Jeff Goldblum has just delivered some tragic news about the Jurassic World sequel.

Speaking on this Friday’s Graham Norton Show, the Hollywood legend revealed that he won’t be bringing his character back for the sequel.

“Yes. I was available. But had a big satisfying meal with being in two of them,” Goldblum said when quizzed about his Jurassic Park character.

Earlier during a promotional screening for Independence Day: Resurgence (a sequel that is welcoming Goldblum with open arms), the actor continued with his food metaphors.

“Yes. I was available. But had a big satisfying meal with being in two of them.”

“If I never did any more, I’d be entirely nourished and happy and fulfilled from having done these. They’re doing spectacularly well without me,” he explained.

Still, at least this leaves the door slightly ajar for Goldblum to return. It’s pretty much confirmation that Malcom is still alive and kicking in the Jurassic universe.

Goldblum played Malcolm in 1993’s Jurassic Park and the 1997 sequel The Lost World.

Jurassic World, which switched in franchise stars Goldblum, Laura Dern and Sam Neill for Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, delivered a T-rex-sized $1.6 billion at the box office.

The follow-up is due for release in summer 2018 with both Pratt and Howard back for another round of dinosaur carnage.

Goldblum will be back saving the world from aliens in the Independence Day sequel later this month. Get a good look at what to expect in the trailer for it below…
