Goldblum plays detective Michael Raines on the new NBC show Raines, and says he tried to channel film noir greats like Bogey and Robert Mitchum for the role.
As he puts it, Id like to think its all me but I watched a lot of classic noir movies for the role like Out Of The Past and Casablanca to get a feel for the character.
Goldblum would also get into character by listening to film noir musical scores and pretending to smoke unlit cigarettes on the set.
He explains: I didnt want him [Raines] to be a smoker but he definitely has the inner soul of a smoker.
Raines debuts March 15.
