BIOGRAPHY OF JEFF GOLDBLUM
Jeffrey Lynn Goldblum, known only as Jeff Goldblum, is born the October 22, 1952 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, from a Jewish family who emigrated from Russia and Austria to the USA. Since adolescence he has shown a strong passion for the performing arts, in fact he is an excellent jazz pianist, a path he would have taken, had he not given himself up to an acting career. Upon graduation, Goldblum moved to New York to become an actor and studied acting with Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse. His first uses are in some Broadway theatrical productions and at the age of eighteen he is in the Shakespearean comedy “I due gentiluomini di Verona”. In 1974 he also made his film debut with The executioner of the night of Michael Winner in the role of one of the young attackers of the protagonist’s family, played by Charles Bronson. In the same year he is in the cast of California Poker (1974) by Robert Altman, a director who also wants him in his next work, the Oscar nominee Nashville (1975). In the meantime he also launches into the small screen, where he is the guest of some episodes of various TV series, from Colombo (1975) a Starsky & Hutch (1977).
The fame for Goldblum is still far and the ranks even longer, the seventies pass with small parts, but the films in which he participates are directed by names of a certain level. He is in the cast of Stop in Greenwich Village (1976) by Paul Mazursky, in Candidate in the morgue (1975) by J. Lee Thompson and in Me and Annie (1977) by Woody Allen. Back to being directed by Winner in horror Sentinel (1977), but the British director is not the only one to choose him more than once, in fact also Philip Kaufam will direct it in a short time Terror from deep space (1978) and Real men (1983), as well as Lawrence Kasdan in comedy The big cold (1983) and in the western Silverado (1985). The extras and supporting roles finally manage to put him in the dazzling spotlight and in 1985 John Landis he wants him as the male lead of All in one night, mix of comedy and thrilling with Michelle Pfeiffer. Given his previous experience with horror, one of the masters of the genre, like David Cronenberg, decides to entrust him with the main part of The fly (1986), an internationally successful film that earned Goldblum a Saturn Award and world fame. Soon Altman recontacted him, this time for a more relevant role in Group therapy (1987) and later, when the actor is now a well-known face of cinema, for a cameo The protagonists (1992).
The eighties follow with some minor films of which the actor is always the protagonist – including The secret of the golden pyramid (1988) and Earth girls are easy (1989) – but which are not as successful as Cronenberg’s work. On TV he stars with Ben Vereen of the series Award winning Whitney agency (1980), but otherwise his are sporadic guest-star appearances in a few episodes. In 1992 he is a drug dealer and antagonist, not so opposed, of Lawrence Fishburne in Maximum coverage, but it is the following year that he once again rides the wave of success with Jurassic Park (1993) by Steven Spielberg as the eccentric mathematician Ian Malcom; a role he will also play in the sequel The Lost World – Jurassic Park (1997). In 1995 he joined Julienne Moore is Hugh Grant in Nine Months – Unexpected love as the chronic single Sean and returns as a scientist in Powder – An extraordinary encounter with another being (1995) of Victor Saves. The first part of the nineties sees him again engaged in a blockbuster, Independence Day (1996) of Roland Emmerich, commercial success of which he is the protagonist together with Will Smith.
In the 2000s the main parts decrease, he is one of the human characters of Like cats and dogs (2001) and supports an exceptional cast, led by Bill Murray, in The aquatic adventures of Steve Zissou (2004) of Wes Anderson. The most important work of the first decade of the third millennium is Adam Resurrected (2008), a dramatic film that through the character of Goldblum traces the horrors of the Second World War. In 2009 he is in the eighth season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, where he will play until 2010, the year in which he takes part in two comedies: Two hearts and a test tube (2010) with Jennifer Aniston is Jason Bateman is Good morning in the morning (2010) with Rachel McAdams is Harrison Ford. In 2013 he starred with Jim Broadbent is Linsday Duncan of the Franco-English Weekends of Roger Mitchell, followed by the hit film Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) by Anderson. The second decade of the 2000s sees him grappling with the sequels to his previous successes, he returns to play the role of David Levinson in Independence Day – Regeneration (2016) and those of Ian Malcom in Jurassic World – The destroyed kingdom (2018). They are also the years in which he experiences something new in his career: cinecomics, appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) as the bizarre and colorful Grand Master, a character who plays a much more relevant role in Thor: Ragnarok (2017); animation with Isle of Dogs (2018) by Anderson, in which he plays the Duke husky.
