Jeff Goldblum stars as Detective Zack Nichols in Season 8 of the USA Network original series "Law & Order: Criminal Intent."
With a career spanning film, television and theater, Jeff Goldblum is one of the most talented and respected actors of his generation.
Goldblum's film career began at the age of 17, when he moved to New York City to study acting under Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse. In less than a year, Joseph Papp cast him in the Broadway hit, "Two Gentlemen of Verona." Soon after, he had his first film audition and was cast as the terrifying rapist in "Death Wish." In contrast to that role, the very next week Robert Altman cast Goldblum as the 20-year-old boy wonder in "California Split," and asked him to play the mysterious biker/magician in "Nashville."
Aside from acting, Goldblum was nominated for an Academy Award for directing the live action short film, "Little Surprises." He served on the jury of the 1999 Cannes Film Festival.
Goldblum's long list of film credits includes roles in some of the highest grossing films of all time, including Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park," and Roland Emmerich's "Independence Day." Other film credits include "The Lost World," "Holy Man," "The Prince of Egypt," "Nine Months," Woody Allen's "Annie Hall," "The Big Chill," "Silverado," "The Fly," "Deep Cover," "The Right Stuff," "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," "Igby Goes Down," and "Fay Grim." On television, Goldblum starred in the Showtime original film "Lush Life" with Forrest Whitaker and Kathy Baker. Most recently, he starred in Paul Schrader's "Adam Resurrected," in which he plays Adam, a stage performer who survives the concentration camps during the Holocaust.
Goldblum starred with Illeana Douglas, Ed Begley Jr. and Moby in a documentary that he also produced, "Pittsburgh," which premiered at The Tribeca Film Festival in April 2006. In 2003, Goldblum starred in "War Stories," a compelling two-hour television movie for NBC, about journalists risking their lives while covering conflicts in the Middle East.
In 2007, Goldblum returned to series television for the first time since 1980 ("Tenspeed and Brown Shoe") as the lead in the NBC drama "Raines." That same year he garnered an Emmy nomination for his guest appearance on NBC's "Will & Grace."
In addition to film and television roles, Goldblum previously starred alongside Kevin Spacey in David Mamet's critically acclaimed play "Speed the Plow" at London's Old Vic Theatre. He dazzled sold-out audiences as Bobby Gould, the marginally less cynical of two contemptuous movie producers. In 2005, Goldblum received critical praise for his return to Broadway, starring in Martin McDonagh's "The Pillowman" with Billy Crudup, Zeljko Ivanek and Michael Stuhlberg. He received an Outer Critics Circle Award for his performance and was nominated for a Drama Desk and Drama League Award. The play received a Drama Critics Award and was nominated for a Tony, Outer Critics Circle, Drama Desk and Drama League Award.
He recently wrapped filming on the film "Morning Glory" with Rachel McAdams and Harrison Ford and "The Baster" with Jennifer Aniston.
Goldblum resides in Los Angeles and occasionally plays piano with Peter Weller on trumpet in their live-performing jazz band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra.
