Jeff Goldblum Returns to His Shirtless Scene in ‘Jurassic Park’
Almost 30 years after the original jurassic parknext to come Jurassic World: Dominion will mark the return of three main characters: Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) and Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum). In a recent video for vanity lounge, all three actors share the “oral history” of the classic film, including stories behind some of the film’s most memorable moments.
For Dern, this means remembering the preparation for his intense velociraptor hunting scene. But Goldblum’s role in the film evokes a single shot that has since been immortalized in meme form: the image of his character Ian Malcolm lying with his shirt wide open, after being injured by a T-Rex. Just in case you need to refresh your memory: Malcolm’s leg is broken. There’s no reason in the script for this image, and yet it remains one of many fans’ most enduring. memories.
And it turns out that almost did not happen.
“It wasn’t in the script,” Goldblum admits in the video. “It had nothing to do with my character, it had nothing to do with the movie! I don’t know, it happened somehow.”
Goldblum went on to say that Ian Malcolm’s character was almost entirely cut from the script, which makes some sense considering his counterpart in Michael Crichton’s source novel eventually dies.
“I hadn’t read the script, you know, they said ‘you have a meeting, they’re thinking of you for this part,'” Goldblum says. “I had read the book, I came to the meeting, then [Spielberg] said ‘hey you know your part is going to go away I think that’s what’s going to happen to this, sorry about that. And I think I said, ‘oh, oh, wait, okay, but think about this, don’t do this without…’ I don’t know, I think I said something, not having no impact on the final decision, but fortunately it somehow coincided with the party that entered it.”
