Jeff Goldblum movies: 15 greatest films ranked from worst to best
Jeff Goldblum has returned to one of his most successful roles with Dr. Ian Malcolm in the film “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” Goldblum first played the character in the blockbuster film “Jurassic Park” back in 1993. The actor has had a highly successful career in film, television and theater for over 40 years.

Goldblum’s film career started in a particularly auspicious manner since his first four films were all highly regarded works of the early 1970s: “Death Wish”, “California Split”, “Nashville” and “Next Stop, Greenwich Village.” He continued to work in film and television for the next four decades and even returned to Broadway a few times, most notably in the highly regarded Martin McDonough play “The Pillowman.”

Along the way Goldblum has picked up a number of award nominations including an Oscar nomination for Best Live Action Short Film for “Little Surprises.” He received an Emmy nomination for a guest

Walk of Fame Honoree Jeff Goldblum on ‘Jurassic World’ Return, Favorite Memes

Walk of Fame Honoree Jeff Goldblum on ‘Jurassic World’ Return, Favorite Memes
Though he’s been working in films since 1974 — when he played Freak #1 in “Death Wish” — and starred in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time, it seems like only recently that the whole world fell for the charms of Jeff Goldblum.

Or the sense of humor he has about his own image, such as gamely reading “thirst tweets” about himself for Buzzfeed.

This golden age has not gone unnoticed by the star himself. “Things seem to be flourishing right now,” he says. “For whatever reason, I seem to be in a growth spurt.

50 Photos That Will Validate Your Decades-Long Crush on Jeff Goldblum
Jeff Goldblum is just one of those celebrities who gets better with age.

Trailer Watch: Glenn Close Is Fed Up with Being Defined as “The Wife”

The Wife

“Don’t paint me as the victim. I’m much more interesting than that,” says Glenn Close in a new trailer for “The Wife.” An adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s 2003 novel of the same name, the drama sees the six-time Oscar nominee playing Joan Castleman, a woman best known as the wife of an incredibly successful writer. Joan has dedicated decades of her life to nurturing her husband’s (Jonathan Pryce, “Game of Thrones”) career, but on the eve of his receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature, she decides that she’s had enough of his egotism and infidelities.

Joan’s “coup de grace is to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and secret of his career,” the film’s official synopsis hints.

The trailer shows glimpses into Joan and her husband’s complicated history. Joan herself was a talented writer in her college days — and her future husband was her professor.
