Now TV commissioned the statue portraying Goldblum in his iconic Jurassic Park look: Dr. Ian Malcolm’s solid black outfit complete with the open button-up shirt. It also displays Goldblum reclined on his side, a famous pose from the movie which all fans will recognize. The area is crowded with people eager to get a picture with the statue and remember the movie and Goldblum’s memorable role. He already has his own hashtag: #JurassicJeff.

What’s To Come

Goldblum returned to the franchise this year, reprising his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, where he stars opposite the up and coming stars for the films, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas. BD Wong came back for the Jurassic World films as well in his role as Dr. Henry Wu. Wong and Goldblum are the only stars from the first films to come back for the Jurassic World iterations.

Jurassic Park premiered on June 11, 1993, in the United States and on July 15, 1993, in the United Kingdom.

Jurassic Jeff will remain in London until July 26.
