Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum gave their fans a Jurassic-sized quarantine reunion on Monday after Neill posted videos of the two delivering duets of several classic songs, including “I Remember You” and “A Fine Romance.”
The Jurassic World: Dominion stars, who are currently filming the Colin Trevorrow-directed film in the U.K., appeared side-by-side in the videos, which ran from just over one-minute to nearly three-minutes in length. Goldblum mostly played the piano and provided back-up vocals to Neill’s take on the 1962 hit “I Remember You,” which he posted to Twitter. The song was famously covered by Doris Day and originally sung by Australian country singer Frank Ifield.

“It’s a day off. So we’ve been singing a bunch of old songs. Jeff won’t practice, so it’s first go or nothing,” Neill wrote in the caption of the “A Fine Romance” video, which he posted to his Instagram account. “@jeffgoldblum makes me laugh immoderately.”
During their renditions of musical numbers, including Swing Time‘s “A Fine Romance” and My Fair Lady’s “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face,” the two crooned together in a sing-songy conversation, occasionally breaking between lines for a little call-and-response and to crack a few jokes.
In response to Neill’s Twitter post, JoJo Rabbit and Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi tweeted, “This week just gets better and BETTER. Two of my favourite ls right here.”
The videos are the latest in a series of quarantine social media posts from the Thor: Ragnorak and The Hunt For Red October star. The videos have ranged from hilariously personal clips of the actor drinking wine, washing his shoes and talking to gnomes to Neill reciting poetry and singing Radiohead. Neill has also shared a series of short films filmed remotely featuring former Happy Town co-star Steven Weber, Matrix actor Hugo Weaving, and Helena Bonham Carter.
