Jeff Goldblum Shows He Hasn’t Changed A Bit In Graham Norton Interview

Jeff Goldblum Shows He Hasn’t Changed A Bit In Graham Norton Interview

There are a few actors that are eccentric in real life as the characters they play on screen. Some of the names that spring to mind might be Bill Murray, Christopher Walken or Nicholas Cage.

But Jeff Goldblum sticks out for many as one of the most interesting actors in the industry. He's played a scientist who turns himself into an insect in The Fly, an expert who discovers an alien attack in Independence Day and most recently as the Grandmaster, one of the Elders of the Universe in Thor: Ragnarok.

He always manages to insert a bit of Goldblum into his characters, or maybe a tiny bit of each one rubs off to form the man he is today. While he's received a lot of praise over the years for his talents, he's now appeared on The Graham Norton Show and been the most Jeff Goldblum ever.

Not only did he rock the shit out of a sparkly turtle neck, but he was cool as a cucumber throughout the entire show. The 64-year-old was magnetic on the programme, first discussing his new role on Thor, but then delved into his grooming techniques and how to 'weed' out his nose and ear hair.

He asked Gerard Butler how he gets his nostril hairs out, saying: "What's yours, may I ask? It's a trivial and mundane and non-interesting thing, but may I ask you because I'm interested in it."

Of course, he's interested in that sort of thing.

But then he took it to another level when he revealed that his wife is a contortionist, a former magician's assistant and former Olympic rhythmic gymnast for Canada. Before he leapt into the story of how they met, he adorably offered the guests and Graham Norton a throat lozenge, just in case their throats were getting a bit dry or sore.

Not only did Mr Goldblum's wife compete at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, but she also was Emma Stone's dance double in La La Land. He adds: "We met at the gymnasium and I started a conversation, I saw her doing wonderful things and I invited her to this gig, where I play jazz piano."

On their first date, he played a song with her name in it; but as he's jamming out on the ivory keys, he asks whether she wanted to do some contortionist work on top of the piano and she performs an incredible routine.

Shortly after that story, Jeff jumps on a piano in the studio and plays Mona Lisa with two-time Grammy award winning artist Gregory Porter.

One person on Twitter aptly wrote: "After watching Graham Norton tonight, I think it's pretty obvious that the US made a huge mistake. Jeff Goldblum should be President."

It's a tough call considering Graham Norton had Hillary Clinton on the red sofa before Jeff, Gerard Butler and Jack Whitehall sat down, but I think many people would love him leading the US with all his quirkiness.
