THE SWITCH

JEFF GOLDBLUM (Leonard) is one of the most talented and respected actors of his generation. In a career spanning film, television, and theater, Goldblum recently garnered critical attention for his role in Paul Schrader's "Adam Resurrected,” in which he plays Adam, a stage performer who survives the concentration camps during the time of the Holocaust. The film premiered at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals in September 2008 and was released by Bleiberg Entertainment in the U.S. in December of 2008.

Goldblum currently can be seen in the role of detective Zach Nichols on the hit drama series "Law and Order: Criminal Intent,” which premiered on the USA Network on April 19, 2009.

In 2008, Goldblum also 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 2007, Goldblum garnered an Emmy® nomination for his guest appearance on NBC's "Will & Grace.” Previously, he starred in the Universal Studios film "Man of the Year” opposite Robin Williams, Christopher Walken and Laura Linney. Goldblum also starred in Hal Hartley's independent film "Fay Grim” with Parker Posey, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2006 and was screened at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.

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. The documentary then premiered on the Starz channel in 2006 and is currently available on DVD. In 2005, Goldblum received critical praise for his return to Broadway, starring in Martin McDonagh's "The Pillowman” with Billy Crudup, Zeliko 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.

In 2004, Goldblum starred in Wes Anderson's "The Life Aquatic” with Bill Murray, Anjelica Huston, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe and Cate Blanchett. Also in 2004, Goldblum received critical attention starring opposite Anthony LaPaglia and Liev Schreiber in Showtime's "Spinning Boris,” directed by Roger Spottiswoode ("Tomorrow Never Dies”).

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 2002, Goldblum starred in MGM's "Igby Goes Down,” opposite Susan Sarandon, Ryan Philippe and Claire Danes. The film was written and directed by Burr Steers, a former acting student of Goldblum's at Playhouse West.

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.”

Goldblum's long list of film credits includes roles in some of the highest-grossing films of all time, including Steven Spielberg's worldwide box-office success "Jurassic Park,” and Roland Emmerich's science-fiction thriller, "Independence Day.” Other film credits include "The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” "Holy Man,” "The Prince of Egypt,” Chris Colombus' "Nine Months,” Woody Allen's "Annie Hall,” Lawrence Kasdan's "The Big Chill,” "Silverado,” "The Fly,” "Deep Cover,” Paul Mazursky's "Next Stop Greenwich Village,” "Remember My Name,” "The Right Stuff,” "Threshold,” "Between the Lines,” "Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” "The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai,” "Into the Night” and "The Tall Guy.” On television, Goldblum starred in the Showtime original film "Lush Life” with Forest Whitaker and Kathy Baker.

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 and occasionally plays piano with Peter Weller on trumpet in their live-performing jazz band, The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra.

Goldblum is currently in London, performing on the West End in "The Prisoner of Second Avenue.”
