This smart and nerdy actor from Jurassic Park and Independence Day, Jeff Goldblum might have added another role to his long list of credits: the voice of Siri.

Yes, in a show, Goldblum said that, "Steve Jobs called me up a few decades ago to be the voice of Apple. That was early on, and I did not know it was Steve Jobs.


Sadly, the collaboration never came to pass. A Georgia-based voiceover actress named Susan Bennett went on to become the first voice of Siri.

Gamers may remember that Goldblum did, however, end up doing some voiceover work for Call of Duty: Black Ops III alongside actors like Heather Graham, Ron Perlman, and Neal McDonough.

Goldblum last year reprised his role of David Levinson in Independence Day: Resurgence. In the movie, his character serves as the first Director of the Earth Space Defense (ESD) program, giving his iconic smart yet laconic commentary as events unfold: "That's definitely bigger than the last one" he says, as alien ships descend.
