Jeff Goldblum Dishes on His 'Thor: Ragnarok' Role
If you had asked me a couple months ago which actor I would want to see join the Marvel Cinematic Universe more than anyone else, I would have said Jeff Goldblum. That dream became a reality recently with Goldblum being added to the cast of Thor: Ragnarok in the role of The Grandmaster. Now, the 63-year-old actor is sharing some details on the enigmatic role, and it sounds like he's going to totally steal the movie. Here's what he told Empire in a recent interview: 

Opening quote
"He's a hedonist, a pleasure-seeker, an enjoyer of life and tastes and smells. I thought, 'I can do that, I'll bet!' I'm working on my part every day. I'm a sponge, researching. [Director Taika Waititi] is encouraging me to improvise and make it my own, and that's what I'm trying to do. I hope he doesn't throw me out on the first day!"
Closing quote


A hedonistic Goldblum who's allowed to freely improvise in the role? Uh, yes please.

In addition to that awesomeness, The Grandmaster is a pretty cool character in his own right. Like The Collector (who was amazingly portrayed by Benicio del Toro in Guardians of the Galaxy), he is an eccentric elder of the universe, but instead of collecting things, he's obsessed with all types of games.

Game on, Goldblum.
