EXCLUSIVE: Jeff Goldblum has a secret Irish weapon for his upcoming debut album
He also gives some fantastic romance advice for people afraid to make the first move...
A few months back, JOE was lucky enough to chat to Jeff Goldblum in the lead-up to Thor: Ragnarok, and it truly was a conversation for the ages. If you haven't watched that interview yet, we recommend you do (right here), and realise that the bar for our second chat with the living legend was set pretty damned high.
This time, we had the opportunity to talk about his return to the role of Doctor Ian Malcolm for the upcoming blockbuster sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, but before we could get into any movie chat, first we had to talk music.
Specifically, Goldblum told us that he was working on his first ever album, and that he had none other than Imelda May over to provide vocals for his debut jazz LP.
He tells us that she sang some cover versions of Rosemary Clooney's sensually charged 'Come On-A My House', as well a version of Dinah Washington's 'This Bitter Earth', which Goldblum says May sang so well, that he was completely moved to tears during her performance.
We need to hear this album, ASAP.
Elsewhere in our latest chat, we discuss which cinematic couple go down as Jeff's favourite duo, plus he gives some fantastic life advice for anyone out there who might be wanting to make the first move with a potential partner, but are maybe too afraid or shy to make the jump.
Check out the full interview right here:
Meanwhile, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is due to arrive in Irish cinemas on Wednesday 6 June, and we were also lucky enough to catch up with Goldblum's co-stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, as well as the movie's director J.A. Bayona, and the movie's writer (who also happened to direct the first Jurassic World) Colin Trevorrow.
Keep an eye on JOE for all of those, and in the meanwhile, check out the trailer for the movie right here:
