“The Dude” is having a birthday today! It’s “Dude time”!

Jeffrey Leon “Jeff” Bridges (born December 4, 1949) is an American actor, musician, producer, photographer, cartoonist, storyteller, and occasional vintner. He comes from a well-known acting family and began his first televised acting in 1958 as child with his father, Lloyd Bridges, and brother Beau on television’s “Sea Hunt”. Among his best-known major motion films are: “Tron” (and its sequel), “King Kong”, “Iron Man”, “Starman”, “The Fabulous Baker Boys”, “Against All Odds”, “The Fisher King”,  “Seabiscuit”, “Arlington Road”, and “The Big Lebowski”.

He won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role as Otis “Bad” Blake in the 2009 film “Crazy Heart” and earned his sixth Academy Award nomination for his portrayal of Rooster Cogburn in 2010’s “True Grit”.

But for me, Jeff will always be “the Dude”… Happy Birthday, Dude!

    I do believe the photo from “The Last Picture Show” is Timothy Bottoms, not Jeff Bridges.

      Yes, You are right. See the new Last Picture Show photo from IMDb.com where are Timothy (Left) and Jeff. Thank you very much. I changed the photo. And sorry for the mistake.
