Jeff Goldblum in THE SIMPSONS’ “Steamed Hams” Is No Longer Officially Online, Alas

Is there anything Jeff Goldblum won’t do for our very personal amusement? The guy rates tattoos of himself, answers the most bizarre Google questions, and literally plays with himself on national TV. And now, in the beginning of what is sure to be another delightful press tour for the new Jurassic World sequel, he for some reason offers his take on that semi-beloved, ever-put-upon denizen of The Simpsons‘ Springfield, Principal Skinner.

The best part is that he doesn’t even recognize the script, and has no idea what it is until he’s told afterward. So he’s going in completely cold, with no preconceptions about how Skinner should be portrayed, or even what his pre-existing relationship with Superintendent Chalmers is. In full ‘blum, Skinner comes off less as a bumbling, awkward fibber, but a charming con man able to cover his less-than-competent tracks with ease.

Much credit to the team at Gamespot for coming up with this idea, and persuading Universal and The Jeff (do people call him that? We should start) to go along with it. We look forward to seeing if they managed to get Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard to voice Bart and Lisa Simpson. Life, after all, finds a way.

Also, in a hypothetical live-action Simpsons, Goldblum would be an interesting choice for Professor Frink. Just saying. He makes you laugh and he makes you think.

What did you think of this particular reading of “Steamed Hams”? Is there another offbeat script that could drastically use the addition of Goldblum? Give us your chaos theories in comments.

UPDATE: And it’s gone, and this may be the reason why…
