Which Jeff Goldblum Character Are You, Based On Your Zodiac?

Jeff Goldblum is a weird guy. He's also a talented actor who has played dozens of roles that run the whole gamut of emotion and animated intensity - in many ways, he's the opposite of the stoic Keanu Reeves. So, it only makes sense that we'd try to define the Jeff Goldblum character for each zodiac sign, right? Whether you're looking to transform yourself like scientist Seth Brundle in The Fly, or feel like an alien from outer space like Mac in Earth Girls Are Easy, there's a place for everyone on The Goldblum Spectrum. 

So, which Jeff Goldblum character are you based on your zodiac sign? Read on to find out which Goldblum traits you own, and which you're attracted to. It'll help you be your best Jeff Goldblum.


  • Aries (March 21- April 19): Alistair Hennessey

    Aries is a restless and competitive sign. They're courageous and confident and never satisfied with coming in second. Jeff Goldblum plays the much more successful and wealthy Alistair Hennessey to Bill Murray's Steve Zissou in Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.

    But, along with that success comes the Ram's trademark impatience, which can be seen when Hennessey smacks the dog.

  • Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Ed Okin

    Taurus is slow and steady. They are practical, so they dislike change and are willing to put in the time to reach success. And while Jeff Goldblum doesn't often play quiet and subtle characters, that's just what we get from his performance as Ed Okin in Into the Night. He has a boring day job that doesn't bother him, and he suffers from insomnia.

    But after he catches his wife cheating on him, he goes on a caper with a jewel thief (Michelle Pfeiffer) that involves the Shah of Iran. All while playing the straight man.

  • Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Donald Ripley

    Geminis are fascinated with the world around them and are always looking for answers. They're inquisitive, sociable, and full of energy. In the supernatural drama Powder, Goldblum portrays the compassionate (and animated) physics teacher Donald Ripley.

    Ripley seeks out an explanation for Reed's powers while helping the young man handle his role as an outcast, ultimately feeling compassion for his struggles. 

  • Cancer (June 21 - July 22): David Jason

    Cancer is a sign of intensity and confidence. They also care greatly about familial connections and are fiercely loyal. There's no doubt that Goldblum's portrayal of drug-trafficking lawyer David Jason in Deep Cover is one of his most intense roles in a career full of intense performances. But Jason is also dedicated to his partner-in-crime John Hull (Laurence Fishburne), an undercover cop that ends up killing Jason in self-defense.

    A dash of that trademark Cancer paranoia may have helped him out a bit in this situation.

  • Leo (July 23 - August 22): Michael Gold

    Leo is a social butterfly who can be counted on for witty retorts and a boatload of self-confidence. Leo is often surrounded by friends, the same way journalist Michael Gold is in The Big Chill, the '80s dramedy starring Jeff Goldblum, Glenn Close, and Tom Berenger. Gold spends his professional life writing tiny blurbs for People magazine while holding court among his friends.

    Like any true Leo, he will not be ignored and he believes his opinion matters so much more than those of anyone else.

  • Virgo (August 23 - September 22): David Levinson

    Virgo is methodical, compassionate, and has a deep sense of humanity. They're analytical, of course, but they're also their own worst critics and have trouble relaxing and finding the fun in life. When the Earth needs a few heroes to save the planet from imminent destruction in Roland Emmerich's Independence Day, we all count on Will Smith.

    We don't expect Jeff Goldblum's nerdy MIT-educated tech expert to put on a flight suit and go nose to nose with city-sized spaceships, but that's exactly what happens. And it's just what humankind needs at that very moment.
