American actor Jeff Goldblum handed out free snacks to the people of Sydney, Australia. Why did he choose the city? The actor has an answer to that, and it is something Aussies should look forward to.

Goldblum’s food truck, named “Chef Goldblum's Jazzy Snags," rolled around the city's central business district on Wednesday to hand out free hotdogs and sandwiches. Fans were thrilled to see the actor manning the truck. Some took to social media to share their selfies with Goldblum.

It is unclear why the food truck was named after him. However, when asked why he is in Sydney, Goldblum teased that he is doing a project that has something to do with food.

"I was doing the Thor movie on the Gold Coast some time ago but now I’m doing a project that I have to be secretive about but there is some thematic tie-in to this. I’m doing a little research for some work that I’m going to do in my chosen profession. I like food, I’m very interested in food, but you’ll have to wait," he told the Daily Telegraph.

Goldblum also spoke with Triple M’s Merrick Watts (via Australia News Corp), but he refused to divulge details of the project. “I wish I could (say) but I think very soon you will know. You may be less surprised than you think. I did just film (Thor: Ragnarok) here some months ago and that’s coming out sometime. I worked with ... the Hemsworths and they’re wonderful — I just love them,” he said. The actor portrays The Grandmaster in Chris Hemsworth’s “Thor: Ragnarok."

Goldblum handed out free food at Sydney’s Wynyard and Circular Quay hours after it was confirmed that he will reprise his role as Dr Ian Malcolm in the upcoming “Jurassic World” sequel. The actor will join Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who are also coming back for the sequel.

Jeff Goldblum also appeared in “Jurassic Park” in 1993 and in 1997’s “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” as the charming mathematician who came to the park as an insurance consultant. The actor’s character does not appear in the 2015 blockbuster movie “Jurassic Park III,” but he was mentioned once by Dr. Allan Grant (Sam Neill).

The “Jurassic World” sequel is expected to be released in June 2018. Directors Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow are among the producers of the sequel. J.A. Bayona will direct the franchise instalment.
