Velociraptor (Film Universe)
There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Ian Malcolm will be a ‘saucy, sassy man’ in Jurassic World Sequel

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, actor Jeff Goldblum, who will be reprising his role of Dr. Ian Malcolm in the upcoming Jurassic World sequel, talked a little bit about what we should expect when his character returns.

You’ve also got an upcoming role in Jurassic World 2. What are you looking forward to about your return to that franchise?

Off I go in a few weeks to London, where they’ve been hard at work, and I’ll try to contribute something to the plate of dino-entertainment. I like my character. I think my character is a saucy, sassy man of some integrity and deep thinking. And of course, that whole world continues to be popular, slam-bang, top entertainment. I talked to the director, J.A. Bayona, over the phone. I enjoyed his movie The Impossible with Naomi Watts, and he’s something else. I didn’t realize he was a good friend of a friend of mine, a director I worked with a while ago in Spain named Fernando Trueba, who’s just fantastic. Knowing that the two of them are brethren and brotherly in their friendship makes me feel very good, too. Even though some might say it’s popcorn-y entertainment (top-notch, of course), in our conversation he was very focused on the serious issues of greed as it oftentimes comes up in those movies, and the marvels of science and reason and the very fascinating point at which our species finds itself both in real life and in this imaginary world too. I’m very interested in that myself, so I’m looking forward to this. I’ve got a few things to do. I’m nothing if not conscientious, so I’m enjoying working on it every day.

So what do you think about Goldblum’s comments about Ian Malcolm and working with director J.A. Bayona? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.

  1. Not only does Goldblum somewhat confirms the Ian Malcolm in the books, but Bayona as well. Ian is a sassy man indeed and yes he is a deep thinker. But he can also clearly see the bigger picture when some man cannot, and that’s were I’m thrilled to know that Bayona understands that too. This news only gets me more hopefull of a less popcorny Jurassic World and a more dark and (dead)serious Jurassic Park. If that’s the case, it totally makes sence that Ian is in this movie!

  2. I imagine his role being small; like Hammond in The Lost World, or Sattler in Jurassic Park ///. A few minutes of screen time, a speech perhaps, a quick consult. Nothing like his role in the first or second film. We’ll see.

  3. I, too, believe his part is going to be small. Not exactly a quick cameo, but not much screening time either.
