Jeff Goldblum, as his enviable career has repeatedly proven, is a national treasure that should be protected at all costs. Jurassic Park? Classic. The Lost World: Jurassic Park? Very classic. Independence Day? Almost too classic. Those Apartments.com commercials? Surprisingly, yes, also very classic. The living legend, who's currently making the publicity rounds ahead of the release of Independence Day: Resurgence, recently gave Fandango a perplexing but thoroughly entertaining update on his potential place in the post-Jurassic World future.

When asked if he might consider hopping back into the franchise, maybe even in the 2018 sequel to Jurassic World, Goldblum seemed to give a vote of confidence to the idea of returning "in 20 years." That, sadly, was very much a joke. "I have no plans," Goldblum said on Thursday. "They're doing very well without me."

Jurassic World 2, of course, would definitely make for a much better film with the presence of Goldblum. His thoughts on that obvious fact? Predictably brilliant. "What movie doesn't need a little seasoning of Goldblum?" Jeff asked, presumably in a serious manner. "So few. The Danish Girl? No, not really. Not that one." In an effort to prove this "seasoning of Goldblum" theory, the actor then launched into this fascinating breakdown of his own personality:

I'm nothing if not open. I'm like an open-faced sandwich. My door is not always open -- I took the door off. I removed the hinges from the door. I'm too open. I'm like a chicken piccata.

Suffering from a distinct lack of Goldblum in your own life? Here he is absolutely slaying some jazz piano:
