Luke Owen chats with Thor: Ragnarok star Jeff Goldblum…
Here’s a fun fact for you: interviewing Jeff Goldblum for only five minutes isn’t easy. The fellow journalists I was with all talked about how they barely got anything from him regarding Thor: Ragnarok with one interviewer saying he spent the whole time singing songs about London. Jeff Goldblum is an absolute treasure. The first minute of our interview was Mr. Goldblum talking about how much he loved my shoes.
We did, however, get him to talk about what attracted him to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the character of Grandmaster and working with Taika Waititi. Check out our exclusive interview below, as well as Goldblum’s thoughts on his previous work including The Fly and Earth Girls Are Easy.

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk.
Thor: Ragnarok is being directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) and features Marvel veterans Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk alongside Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Karl Urban as Skurge, Taika Waititi as Korg, Clancy Brown as Surtur, Rachel House as Topaz, Tadanobu Asano as Hogun and Sam Neill in an as-yet-unrevealed role. It is set for release on October 24th in the UK and November 3rd in the States.
