Goldblum To Appear On Colbert in 5, 4, 3…


According to Variety (though I can’t link to it because it’s behind a paywall), Jeff Goldblum is leaving Law and Order: I Can’t Even Remember Which One This Is after two seasons. I hope Stephen Colbert will at least have him on for one more episode to tell us why we should not watch the show, after all those appearances where he plugged it.

As for his replacement, some have suggested Geena Davis, but that would make me afraid, very afraid. (Side question: Which movie catchphrase has been more over-referenced, that one from The Fly or “Help me! Help meee!” from the original Fly?) I would suggest that the only acceptable substitute is his partner in wacky hijinks, Ben Vereen.

  1. I think it was Tenspeed and Brown Shoe that had that very odd formula, faithfully followed in every episode, in which the guys would believe, at 40 minutes into the hour, that they had solved the case, only to discover they were wrong. They'd then have 20 minutes to find the real solution and culprit.

  2. Thanks, interesting news. I have always liked CI and have been trying really hard to give the new cast and format a chance, especially with Rene Balcer still teasing us with those Canadian references.

    But the long and confusing intros are, well, long and confusing, almost daring me to give up before the crime has even been committed.

    Goldblum is good, but unfortunately the "bewildered supermodel" (as SNL described it) formula that infected the original L&O has spread to CI. Saffy Burrows apparently studied at the Cindy Crawford Academy, where lesson no. 1 is how to furrow your brows. Oh well.

  3. Nooooo! Jeff Goldblum is so good in C.I. Oh well, it wouldn't have been forever as he is a Hollywood superstar, and they never stay too long in these TV Series'.
    He did a great job; I would've loved to watch another season with him at least!
