Jurassic Park: initially, Ian Malcolm was not expected to be in the movie!
Jurassic Park would not be the same without the eccentric mathematical expert in chaos theory, and a lover of leather jackets, Ian Malcolm, played by Jeff Goldblum.
And yet, in a first script of the film directed by Steven Spielberg, Ian Malcolm would have to leave his place to Alan Grant (played by Sam Neill).
To tell it was the same Goldblum in an interview with Vanity Fair, issued in occasion of the release of Isle of Dogs:
I read the book of Micheal Crichton – Ian Malcolm, wow! Smart, funny, an interesting character. Spielberg has been so nice... But I said, “you Know, there are ongoing negotiations... to remove this part from the script. Therefore, from the time that we had this meeting, there is this small wrinkle that could... discuss.” And I said, “Heck!” I felt compelled to fight to be included!
Fortunately, thanks to the character of the charismatic and persuasive Goldblum, the team behind Jurassic Park has worked to be able to get a space for both the actors.
Below is the video of the interview released by the american actor.
Remember that Jeff Golblum will assume the role of Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World – The Kingdom Destroyed, out next June 7.
