Jeff Goldblum Joins ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’

Jeff Goldblum Joins Grand Budapest Hotel
Buna Vista

Outside of the occasional television commercial, Jeff Goldblum sightings are rare these days. It’s a shame, really — the world would be a significantly improved place if there was more Goldblum, all the time. However, there’s some good news brewing on the Goldblum Front today: it looks like he’s officially joined the already bursting-at-the-seams cast of ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel.’

‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ is, of course, the next film from the increasingly productive and increasingly wonderful Wes Anderson, whose ‘Moonrise Kingdom‘ was a surprise hit earlier this year. A few days ago, we reported that Saoirse Ronan had joined the ensemble, but that news has been immediately overshadowed by the arrival of Goldblum, GOLDBLUM, GOLDBLUM! Can you tell that we’re excited to see Mr. Goldblum in a movie again?

Of course, most will remember him as the star of David Cronenberg’s ‘The Fly’ (which is probably still his best performance) or as Ian Malcolm in the ‘Jurassic Park’ films, but Goldblum’s eccentric presence and unique (and easy to imitate) style of speaking make him a highlight of every movie he’s been in. He previous worked with Anderson on the underrated ‘The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou,’ where he played the memorably scummy rival to Bill Murray’s titular explorer.

Now, the official line-up for the film includes Saoirse Ronan, Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Jude Law, Jason Schwartzmann and Jeff freakin’ Goldblum. We haven’t seen a cast that good since, uh, ‘Moonrise Kingdom.’ There’s a pattern here.
