After more than 100 roles on the silver screen, gigs as a jazz pianist and a self-confessed enduring habit of telling almost everyone he meets who they remind him of, Jeff Goldblum, as Lauren Bans of GQ observed, simply is Jeff Goldblum. Whether his is playing an alien, a fly or a scientist, Jeff Goldblum always brings his distinctive personality to roles, even when he is portraying someone else.
The son of a doctor in Pittsburgh, Goldblum was always determined to be an actor, and takes his work very seriously. Preparing for his role in the Fly, he studied the insects for days and usually makes in-depth preparations for all of his roles. Nevertheless, he tends radiate an ease, an attractive casualness that is his trademark.
Apparently, he annoyed Steven Spielberg by improvising the same like “Must go faster!” in both Jurassic Park in 1993 and Independence Day in 1996. Perhaps few actors can play so many roles and still be themselves.
