If you ever had to ask any person on the planet incredibly pointless hypothetical questions like, "Who would win in a fight, The Goose from Untitled Goose Game or the Compys from The Lost World?" then the indescribable Jeff Goldblum would surely be the ideal candidate to consider such irrelevant ponderings.
I was given the chance to "sit down" across from Jurrasic Park's Ian Malcolm himself in an incredibly professional studio through the power of Zoom. It was probably one of the most surreal moments in my entire life. As I sat there and asked Jeff these ridiculous scenarios, like who would win between Sonic the Hedgehog and a velociraptor, I couldn't actually believe what was happening.
Please watch as Jeff considers our dinosaur versus gaming icon conundrums below!
So there you have it: Jeff Goldblum thinks God of War's Kratos could take down the T-Rex, and does not seem to like Sonic the Hedgehog's attitude at all, albeit while also approving of the mascot's dietary decisions.
The whole interview was facilitated by the team over at Frontier as part of the promotion for the upcoming Jurassic World Evolution 2 (and you can read our hands-on preview right here), where aside from the 'versus' questions we spoke about his involvement in the games, and how he's spent almost 30 years portraying Ian Malcolm in the Jurassic Park/World franchise. It was fascinating to pick the brain of such a bewildering, beguiling pop culture icon about his involvement in the games and movies.
If you'd like to see the entire chat, please watch the interview below. But please be aware: as professional as I try to be, even through Zoom on a TV rested on a sofa, my feeling of being starstruck still bleeds through.
Although Jeff may not know much about video games in general, it's clear he enjoys working on the Jurassic World Evolution games and the process of recording for the role has been a positive one - albeit not an experience that has left either himself or Ian Malcolm paleontological experts.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 will release November 9 2021 on Xbox consoles, PS4, PS5 and PC.
