With Earth on the brink of destruction yet again in "Independence Day: Resurgence," the Earth Space Defense seeks to debunk a conspiracy theory that dates back to the War of 1996: that agency director David Levinson and actor Jeff Goldblum are the same person.
While they wear the same glasses, talk with similar pauses and hold their chins mid-sentence like a mix between The Thinker and a Ralph Lauren model, they are, in fact, two totally different people, as you can see in the video below.
In Jeff's opinion, David's eyes look like "a glass of brandy on the table as the sun comes into the window at sunset," whereas Jeff's eyes, are said, by the scientist, to be "mahogany." While it seems as if David isn't aware of Jeff as an actor, it's clear that Jeff admires David's career.
"I've pretended to be smart," Jeff said, "but you're really smart." In reply, David said, "I had a lot of brave and genius people who luckily helped me, well, some."
"Independence Day: Resurgence" blasts into theaters on June 24.
