Bio

Jeff Goldblum is an American actor best known for his roles in the feature films The Big Chill (1983), The Fly (1986), Jurassic Park (1993) and its sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), as well as the alien invasion film Independence Day (1996).

Born Jeffrey Lynn Goldblum on October 22, 1952 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Jeff Goldblum began his career on the New York stage after moving to the city at the age of seventeen.

Possessing his own unique style of delivery, Goldblum made an impression on moviegoers with little more than a single line in Woody Allen's Annie Hall (1977), when he fretted about having forgotten his mantra.

Goldblum went on to appear in the remake Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) before a high-profile turn in the classic ensemble film The Big Chill (1983).

The quirky actor turned up in the suitably quirky film The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984), which became a 1980s cult classic, then went on to a breakthrough role in the David Cronenberg remake The Fly (1986), which also featured actress Geena Davis, Goldblum's wife from 1987-1990 and co-star in two additional films: Transylvania 6-5000 (1985) and Julien Temple's Earth Girls Are Easy (1988).

Goldblum was the rather unlikely star of some of the biggest blockbusters of the 1990s: Steven Spielberg's dinosaur adventure Jurassic Park (1993) and its sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), as well as the alien invasion flick Independence Day (1996).

These films saw Goldblum playing the type of intellectual characters he's become associated with.

Recent roles have included critically acclaimed turns in Igby Goes Down (2002), Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), Man of the Year (2006) and Adam Resurrected (2008).
