5th Graders Are Obsessed With Jeff Goldblum After Seeing 'Jurassic Park'

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. A fifth-grade teacher in Missouri, Samantha Brown, learned that one of her students was a "Jurassic Park" fan. Most of the class hadn't seen the movie, but when they did, the kids got obsessed with Jeff Goldblum, naturally. Ms. Brown started assigning Goldblum-themed writing, math and art projects. The kids' parents then sent a letter to the actor, and he replied.

JEFF GOLDBLUM: That's the sweetest letter that you sent. I was very touched by it.

KING: It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
