Jeff Goldblum stars in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Blu-ray short film as Darryl’s roommate
The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s unlikeliest member makes a third appearance in a new exclusive short included in the “Thor: Ragnarok” Blu-ray release.
According to Disney, now that Thor has gone off to save his people, everyday guy Darryl played by Australian actor Daley Pearson is looking for a new roommate. Along comes the recently dethroned and possibly homeless Grandmaster, played by Jeff Goldblum.
Titled “Team Darryl”, the new short shows Grandmaster moving in with Darryl, making life all the more interesting.
Goldblum previously hinted at the short back in October 2017 during an interview with Radio Times.
“I shot a thing with Taika, where there’s a roommate in Australia. I show up at his, and I do knock on his door,” said the actor. “And I take up residence in the little flat, as they say here. That’s what I do. And order things from the takeaway restaurant. Buy all the local foods.”
Two previous shorts titled “Team Thor” featured Thor (Chris Hemsworth) bunking in with Darryl. The shorts attempted to comically explain why Thor was not included in “Captain America: Civil War”. The god of Thunder basically hung around Darryl’s home and workplace, sourgraping about not being in “Civil War”. Alfred Bayle/JB
