Be honest, when you think of video games, who do you think of first? It’s not Mario or Master Chief, of course — it’s Jeffrey Lynn Goldblum, the stylish, eccentric actor who is perhaps best known for his roles in Jurassic Park and Thor: Ragnarok. And we’re not alone: Geoff Keighley, master of ceremonies for almost every gaming event ever, has apparently pulled enough strings to get Mister Goldblum on the stage for his Summer Game Fest. Two Jeff/Geoffs in one room?! Truly, this is the best E3 ever.
Jeff Goldblum has been in multiple games, most often as the voice of Dr Ian Malcolm, his Jurassic Park character, but also as Nero Blackstone in Call of Duty: Black Ops III, a very evil man with an almost laughably evil name.
In fact, when you search “Jeff Goldblum video games”, the first link (at least for us) is JG talking about video games, with quotes like “I know nothing about gaming” and “I’ve never played a video game in my life”. Then again, that was in 2019. Maybe he’s played one since.
The second link is Jeff doing video game impressions, if you’ve ever wanted to watch one of Hollywood’s greatest actors say “EA Sports: it’s in the game” and then lick his lips threateningly.
So, will Goldblum be better or worse than Keanu Reeves and whoever they manage to get for the next Big Sports game? Let us know in the comments.
