Jeff Goldblum's back for Independence Day 2, but what about Jurassic World?

In the '90s, Jeff Goldblum was at the top of the sci-fi food chain. The actor appeared in several big-budget films that tackled the darker side of science. Arguably, the most notable being Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park: The Lost World and Independence Day. Over the past few years, both properties have been targeted for sequels.

Director Roland Emmerich has been very vocal about having Goldblum return for Independence Day 2. With the exception of Will Smith, he hopes to have most of the original cast on board. In an interview with Huffington Post, Goldblum confirmed that he's in talks for the film.

"Yeah, they've talked to me about it and I've talked to them about it and they're excited and I'm anxious and eager to see –– I haven't read anything -- what they cook up. You know, I think they're trying to put it together."

Will the actor give Jurassic World the same courtesy? Goldblum reveals that he won't be appearing in the film for the same reason he wasn't in Jurassic Park III. "Nobody asked me," he explained. "They haven't called me for '4,' I know Steven Spielberg isn't directing it."

So there you have it. Dr. Malcolm may be a no-go, but David Levinson is on the table.
