As with Wes Anderson's previous movies, there isn't a detail overlooked or a hair out of place in “The Grand Budapest Hotel” -- no mean feat given the myriad mustaches and bumper crop of beards that careen across the screen (no more than three or four of the male characters in the entire film were clean shaven). With last weekend's wider release giving more people the opportunity to check into the Grand Budapest, we checked in with makeup, hair and prosthetics designer Frances Hannon to deconstruct the whisker wizardy, walk through the sculpting of tonsorial topiaries (incuding Jeff Goldblum's epic Freudian facial fuzz)

Sitting down in a room with Jeff Goldblum is a little bit like stepping into a David Lynch film. Time slows down, and things are not always what they seem. "I like to be at home. We just got this new dog. We only have one television. It's not in the bedroom. It's in the living room, and it's quite big. We got a new couch, and I like that a lot. It's very, very comfortable."

Jeff Goldblum has never been very good at sitting still. So when he was asked earlier this month to pose for a portrait, he handled the situation in his typical antsy fashion. "Let's play a game. It will be a social lubricant," he implored a room full of publicists and assistants observing his photo shoot, from which he was trying to distract himself. "I name two actors, and you have to say which one you'd rather have sex with. " The onlookers approved ? on the condition that Goldblum would answer such a question himself.

"Who is that guy playing piano?" asked the perfect, young California blond woman. "That's Jeff Goldblum," was the answer. "The actor." Pause. "He's been in a lot of movies." "Oh," she sighed, her pink forehead furrowing as she searched her martini-soaked memory. Then, a smile of recognition. "Oh, yeah. 'The Fly' guy. Cool." Yeah, the actor who played the title character in "The Fly" and his band, the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, offer jazz to a packed house every Monday night at Fenix.

What do you do when playing jazz gives you a tremendous high, but you've got this other career as a movie star to worry about? When booking a gig under your name is sure to draw crowds of fans who are not necessarily present to revel in your skills as a jazz pianist? Simple. Put together a band of talented young players and give them a diversionary title--something like "The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra."

In the role of Capt. Hennessey, he's a chardonnay-sipping scientist who brings his own designer couch to sit aboard a rival's decrepit ship -- a debonair oceanographer who revels in showing up his nemesis in the new Wes Anderson film, "The Life Aquatic." It's a small part but a perfect fit for Jeff Goldblum, who, in his 30 years on screen, has had a knack for getting involved with artful, offbeat directors in their prime.

Masochism is the chief prerequisite for a private writing seminar with Leonard, the fearsome teacher, writer and editor conducting a mini reign of terror in Theresa Rebeck's Broadway comedy "Seminar," now at the Ahmanson Theatre. Played by Jeff Goldblum as a snarling narcissist in designer sportswear better suited to someone half his age, this pedagogical terrorist has agreed to lead a writing workshop with four fiercely competitive students, each of whom has paid $5,000 for the privilege of having their fiction eviscerated with a shrug and a yawn.

Even without his Tyrannosaurus rex co-stars from "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" (which opens tonight with sneak screenings starting at 10), Jeff Goldblum can bring plenty of drama to a simple conversation. His eyes can fix on a point somewhere above your shoulder, as if he's spotting a prehistoric intruder; his voice drops to a near-inaudible whisper before sailing up to a top-register giggly squeal.

Jeff Goldblum and his hometown of Pittsburgh, whether it likes it or not, have combined to create a surprising summer delight. "Pittsburgh" is a witty variation on a Christopher Guest mockumentary that swirls together fiction, reality and an unlikely cast including Goldblum, Ed Begley Jr., Illeana Douglas, Moby, Conan O'Brien and unsuspecting Pittsburghers, all as themselves.

NBC'S new detective series "Raines" is like "House" or "Shark" -- one name, hard vowel, must be good at puzzles. "Raines," like those, is about the burden of brilliance on social skills, but whereas "House" rants and "Shark" babbles, "Raines" does a lot of inscrutable staring, and mumbling to himself in cars, having imaginary conversations with murder victims.
