Jeff Goldblum’s Desire to Share a Scene with His Marvel Brother, Benicio del Toro Has Me Jonesing for Their Inevitable Taika Waititi Directed Christmas Special

In a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, Thor:  Ragnarok Grandmaster and human specimen extraordinaire, Jeff Goldblum was asked with whom he’d like to see his character have a future scene. After stating the obvious —

“… I overlapped with one day of Cate Blanchett’s shooting and she’s so spectacular as Hela. I keep wanting to have scenes with her.

— he segued into the fact that his Marvel “brother” (Elders of the Universe) exists in the MCU — played by the fabulous Benicio del Toro — and Goldblum said because of that, he’d love to share a scene with The Collector.

… in the comic books, the character of the Grandmaster is the brother of The Collector, played by Benicio del Toro, who I adore. So I would enjoy doing something with him. That would be fun.”

And of course, that would indeed be THE MOST FUN,

but my mind immediately raced to another possible brotherly collaboration.

I do hope you’ve been lucky enough to have experienced the glory that is The Year without a Santa Claus (if you somehow haven’t, get to it right now) and even more importantly, how ripe are we for a new live action version …

… that would obviously include the singing and dancing,

Well, some people do enjoy dancing, Benicio!

and absolutely must be directed by Taika Waititi, and star del Toro as the Heat Miser, and Jeff Goldblum as Snow Miser? Oh, and we’ll need someone great as Mrs. Claus to narrate and participate in the story.

I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. Waititi!

Now let me see, do we know anyone with a great beard, who can carry off a retro Santa suit?


If you’ll please pardon me, I need to go back to bed so I can at least make this happen in my dreams.
