Mike Pence Fly Spawns Jeff Goldblum Jokes as People Point Out Actor Supports Joe Biden

The fly. The first and only Vice Presidential debate of the 2020 election was dominated by an actual fly as one landed on Vice President Mike Pence's head and stayed there for around two minutes.

Amid all of the memes and hot takes from viewers and celebrities, one recurring one was centered on actor Jeff Goldblum—famous for Jurassic Park and of course, the 1986 David Cronenberg film, The Fly.

The beloved actor (who is not a twitter user) is the star of the sci-fi/horror remake, where he played an eccentric scientist who starts turning into a fly due to a botched experiment.

Viewers have been demanding that Goldblum take part in this week's Saturday Night Live to recreate the fly debacle.

Comedian Bob Saget joked: "The Fly just got a show on Netflix. Jeff Goldblum to voice."

The 67-year-old has yet to respond to the frenzy he's found himself involved in but fans have been quick to point out just who the actor is supporting in the upcoming election—and it's the Democrats.

In fact, Goldblum previously was the face of a rally in support of Joe Biden earlier this year.

The event—Pittsburgh Early Vote Rally with Jeff Goldblum hosted by PA Jewish Americans for Biden—was chaired by the actor with the goal of encouraging supporters to start banking votes for Biden and mobilize to make sure their friends, family, and community members did the same.

CNN's Ana Navarro-Cárdenas tweeted: "In case any of you are wondering, Jeff Goldblum is supporting @joebiden and @KamalaHarris. #TheFly."

Back in 2016, Goldblum was on the Clinton campaign and said he was "very frightened" and "very alarmed" at the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Per Huff Post, he said: "Look, horrible things will happen to me, to all of us," he said. "And the talent in life is how to figure out how to navigate that."

Newsweek has reached out to Goldblum's representatives for comment.
