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.
