast of Law and Order. I am very glad he is really in the publics eye again. They were even playing Independence Day at the grocery store rental section yesterday. My congrats to Jeff.

IMDb Pitched JP4?

So, a few months ago Jurassic Park 4 was on IMDb with Laura Dern confirmed for a part. Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neil were only rumored. Today, I went to check it again and it's gone. The movie had been rumored for 2009 or 2010, but no plot or title had been confirmed. Now IMDb has removed the page.

Just wondering, does anyone have any news on this? I hope the rumors will pick up again and eventually amount to something. I miss Dr. Malcolm!

New York Post: Jeff Goldblum talks about working in New York

JEFF Goldblum, new detective on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," is thrilled to be working in New York.

"First of all, this production is such a well-organized, well-oiled machine. The script comes polished, in perfect shape, hits the design team on time, the sets then get done -- everything is slotted. Nothing's slipshod. They all know exactly what they're doing.

"They pamper me. I have a special trailer. They arrange foods I like. Sometimes they order in from The Pump for my brown rice, egg whites and chicken.

"So when I arrived, they'd already lined up apartments for me to see. And I picked a two-bedroom rental near Chelsea Piers, where we shoot. They even found me a nice cleaning lady who comes in once a week.

"I mean, where else but New York can you find the most diverse people in captivity? I even watched Ric Burns' 1999 PBS project 'New York: A Documentary Film.' It's a box set. Eight parts, including experts like Rudy Giuliani, Ed Koch, Mario Cuomo, who tell you all about New York City. You've got to see it."

Considering he lives in LA and I live here, I wasn't sure I needed lessons on the city but -- being forever kindly and gracious -- I kept my mouth shut.

Although written with its own individual personality, his character essentially is Chris Noth's role. "I didn't know Chris before, but he came to the set to wish me luck. Look, he's done this part a long time, and I'm a humble student of the genre. I was glad to meet him. I'm a fan."

FIRST LOOK: Goldblum's 'CSI'

After the season's over, Jeff is staying put. "I'm shooting 'The Baster' with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman right here. In fact, after this phone call I have to go over for their costume fitting. Then, 'Morning Glory' with Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams. That shoots here, too. So I have the apartment until the end of summer. I plan to continue spending as much time here as I can."

So he's all set except maybe for a lovely local type lady?

"I'm on my own at the moment. Right now my focus and passion is on this show."

HOLLYWOOD INSIDER: Jeff Goldblum Talks Law & Order: Criminal Intent’s New Detective and More!


Yesterday, Jeff Goldblum took a half-hour out of his busy shooting day to talk with a number of bloggers/journalists about his role as Detective Zach Nichols on the new season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent [USA, Sundays, 9/8C]. Goldblum, it turns out, is as intelligent and intuitive as his character.



Also taking part in the Q&Q session were: Jamie Ruby [Media Blvd], Jamie Steinberg [Starry Constellation], Julie Kissane [popculturemadness.com], Christine Nyholm [Examiner], Joshua Fulghum [totallyher.com], Troy Rogers [thedeadbolt.com], and Zach Oat [televisionwithoutpity.com].


J. Ruby: I actually am not that far from Pittsburgh myself so I’m curious, since I’m interested in it, too, how did you get started in acting?

J. Goldblum: Hello to you from almost Pittsburgh. I always wanted to do it; my parents took us to see some children’s theater I remember, early on at the Pittsburgh Playhouse. Even though I was very little I got kind of the bug. I was very excited being around theater and wondered what are those actors doing backstage and I was very excited about it.

And then there’s this thing in Pittsburgh, I think it’s still going on. It’s at Chatham, Music Day Camp it’s called; in the summers for six weeks between fifth and sixth grades and another year, maybe the year before that, too, during the summers I had the most magical time ever going to this thing and going from softball to arts and crafts and piano. I already had started playing piano then to this drama course. At the end of this drama course actually I took part in this recital and my father, my parents had already wisely said if you find something you love to do that might be a key to your vocation. After this show they cast me as this kind of lead in this funny little show and after that I had such an exhilarating time of it I remember, they were there. They said, “How did you like that?” I was like yes, that was really something and I kept it secret to myself just how much I loved it, but I think from that time on around fifth grade I thought to myself that’s what I want to do.

Then between ninth and tenth and tenth and eleventh grades I went to Carnegie Mellon University and they had six-week sessions for people and I remember looking through the catalog with my parents. They said, “What do you want to do?” There was art and I had painted and taken some art classes and had some talent in that. And I was playing piano. They said, “What do you want to do, this music program here? Do you want to do the art program?” I was like, “What if I did the one for actors?” It had kind of been a secret.

And so I did that, fell wildly more in love, several steps down the road in my soul and heart and blood and system toward being obsessed with and convinced and passionate about being an actor. That kind of stuck and then right after high school went to New York when I was still 17, just before I turned 18 and joined the Neighborhood Playhouse with Sandy Meisner, the great acting teacher, where he was still teaching. That’s how it all started. I started to do plays and movies and like that.

J. Steinberg: You’re known for your dramatic roles and also for your dry sense of humor. I was wondering why you chose to be on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Do you at least get to express some of your sense of humor while you’re doing the show?

J. Goldblum: Yes, such as it is. Maybe I’m funny sometimes, maybe not so funny other times, but yes. They actually write, Dick Wolf has been fantastic, kind, cordial and brilliant, I think. And they have a brilliant staff of writers and producers and they have intendingly built a part that is suited for some of the things that I like to do and can do. That’s what they’ve tried to do and after seeing the first episode that was aired I think there’s some humor in there. Along with the solving the crime and the very passionate part of this character and serious part of the character, I think there’s some humor in it; I’m enjoying some of the funny parts of it.

S. Wiebe: Hello, Jeff, I just want to say first I’ve been following your career since Tenspeed and Brown Shoe and enjoyed practically everything you’ve ever done. Detective Nichols seems to work from an observational point of view, where he’s working on motivations more than just the facts. So he’s kind of a bit intuitive. How would you describe your character if you were actually Nichols describing the character?

J. Goldblum: I’ll take a crack at it. Yes, I think you’re right. I am an intuitive fellow. Of course people know that both my parents were shrinks so I was sort of raised in an atmosphere where there was that interest in the human mechanism and the human psyche and what makes people tick. And yes, I think I’m particularly creative and adventurous and improvisational and spontaneous in my inner impulses and patterns and deeply curious and appetized in the unfathomably mysterious and delicious phenomena that is the human being and who we really are.

And why certainly people go off the rails and commit murder here in New York City, that interests me particularly, and oftentimes I find it’s a mistake of identity and having their ego built around mistakenly and their sense of identity built around some aspect of form, if you will, in their lives, either their careers or their reputations or their bank accounts. That mistake gets them into trouble and they wind up doing risky and awful things in order to pursue that mistaken notion and defend it and help that survive. It’s a bad, but not uncommon disease of the psyche that I find results in murder sometimes. I’m a humble student of that whole subject.



J. Kissane: You actually touched on this before, that you are a skilled piano player. Were you nervous when you were being filmed during a scene where you got to play the piano in an episode?

J. Goldblum: I don’t know how skilled I am, but I did take lessons. Our parents gave us music lessons early on in Pittsburgh and I took to it and loved it. I kind of guess it’s a hobby of mine. I’ve always played piano … I decided on being an actor, I played the ragged cocktail lounges here and there, a couple of jobs while I was still in high school in Pittsburgh and then have always had a piano where I am, where I live and now where I work, too. I just love to play all the time. For the last several years I’ve had a jazz band called the Mildred Spitzer Orchestra in Los Angeles and when I’m off work we book ourselves into places and play gigs around town.

Then, yes, they knew about it a little bit and worked it into the character so my character, Detective Nichols, is able to play a bit and in these couple episodes, one that you saw already, maybe that first episode, and there’s another one where I play. No, I’m not particularly nervous. I get excited and I got excited about it, but I always was sort of thrilled to play. Even when I play gigs these days I have no career aspirations or no fear of criticism. I really do it because I love to do it. Whenever I do it I love to do it, so it was particularly enjoyable for me having it be part of a scene or two.

C. Nyholm: Touching back on expansion of your first question I’m just wondering what you advise young actors today if they wanted to get into the field of acting. How would you start and where would you go?

J. Goldblum: Very good question, advice to, you know I teach, for the last, I’m a humble student of acting myself and part of that studentship is teaching, in fact, I feel like I learn a lot from it. I just love doing it; I could teach every day. I haven’t done it for a while because I’ve been working so often, but one of the things I feel like is relevant and practical to tell my students sometimes, and anybody interested in getting into it, is to, well I like what Stanislavsky said. He said, “Love the art in yourself; not yourself in art.”

So in fact you can begin to discover and investigate whether you are an actor or not, whether you’re in my view, qualified for a life in this profession or in this endeavor by checking yourself out and acting every day, getting plays and scripts and getting together with people and divvying up the parts and acting in one way or another, or writing things. But an actor wants to get up every day and they can’t think of anything particularly more fun to do than getting into a made-up situation and living it out as if it’s real. And having people watch it perhaps and thereby telling those people a story, by acting out these characters in a story. That’s what actors want to do; they don’t necessarily want to be famous or rich or anything else. It’s a very bad gamble if that’s what you’re after. But if your heart is wildly in it so that you can’t think of anything else that could possibly make you happy or happier than getting up every day and acting, playing this crazy game that you make something up and playing pretending as if that’s true; if that’s for you you should start to do it.

And it’s not rocket science. There are a lot of books about it. I had a great teacher, Sandy Meisner, and there’s a book that he wrote kind of chronicling a class that he, his two-year program takes you through. And you can learn many things, but it’s really doing it. If you have a feeling to do it that’s what you might do. And that’s what you start to do. If you make acting a part of your daily life, first of all, that’s a satisfying end in itself. But you might find that you start to get good at it and opportunities may come. If you’re of that sort of temperament you may investigate how to study formally and pursue the profession if that’s of your temperament and all of that.

But I’d say start to act; be a fan. See if you’re a person who loves, is a fan of and a lover of it, a devotee of literature, of material and you say, “I’ve got to do that.” Then start to do it anywhere you can that’s what I would say.

J. Fulghum: It’s an honor to speak with you today.

J. Goldblum: It’s a greater honor for me. That’s a line from a movie; do you know what movie that’s from?

J. Fulghum: Not right off hand.

J. Goldblum: A Woody Allen movie, Love and Death. “It’s a greater honor for me. No, it’s a greater honor for me. No, you must be Don Francisco’s sister.” Yes, that’s from Love and Death. But in fact it’s a greater honor for me.

J. Fulghum: Throughout your career you’ve starred in movies that feature incredible and even monstrous creatures like Jurassic Park and Incident at Loch Ness. Do you have any interest in cryptozoology, which is the study of hidden animals?

J. Goldblum: Not particularly. I don’t have much of an interest in Big Foot or the Loch Ness Monster or dinosaurs that actually might be running around, no. I’ve never heard anything credible that would make me think that any of that stuff actually exists. Even though I love playing in those stories including the dinosaurs, no, in real life I’m not particularly interested in Big Foot or the Loch Ness monster.



T. Rogers: How would the Jeff Goldblum of 20 years ago approach Zach Nichols?

J. Goldblum: Jeff Goldblum 20 years ago might have been, but I was playing that Tenspeed and Brownshoe so I would have been the actor involved perhaps, this is hopefully I wouldn’t have any business with doing anything wrong that would have gotten me involved in a guy who’s investigating murders. But I’ve always been involved with crime stories and if I had been, for instance 20 years ago not inconceivably involved in a part where I might have been playing a detective like this I would have been very interested to talk to Zach Nichols, who’s ostensibly a real and a uniquely brilliant detective, for research purposes.

Here on our set, Criminal Intent we’ve got a guy like that, so the current Jeff Goldblum can talk to this fellow Mike Struck who’s a brilliant real-life detective. I love hearing all his stories and he’s on the set when we do our stories here and he tells us what’s real and if he were playing the part and he were in the actual situation what he’d be thinking, what he’d be doing, how he’d be doing it, and that’s thrilling and fascinating to me. So that’s how I can imagine Jeff Goldblum of yore talking to Zach Nichols if he were real.

Z. Oat: I’m a big fan of Raines and I don’t know if this has been touched on already, but were you disappointed when the show got cancelled and did that influence you at all in considering this part on Law & Order?

J. Goldblum: Let’s see, I have a very, at this point maybe I have a philosophical approach that allows me here and there to be satisfied with whatever happens, believe it or not. Yes, I have my ups and downs and I can be disappointed in one thing or another, but generally speaking whatever happens I will mostly, and you can, it’s not strange to think to look at my life and go, “You’re a lucky guy,” and to mostly feel incredibly grateful. So even during a period when for instance Raines came and Raines went, I just felt incredibly grateful. If they had told me in fact that Raines would have been a six, seven-part miniseries I probably would have signed up and been very happy to do it like that too. I would have been very happy. But I’m always interested in the unexpected and know that things, especially in show business, but in life generally, are inevitably fleeting to one extent. It may be short, it may be long, but there’s no such thing as long. I think all of life is a fleeting proposition, so I’m sort of happy with whatever comes and goes in fact. And I think in loss and in the goings is sometimes the greatest opportunity for expansion.

Anyway, in another way it did give me, it whet my appetite for more cop parts, it’s true, and even before I did Raines I did this … show called The Pillow Man, where I played a detective, a homicide detective in fact. And I had a great time doing that. It was this Mike McDonough play and I was in it with Billy Crudup and Zeljko Ivanek and we had a great time for six months at the Booth Theater in New York. After that I was still very appetized when Raines came along, and after Raines, to do this, and there was sort of some kind of appetizing continuum for me in those things, that’s right.

J. Ruby: So out of all the roles you’ve played, because there’s been a lot, what’s been your favorite and why?

J. Goldblum: My favorite and why. Maybe it’s because I’m trying to get better and I feel like I am, but I currently am pretty in love with this part that I’m doing now. Then I’ve got a couple of, I like the parts at the stage when they’re at the stage of development, so I’m doing a couple more movies right after this, this summer, one called The Baster with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman, and I’m at the stage where I’m rehearsing it and trying to figure out who the character is and what the part is, and I kind of love that. And then I’m doing this movie with Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams called Morning Glory right after that, and I’m a bit in love with that. I think you have to be. That’s part of the criteria and qualification for taking a part. It has to be a passion and something you’re in love with.

But besides that, having said all that, I did love very much Adam Resurrected that I did this last year with Paul Schrader directing that Willem Dafoe was in and it was a wonderful movie and experience for me. I loved doing that movie, Pittsburgh that I think you can still get on NetFlix, a very handcrafted affair that I sort of cooked up over several years. Besides that, holy cats, many things that I could think of, but those are a few that come to mind.

Jeff Goldblum Spices Up The Headlines

Save It or Sink It: Jeff Goldblum on Law & Order: CI
Jeff Goldblum took the case on Law & Order: Criminal Intent last night, but did he fill Det. Mike Logan's (Chris Noth) big shoes? We think he did a damn good job, but we want to know what you think.
The veteran actor brings his witty banter and eccentric personality to Det. Zach Nichols, which is quite apropos, since witty banter and eccentric personalities are what make Criminal Intent tick (along with the great cases and strong storylines, of course).

^Funny, isn't the picture in this article one of the promo shots they did for RAINES? Ha ha...

Jeff Goldblum on 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent': The verdict?
Jeff Goldblum made his debut on Law & Order: Criminal Intent last night as Det. Zack Nichols, new partner of Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson). He rolled up to the crime scene in an eclectic Brooklyn neighborhood carrying goods from the three pit-stops he made on the one-block walk from his car: grits with ham from a soul food restaurant, a bagel from a kosher deli, and a tantric charm from a new age store. I guess when you've been on an unspecified leave for seven years, you're used to being on your own schedule.

EclipseMagazine: Law & Order: Criminal Intent - Jeff Goldblum Makes an Instant Impression!


When Teeter, a talented musician, is found murdered after a night out with his friends [to take in a spelling bee!] – in a neighborhood composed of several different ethnicities, Captain Danny Ross [Eric Bogosian] assigns Detective Megan Wheeler [Julianne Nichols] to the case, along with her new partner, Detective Zach Nichols [Jeff Goldblum]. As their investigation begins, Rafe, another musician who lived in the same warehouse sized loft as Teeter falls down the building’s elevator shaft. Rock Star, this week’s episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent [USA, 9/8C] introduces Goldblum’s Detective Nichols in a way that allows Goldblum to make an indelible first impression – on his new partner, and on the show’s audience.



Nichols arrives at his first crime scene [Teeter] marvelling about the variety of fine ethnic foods he was able to find on his way to work. Wheeler is not amused, but when she questions Ross about him, Ross informs her that, before he took a seven-year leave, he was, “…amazing. Brilliant cop. Very perceptive.” And notes that both Nichol’ parents were shrinks. Where did he go for those seven years? “He sent me a postcard from Cleveland, “says Ross.

Before long though, Nichols wins Wheeler over with his keen eye for detail and a knowledge of people that allows him to reassure a possible suspect that he’s not one by playing a cool jazz improvisation on the late Teeter’s keyboard. He also knows how to spin his questions when dealing with other suspects – like the musicians’ landlord, Philip, whose band played the third-longest set at Woodstock.

Rock Star showcases Goldblum’s character, but allows Nicholson and Bogosian plenty of room to perform as well – though it’s likely that Goldblum’s Nichols will assume the lead role on future investigations. The character may remind of Goldblum’s last series, the brilliant – of too hip for the room – Raines, though minus that character’s imagined conversations with the victims whose murders he was trying to solve. Nichols has that same intensity and ability to learn about people without actually appearing to be doing anything.

Where Vincent D’Onofrio’s Detective Goren is a riff on Sherlock Holmes, Goldblum’s Nichols might be analogous to Freud – Goren is a facts guy, while Nichols is all about motive. The one thing they have in common is that no detail escapes them. They differ in their method of using those details. I expect that Detective Wheeler’s primary concern, in future eps, will be grounding Nichols in much the same way that Detective Eames keeps Goren grounded – and like the Watson of Conan Doyle’s original stories, provide a certain toughness and resourcefulness that will keep Nichols on track.

If Rock star is any indication, Law & Order may be about to hit a creative peak. Not bad for a show in its eighth season!

The New York Times: Back on the Beat, With a High Q Rating


Mr. Goldblum (who will appear every other episode, alternating with Vincent D’Onofrio) plays Detective Zack Nichols, a former musician and son of Upper West Side psychologists, who left the New York Police Department for seven years after 9/11 to pursue that very un-cop-like ambition of finding himself. “Seven years? Where did he go?” his new partner, Megan Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson), asks their captain, Danny Ross (Eric Bogosian). “Sent me a postcard from Cleveland once,” Ross replies.

Nichols has returned to the force, ostensibly with Zen calm and more of the intuitive brilliance that we are meant to infer as his genetic inheritance. The character is better suited to Mr. Goldblum’s sensibility than the hallucinating detective he played on the short-lived series “Raines,” on which he was required to do too much feeling. Nichols is like Damian Lewis’s Charlie Crews on “Life” but funnier. We are introduced to him this Sunday at a crime scene in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn where he shows up with a bagel, a bowl of grits and a tantric charm, marveling at the neighborhood’s shopping opportunities and getting at its ethnic and racial divisions in a way that leave the preceding moments of plodding exposition completely superfluous.

Mr. Goldblum’s initial scene has the effect of a star’s first walk-on in a stage play: you feel moved to applause. It isn’t merely that Mr. Goldblum is now the marquee name, more famous than the actors around him. It’s also that you trust him to break through the show’s melodramatic solemnity; he signals a kind of first-aid relief. Wheeler, played by the expressionless, pancake-faced Ms. Nicholson, is destined to fade even further into the background than she did with her previous partner, Mike Logan (Chris Noth). And Mr. D’Onofrio’s Detective Robert Goren, with his lugubrious intellect and Rodin poses, is fated to seem even more annoying now that Mr. Goldblum is here, on alternate weeks, to deliver a far more appealing take on how to be a know-it-all.

Goldblum Plays Odd Tune on ‘L&O: CI’

New York Post: FIRST LOOK AT GOLDBLUM'S 'CI'

JURASSIC COP


IF first impressions are any indication, Jeff Goldblum will fit seamlessly into the "Law & Order" universe of quirky characters.

Chief among these is Vincent D'Onofrio's offbeat Det. Goren on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" -- and if Goldblum's April 26 debut on "Criminal Intent" is any indication, his style will bookend nicely with D'Onofrio's.

Known primarily for his big-screen roles (including the blockbuster "Jurassic Park"), Goldblum's stock-in-trade has been his loopy, off-kilter acting style shaded with a studied intensity that meshes with his gangly on-screen presence. Somehow, he pulls it all together into one tidy package.

NYTimes.com: The Case of the Quirky New Detective

AMONG the things you expect to see on the set of “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”: interrogation rooms, firearms, shifty-eyed suspects. Among the things you probably don’t expect to see: a baby grand piano. Among the things you definitely don’t expect to see: Jeff Goldblum improvising a jazz tune on that baby grand piano.

Yet there he was on a recent Friday afternoon at the Chelsea Piers studios, where “Criminal Intent” is produced, his sinewy, 6-foot-4 frame parked behind the keyboard of a Steinway as he tickled his way through a Gershwinesque composition. The scene that Mr. Goldblum was filming called for his character, an unconventional New York police detective recently returned to the force, to lull a witness into revealing details crucial to a murder investigation.

That his musical skills could actually have this effect on people, Mr. Goldblum later admitted, was “a little bit of poetic license, a leap and a conceit.” But, he added, “I’m supposed to be brilliant, so it’s O.K.”

EXTRAS WANTED FOR GOLDBLUM FILM!

Check out the New York craigslist ad here: http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/tfr/1076494800.html

"Anyone who thought that movie casting was a fine art should check out this entry on the New York version of classifieds site Craigslist. It's a request for extras to appear in The Baster, a Jennifer Aniston/Jason Bateman romcom about a woman who has a child with a sperm donor only to discover seven years later that the helpful chap was actually – gulp – her best friend. The film, due out next year, co-stars Jeff Goldblum (the quirky doc, perhaps?) and is based on a story by Jeffrey Eugenides, author of The Virgin Suicides and hermaphrodite novel Middlesex.

Anyway, Grant Wilfley Casting, the resourceful agency behind the post, aren't just looking for people to pad out a crowd scene. Don't go getting your hopes up; not just anyone can apply for these roles. What they're looking for are:

• A heavy-set woman who is able to ride a bike, comfortable in provocative wardrobe, and comfortable having profanities shouted at her.
• A woman with a round face, small eyes and upturned nose who is comfortable having profanities shouted out at her in a comedic scene.
• A rail-thin teen boy with bad skin, bad acne.

Specific, eh? Not just bad acne, but bad skin on top of it. And does the inclusion of the "comedic scene" clause in the second request suggest that the insults hurled at the first woman form part of a really heartbreaking bicycle moment?

Hopefuls are invited to send a recent photo and contact details to an email address. Are you tempted? Why not send in your snaps to us first at film.editor@guardianunlimited.co.uk – we can tell you if you fit the bill. And who does this tell you more about: the Grant Wilfley Casting agency, or the people who might be likely to browse the small ads on Craigslist?"

Soliciting Your Critique On SC

I am trying to really fix up SC and make it look as good as possible. I recently applied at StarsZZ.com for hosting (they give you a free domain name and I'm hoping to get "Goldblum.net" or something along those lines) but I was turned down because, "Your site design, although coming along well, is not of a high enough quality as of yet. You are more than welcome to re-apply at a later date once you have acquired more web/graphic design experience."

This was pretty disappointing at first, considering I actually work as a graphic designer and have been doing it since I was eleven, but it's true SC doesn't look as good as it should and I've decided to take it as a challenge.

I'm pretty attached the basic layout and don't want to change it too much, but let me know what your ideas are.

Are there any little (or big) things about the site that bug you?

Is the head banner too big?

Is the whole site too wide? (I originally made it wide thinking I would have a "banners" page for people to use on forums but I still haven't gotten around to it. Still, if it is too wide, I cold always put those in the gallery or just make them pop up in larger windows for the full size.

What about the navigation bar? Do you think the text there should be smaller?

What about the main page? Do you think that it looks to cluttered?

Lay it on me. :) While I like the site pretty well for the most part how it is (and really like seeing the big header banners of Jeff when I'm on it (Ha ha) I would be ready to do a completely new design if that's the best way to go.

I appreciate ALL your thoughts. :D

Jeff's Aura Photo


Though I added this to the Random Facts page, I thought it deserved its own blog post.

A few weeks ago I discovered an interesting photo of Jeff - an aura photo. It was taken by Stephany Hurkos, wife of the famous psychic, Peter Hurkos.

This is how she read his aura from the photo,
"He is content, honest and sincere, music is his life... a non conformist and strong willed... a bit of a manipulate - he is a good friend to people... a chameleon, very bright..."
