Jeff Goldblum To Reprise Role In 'Jurassic World' Sequel

He's back!

Life finds a way for actor Jeff Goldblum.

The “Jurassic Park” star is returning to the dino world after signing on to the “Jurassic World” sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Goldblum will reprise his role as the witty mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm, whose character managed to survive Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster films “Jurassic Park” in 1993 and “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” in 1997.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are both slated to join him in the upcoming film, which is to be released on June 22, 2018.

The Oscar-nominated actor had previously said that he hadn’t been offered a role in the last “Jurassic World” film, which came out in 2015.

Despite that snub, he has said that he is “entirely satisfied” with his roles in the first two films.

“If I never did any more, I’d be entirely nourished and happy and fulfilled from having done these,” he said during a screening last year. “They’re doing spectacularly well without me.”

Goldblum, who welcomed a second child with wife Emilie Livingston this month, has stayed busy with other acting roles, including “Independence Day: Resurgence,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”

Needless to say, news of his return to the dino franchise has been well received on social media.
