Jeff Goldblum is sure loving fatherhood! The "Jurassic Park" star stopped by Conan on Monday, where he chatted with the host about his newborn son Charlie Ocean Goldblum. The 62-year-old welcomed his first child with wife Emilie Livingston, 32, on the 4th of July and explained to the host where the tiny tot got his unique name from. "Well, Charlie, that's, uh...and Ocean, that's a little out there," host Conan O'Brien admitted to the actor. "It is. But is it too out there?" Jeff responded. "I love the ocean." "Maybe you had a great uncle Ocean or something," Conan joked. "I don't know. We just thought it was possible." All kidding aside, the actor said that he and his former Olympic gymnast wife are "very good" with their new bundle of joy and that their baby is "so good and sweet." "I enjoy him. I love him to bits," he said. »

Jeff Goldblum loves every aspect of fatherhood. The Independence Day: Resurgence actor welcomed a son, Charlie Ocean Goldblum, on the 4th of July. When he appeared on TBS' Conan Monday, he heard an "audible gasp" after mentioning his son's name. "Well, Charlie, that's, uh...and Ocean, that's a little out there," host Conan O'Brien told his 62-year-old guest. "It is. But is it too out there?" Jeff asked. "I love the ocean." "Oh, so you did name him after the ocean?" Andy Richter asked. I thought it might have been a coincidence." Conan joked, "Maybe you had a great uncle Ocean or something. I don't know. We just thought it was »
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
"The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," "Late Night With Seth Meyers" and "The Late Late Show with James Corden" were all on repeats on Monday night. That left "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Conan" with new shows, and they were ready to steal your attention.
Jimmy Kimmel trolled Jimmy Fallon -- who always has elaborate games for his guests -- by setting up a game called "Heatherball," aka tetherball with Heather Graham's face on it (brilliant!), with guest Bob Odenkirk (mock) refusing to play. Bob said he wanted to just sit down and talk to Jimmy, and called his publicist on stage to complain that he was being forced to play a stupid game. »

With the monstrous box office success of Jurassic World, which has earned over $1.6 billion worldwide, the franchise is more popular than ever. It may surprise some fans to learn that, after the initial success of Jurassic Park, Universal Cartoon Studios was developing an animated TV series, but, surprisingly, it never got off the ground. Concept artist William Stout has posted a number of his own illustrations from the proposed series on his official website, with all of these pieces available for purchase. FromDirectorStevenSpielberg.tumblr.com also discovered a post from 2014, where the artist spoke about the trailer for the series, and why it never came to pass.
"Although I own a copy, I don't think this trailer is available anywhere. Upon the success of Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park movie, all kinds of ancillary projects abounded: toys, games, novelties, apparel, etc. Towards the end of all of this merchandising I »

The 1980’s were inarguably a “golden era” for the subgenre of monster horror flicks. This decade saw a variety of brave experiments on the silver screen involving ghoulies and ghosts, as well as some amazing plotlines. Here are five films from the era that succeeded at turning the truly bizarre into some bloody good entertainment.
5. Deadly Spawn
Deadly Spawn is a 1983 space-monster film shot on a budget of merely $25,000. In light of that low low number, the distinguishing horror fan is willing to look past instances in which a fishing line for controlling the monsters is visible. The premise is simple: a meteor carrying a space-slug crashes to Earth. The slug immediately eats two humans before finding a dark basement where it can multiply. The movie takes off when a trio of geeky horror fans discover the slug living in their basement, and come up with a plan to stop »

Inhumans #1-12 (1998-99)
Written by Paul Jenkins
Penciled by Jae Lee
Inked by Jae Lee
Published by Marvel Comics
“While we appreciate the support…it is nonetheless conditional. As seems to be the case with every human good deed.”
-Mendicus (Inhumans Vol. 2, Issue 5)
“From diversity comes equality”. A simple concept that stands in direct contrast to the term “Separate but equal”, and a concept that governs every facet of life according to the Inhumans. From the very beginning of Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee’s Inhumans, readers are immediately thrust into a genocracy governed by genealogy and phenotypical expression. The home of these strange beings with irresistible power is known as Attilan, an island nation ruled by the ever-silent Black Bolt and his inner cabinet, composed of his family. Together, they preside over their race of Inhumans, an offshoot of Homo sapiens, »

Ultimate Marvel Team-Up #1 (2001)
Written by Brian Michael Bendis
Art by Matt Wagner
Colors by Jc
Published by Marvel Comics
Back in 1972, Marvel’s most iconic character got a second solo title. With a twist. It was called Marvel Team-Up and featured Spider-Man (and sometimes Human Torch) meeting and fighting crime with a variety of guest stars, both famous (X-Men) and obscure (Werewolf by Night). This stories acted as fun standalone superhero adventures while also introducing readers to the wider Marvel Universe in a pre-Wiki era.
Ultimate Marvel Team-Up was launched by Ultimate Spider-Man writer Brian Michael Bendis and his editor Ralph Macchio (He didn’t act in Karate Kid.) to introduce important Marvel characters to the Ultimate Universe without taking time away from Spider-Man’s personal stories in Ultimate Spider-Man. The book also was a showcase for a smorgasbord of comics talent, who normally wouldn’t draw Spidey, the month’s guest star, »

Arrow Video know their cult movies, you just have to look at the ones they’ve released to see that. If you were to ask the question, how crazy can a cult movie be? I think you just have to look at their latest release for that. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension is probably one of the strangest (yet still good) Eighties movies you’ll ever see.
When Buckaroo Banzai (Peter Weller), the brilliant physicist-neurosurgeon-martial arts master-secret-rock star manages to use the Oscillation Overthruster to travel to the 8th dimension he draws the attention of the Red Lectroids (an alien race obviously.) Working with Banzai’s »

Some actors are chameleons. With each performance, they transform themselves almost unrecognisably, whether it's Christian Bale's haunted, emaciated factory worker in The Machinist, Charlize Theron's haggard serial killer in Monster or Jake Gyllenhaal's sinewy boxer in the forthcoming Southpaw.
Then there's Jeff Goldblum, whose approach to acting is very different - but no less valid - than those chameleons. In each of his roles, he brings charisma, intrigue and restless energy. He's a fascinating actor to watch because, whether he's playing the lead or a supporting role, he somehow manages to project so many opposing forces in one performance: he's at once an extrovert and an outsider. Geeky and awkward yet also flirtatious and comfortable in his own skin. Intellectual yet sometimes naive. Gentle but also commanding and sometimes even scary. »
Directed by W.D. Richter.
Adventurer/surgeon/rock musician Buckaroo Banzai and his band of men, the Hong Kong Cavaliers, take on evil alien invaders from the 8th dimension.
The 80’s film Buckaroo Banzai (I’ll dispense with the full unwieldy title for convenience’s sake) has got a pretty strong case for being one of the last truly ‘cult’ movies. The film, conceived by old college roommates W.D. Richter and Earl Mac Rauch, was dreamed up with ideas of being a full on box office smash. Back in 1984, this never happened, with mainstream audiences not really ‘getting’ the non-conformist storyline and often downright weird segments of anarchic action comedy.
Pre-internet word of mouth about the film mostly centred on midnight screenings, »

The after looks like the before. As in the before-pregnancy before. Jeff Goldblum and wife Emilie Livingston welcomed their first child together on July 4—and eight days later, Mom had already snapped back into shape! The French-Canadian gymnast shared a couple of bare-tummy pics today on Instagram today, one taken the day before she gave birth to son Charlie Ocean Goldblum in which her baby bump is taking over her small frame, and the other taken on July 12 in which she's already got her abs back. "#fbf to my day before giving birth to Charlie picture!" Emilie captioned her little collage, which also included a pic of Goldblum and her with their newborn son right after he was born. "I »
What baby? Jeff Goldblum’s wife, Emilie Livingston, took to Instagram on Friday, July 16, to show off her insanely flat stomach just days after welcoming her first child. “#fbf to my day before giving birth to Charlie picture!

The Comedy Central show “Inside Amy Schumer” has been on the air for three seasons, but it was this past year that the star, Amy Schumer, finally broke through to the world. Everyone knows who she is.Amy’s thoughtful comedic vignettes on her series have included A-listers like Paul Giamatti, Tina Fey, Patricia Arquette and Jeff Goldblum.

As Only Connect and University Challenge return to the BBC for new series, we salute the geek comforts of UK TV quiz shows…
Never mind A.E. Housman’s maxim that “all human knowledge is precious whether or not it serves the slightest human use”, no knowledge is really precious until it serves the slightest use watching a TV quiz. If you’ve ever moaned about not needing your schoolboy geometry in the real world, you’ve clearly never experienced the joy of shouting “Cartesian Plane” at BBC Two on a Monday night.
Quiz shows are a TV comfort blanket for trivia nerds. That instant sliding-into-a-warm-bath relaxation other people experience when they hear the first bars of a beloved soap theme is what the opening ‘dum’ of the University Challenge music does to us. You’re home now, says that music. Wherever you are, whatever’s going on in your life, »
Heather Graham still knows how to work a camera! The "Hangover" star hit the red carpet for the Fandango Movieclips party during Comic-Con in San Diego, California on Thursday.

The "Boogie Nights" star also flaunted her famous curves while posing from the side and showed off a little booty in the netted sheer number. In another shot, Heather's black bra peeked through the front of her dress. Whether this was intentional or not, the actress definitely has the bod to rock it! The blonde beauty also spoke at the event as part of the panel for the new "Call Of Duty" game, "Black Ops III: Zombie Mode," to which she lends her voice.
