While there wasn’t any news coming from CinemaCon this week about the Jurassic World sequel, some interviewers were there asking the important questions, and to the right people. In an interview with Fandango, Jeff Goldblum, who was there answering questions about the upcoming Independence Day: Resurgence, was asked if he would return to the Jurassic Park franchise.

It’s been almost 20 years since we last saw him dodging dinosaurs in The Lost World: Jurassic Park, so are any plans in the works to bring him back for the sequel to Jurassic World, due in 2018?

“Yes, in 20 years!” Goldblum joked. “Nah, I have no plans. They’re doing very well without me.”

When we told him the sequel would greatly benefit from his presence, he thanked us profusely. “Yes, yes, but what movie doesn’t need a little seasoning of Goldblum? So few. The Danish Girl? No, not really. Not that one.”

You might assume that would be the end of it, but he did go on to say he’d be open to the idea of appearing in another Jurassic film. (In fact, from what I gather, he sounded interested in appearing in any and all films for that matter):

“I’m nothing if not open. I’m like an open-faced sandwich. My door is not always open — I took the door off. I removed the hinges from the door. I’m too open. I’m like a chicken piccata. What was I about to say? Oh yes, the two [Jurassic] movies I did with them were plenty. If I never did anything more, I’d certainly be well satisfied.”

Many fans would like to at least have a cameo from Ian Malcom, perhaps giving a lecture or appearing on a television show, to say I told you so, and plug a new book on the dangers of man playing god.

Would you like to see Ian Malcolm make a small appearance in the new Jurassic World sequel due out in 2018, or even show up as a main character role in a later film? Or should we just stick to new characters only and let Malcolm’s face on the back of a book be his only appearance in the films? Sound off in the comments below!
