Jeff Bridges

It’s funny how much when Jeff Bridges name comes up, it’s about his role as ‘The Dude’ in ‘The Big Lebowski’

In all honesty, with all due respect to those that do, I don’t remember liking this Film

So in honor of one of my Favorite All Time Actors, and Human Beings, I thought I’d Post you a bit of what I think of Jeff Bridges

King Kong (1976)

The First Film I remember seeing him in, was The 1976 ‘King Kong’

And as much as I remember liking/enjoying this Film (I was 7 or 8), I remember his Hair being a pretty big part of his role, lol

Tron (1982)

Then came ‘TRON’… This Film had a huge impact on me, and is one of the Core Movies when I think of what inspired me to become a Film Maker… The First Two ‘Star War’s’, and George Lucas, being my main inspiration.

But beyond the beautiful innovation, and artistry of this Film in general, Jeff Bridges as not just Flynn (The Arcade Owning, Video Game Programming Genius), but in particularly his Program Self ‘C.L.U.’, led to one of the best, most human performance moments I’ve ever seen in Film, even now

He shocked/surprised even the Film Makers when he did this scene… Taking what was a robotic type character in an earlier scene, and tearing right into the humanity of all

Starman (1984)

Talk about a human performance… ‘Starman’. Ironically, he’s an alien in this Film, but if you haven’t seen it, see it. His performance is beautiful, and memorable.

The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989)

For some reason, whenever I think about my favorite performance by Jeff Bridges, I always come up with ‘The Fabulous Baker Boys’… Can’t exactly say what it is… There’s just something about the subtle, defeated-ness of this character… And just something about his whole vibe in this Film

Seabisquit (2003)

Another amazing performance… This Film also had another one of my favorites, Tobey Maguire

Crazy Heart (2009)

Only just saw this, loved it.

Tron Legacy (2010)

The palpable Humanity of this role… Astounding
