Jeff Goldblum does not expect to be seen on screen much as Dr. Ian Malcolm in the upcoming “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”. However, Goldblum who can currently be seen in “Thor: Ragnarok” says that the Jurrasic World role will hopefully laid with some impact for fans of the franchise.
Malcolm was a key supporting character in the first film and the main lead in the second, but sat out the next two movies. Speaking on the Empire podcast this week, the beloved actor suggests his scenes are so short that they could easily cut him out of the film if the need arises:

Here are some reactions to Goldblum appearing in Jurrasic World.
