Jeffrey Lynn Goldblum has received nominations for an Oscar, an Emmy, a Genie and a Drama Desk Award throughout his career. He is known for starring in the highest-grossing films of his era, Jurassic Park (1993) and Independence Day (1996), as well as their respective sequels. Goldblum moved to New York City at 17 to become an actor. He worked on the stage and studied acting at the renowned Neighborhood Playhouse under the guidance of acting coach Sanford Meisner. He made his Broadway debut in the Tony Award-winning musical Two Gentlemen of Verona. He is also an accomplished jazz pianist and declared that if he did not act, he would have become a professional musician.
His talent and abilities to bring his own style to a wide variety of roles have made him one of the quality actors in entertainment. The 65-year-old actor is a great fit for the character Grandmaster in Thor: Ragnarok which has a plethora of outstanding actors in the cast including Cate Blanchett as Hela, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Karl Urban as Skurge, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and all the regulars in the Thor cinematic presentations of Marvel Entertainment. The reviews are in and he is a stand out as an Elder of the Universe and ruler of the planet Sakaar.
He helps to make that act of the movie when Thor and Hulk are on Sakaar one of the best parts of the movie. Below is an interview with Goldblum about his role and how he approached the role as Grandmaster. Thor Ragnarok will be in theaters November 3rd and we will see in person.
