Jeff Goldblum is reuniting with NBC. The actor, who toplined the network's two-hour movie/backdoor pilot War Stories earlier this year, has inked a talent deal with NBC to star in a new series project targeted for fall 2004. "Whatever role Jeff Goldblum has inhabited -- a leading or supporting -- he always pops," NBC president of primetime development Kevin Reilly said. "He's got that unique quality of being offbeat and, at the same time, approachable and likable, which makes him perfect to build a show around." Goldblum, whose feature credits include the blockbusters Jurassic Park, Independence Day and The Fly, was recently seen in the offbeat comedy Igby Goes Down. He is currently filming Wes Anderson's feature The Life Aquatic and will next be seen in Showtime's Spinning Boris. Goldblum is repped by UTA and Industry Entertainment.
