2017 saw Jeff Goldblum crowned the GQ International Icon at the Men Of The Year Awards, and whilst we would love to take credit for the fact that the actor is hot property right now, we can’t deny the fact that Goldblum has been one of the more beloved celebrities for quite some time.
The man not only has some serious fashion chops that see any red carpet event or award’s night turn into a Jeff Goldblum flex, but he’s also incredibly wise, and radiates an energy and general enthusiasm for life and its curiosities that is infectious. Not surprisingly, the man has come to be regarded as everyone’s ideal dad. We all want to be in his presence, to delight in his conversational style and tone, and to bear witness to his hilarious and, often profound, thoughts.
And while we may not have struck gold in the genetic lottery to claim Goldblum as a biological father, we can still see his charismatic charm play out on the small screen thanks to a new docuseries set to be released on Disney’s upcoming streaming platform, Disney+.
Announced at their Investor Day presentation in Burbank, California, Disney will stream the National Geographic-produced series titled, The World According To Jeff Goldblum.
Per Disney reports: “Jeff pulls back the curtain on a seemingly familiar object to reveal a world of astonishing connections, fascinating science, and a whole lot of big ideas.”
Goldblum’s show is one of at least 25 original series that will be released to Disney+ in its first year, along with 10 original films, documentaries and specials.The decision comes after Disney bought Nat Geo when it acquired 20th Century Fox’s film and TV assets.
Also ordered from Nat Geo was another docuseries titled Magic of the Animal Kingdom, which “takes viewers behind the scenes with the highly respected animal-care experts, veterinarians, and biologists at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Epcot’s SseaBase acquarium.”
There’s no denying that Goldblum has a star power that will see audiences flock to their televisions. His most famous role may have been that of Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park, along with an introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his portrayal of a gregarious villain The Grandmaster in Thor: Ragnarok. But to hear Goldblum reveal the curiosities of the world – now that’s something we want to see.
Currently, The World According to Jeff Goldblum doesn’t have a release date, but Disney+ will launch on November 12 in the US and expand globally by the end of 2021.
