Clocking in at a little more than three minutes, the video features Jeff Goldblum having a discussion with David Levinson, his character from the original Independence Day and the upcoming sequel. The double dose of Goldblum is ostensibly intended to clear up any confusion about the difference between the actor and the character he plays in the sci-fi franchise, but it’s really just a ridiculously entertaining reminder of why the veteran actor is so much fun to watch.
In the video, the pair discuss everything from their professional accomplishments to their eye color — with the latter topic prompting Goldblum to describe Levinson’s eyes as “the color of a glass of brandy on a table as the sun comes in the window at sunset.”
“Really? Well, I guess that’s an actor talking,” remarks Levinson.
Directed once again by Roland Emmerich, Independence Day: Resurgence picks up 20 years after the events of the original film, with the alien invaders that nearly wiped out humanity returning with an even greater armada. Although the human race has had two decades to prepare for the next invasion, even that might not be enough this time.
Along with Goldblum reprising his role from the 1996 movie, the film also brings back original cast members Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, and Brent Spiner. Newcomers to the franchise this time around include Liam Hemsworth, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, and Sela Ward.
Independence Day: Resurgence is scheduled to hit theaters June 24.
