Jeff Goldblum Says He Was Almost The Voice Of Apple
Huffington Post - 9 months
Jeff Goldblum was almost Siri and we are shook about it. The “Jurassic Park” actor recently said in an interview with Australia’s “Today” show that Apple’s late CEO Steve Jobs attempted to convince him to become the “voice of Apple,” according to CNET. Really. “Steve Jobs called me up a few decades ago to be the voice of Apple,” Goldblum told interviewer Richard Wilkins. “That was early on, and I did not know it was Steve Jobs.” Siri can be really irritating when she goes off in your pocket accidentally, but if it was Jeff Goldblum talking to us, we probably wouldn’t hate it as much. If you’re thinking “Why Jeff Goldblum?” then you probably forgot he was actually an Apple ad man for a little while. Here’s a classically ‘90s Apple promo with Goldblum talking about pizza and computers ― what a combo! Maybe the next iPhone will feature some Goldblum ...

Wes Anderson Officially Announces New Movie 'Isle Of Dogs' With Edward Norton
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Wes Anderson officially announced the title for his upcoming stop-motion animation film: “Isle of Dogs.”  On Tuesday, the director released a video announcement about the film on Vimeo, which features a special appearance by one of its stars, Edward Norton. Mumblings about the project began popping up last year, when Jeff Goldblum let slip that he’d be lending his voice to the film. Along with Norton and Goldblum, the movie boasts a massive cast including Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray, Bryan Cranston, Frances McDormand, Greta Gerwig, Akira Ito, Akira Takayama and even Yoko Ono, among others. Filming for the project is currently underway in England, but to satisfy our curiosities, Anderson also released a tiny glimpse at Norton’s canine character, Rex.  The best part, though, is that you have a chance to be in the film. Sure, it’s probably not a huge chance, but it’s technically possible.  As part of his announcement, Anderson teamed up with Crowdwi...

The Best Celebrity Haircuts Of 2016 (So Far)
Huffington Post - over 1 year
By Liza Corsillo for GQ. Getting the approval of style-minded guys these days (and, well, us) takes more than great personal style. It also takes some serious grooming game. This is especially true for the world's leading men, who spend their days and nights basking in the limelight. After all, fame comes with responsibilities, like staying ahead of the curve when it comes to hair trends. It's a simple thing to expect when you realize these guys have some of the best hands in the business sculpting their perfect ’dos. In fact, without them how would you, or any guy, know what kind of haircut to ask for? And whose photo would you bring to the barber, for that matter? The good news is that this year has already gifted us with a fresh batch of hair gods, and more are soon to come (i.e., when Jon Snow comes back to life) as 2016 rolls on. To get you started, here are 2016's very best famous haircuts, so far. OSCAR ISAAC, THE WAVY GENTLEMAN RYAN GOSLING, THE OLD HOLLYWOOD H...

What Cronenberg's Movie The Fly Can Teach Us About Trigger Warnings
Huffington Post - over 1 year
There's this scene in David Cronenberg's movie The Fly that's pretty hard to watch. Actually, there are a lot of scenes in that movie that are pretty hard to watch. That's kind of the point of the movie, which is also kind of the point of this essay, but first, let's describe the scene in question in order to get to the essay in question. Before we get started, I should mention that I teach an undergraduate class focusing on the psychological, cultural and neurobiological aspects of horror films. The scene I want to talk about triggered a discussion among some of my students about whether there ought to be a "trigger warning" before we discuss the movie in class. In the scene that is the subject of this essay and also the subject of the discussion I had with my students, the unfortunate scientist (played by Jeff Goldblum) is well on his way to becoming a fly-human hybrid and engages in about fifteen straight hours of sexual activity with his increasingly uncomfortable l...

Hotel Guest Wants Jeff Goldblum Photos (And That's What He Gets)
Huffington Post - over 1 year
When Seth Freedland reserved a room at the Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica, California, he made one teeny-weeny little request: Fill the room with Jeff Goldblum photos. Why Goldblum and not another “Jurassic Park” star like, say, Wayne Knight? “Jeff Goldblum is my girlfriend’s celebrity crush,” Freedland told The Huffington Post by email. “Specifically, she’s a big fan of ‘Independence Day’-era ‘heroic Goldblum.’ I’m more a ‘Big Chill’ Goldblum man myself, but you really can’t go wrong.” Freedland, a speechwriter at Nike, was half-joking when he made the bizarre request for a “few framed photos of Jeff Goldblum in the room” and didn’t know the hotel would take it seriously. But when he and girlfriend Amy Marsh checked into the room on Saturday, they saw it blooming with Goldblum pics: There were photos of the actor in the bathroom: By the phone: By the other phone: And, yes, Marsh was delighted. “I think it’s fair to describe her as shocked,...

Chris Hemsworth Helped Baby Bro Liam Audition For 'Independence Day: Resurgence'
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Aussie brothers Liam and Chris Hemsworth are just like you. They do normal brotherly things like attend movie premieres, snap pictures of each other at the beach and even help one another audition for big-budget movies. That's how Liam landed the part of Jake Morrison in the sequel to 1996's Independence Day, Independence Day: Resurgence. Liam along with Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Jessie T. Usher and the film's Director Roland Emmerich stopped by AOL BUILD on June 14th to talk all things Resurgence, including the audition process for the newbies. For the younger Hemsworth the audition process started two years ago when he met with Emmerich. "He told me his vision for this film," Liam said, "and I was very excited by that." Two months later, Emmerich told Liam to "send a couple of tapes in" from a few different scenes. Liam enlisted the help of his older brother Chris, who he was staying with at the time, and the rest is history. "He played Patricia," Emm...

Samsung justifies its touchscreen fridge with talking chocolate syrup and maimed cupcakes
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
"Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could," Jeff Goldblum famously said in Jurassic Park, "that they didn't stop to think if they should." Yes, he was talking about cloned dinosaurs at the time, but the charge could also be leveled at the Samsung scientists who designed a fridge with a huge touchscreen in the front. Samsung showed off the device at CES earlier this year, but only now seems to be justifying why it exists — with talking bottles of chocolate syrup. The company's new ad stars real-life celebrity couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, showing them pack away their groceries in Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator.
