Jeff Goldblum talks about his time working on Thor: Ragnarok


Jeff Goldblum seems to have enjoyed his time working on Thor: Ragnarok!

Marvel Studios has never had trouble attracting talent, and Thor: Ragnarok is no different. The cast includes actors like Cate Blanchett and Karl Urban, but one of the biggest surprises was Jeff Goldblum, who will be playing the Grandmaster. The prospect of having him in a Marvel film is an exciting one for fans, and it appears that the actor had a fun time working on the movie.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Goldblum revealed that he enjoyed his time on the film and although he did not have any scenes with Cate Blanchett, he really enjoyed working with Chris Hemsworth:

More from Movies

"“I enjoyed it. I didn’t have scenes with Cate Blanchett, but she was in The Life Aquatic, of course, so we’d been in touch, and I’ve seen her since. I just adore her, so it was great to be in another movie with her, even just by association. The other Hemsworth brother, that now makes two for me, and he couldn’t have been sweeter or more down-to-earth, like the whole family.“"

He also expressed his delight in working with director Taika Waititi, who he was already a fan of before being cast in the film:

"“What I particularly loved is the director, Taika Waititi. He really got me involved in this because I’m a fan of his, from Flight of the Conchords and all his movies, not only Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Boy but especially What We Do In the Shadows. When we first talked, he said, “I want you to do your particular version of this character without being comic-y or grandiloquent. I think you should do something that’s in your creative family tree. And also improvise.” He was very interested in improvisation. We came to all those scenes and riffed enjoyably for the time we had. I don’t know what’s gonna come out in the mix because we gave him a whole bunch of different choices, I’ll tell you that. He’s great. Taika Waititi gets 10 Goldblums out of a possible 10 Goldblums.”"

Next: Thor: Ragnarok will be different than Guardians of the Galaxy

Of the three Marvel films being released this year, Thor: Ragnarok is definitely the wild card. With hints of the MCU’s cosmic side and Taika Waititi’s unique brand of humor, it’s hard to say what exactly is in store for us, but it definitely looks fun. We still have a while before it hits theaters, and fans will no doubt be waiting with anticipation to see the film and Goldblum’s Grandmaster.

Thor: Ragnarok soars into theaters on November 3, 2017.
