Jeff Bridges wants Big Lebowski remake
Jeff Bridges wouldn't mind a 'Big Lebowski' remake - but only if he's involved in it.
The 68-year-old actor starred as Jeffrey 'The Dude' Lebowski in the 1998 crime comedy film and has admitted, although he doesn't mind if another director wants to recreate the successful blockbuster, he wants to be the one to reprise the role.
Speaking to Variety, he said when asked about a remake: "Yeah, if I was in it!"
Asked if he has any big memories from his time shooting the film, he explained: So many things flash. I'm thinking of the day that I invited my wife to come, and my girls, to come visit me on set. It was the day that I was to be pulled on a little skateboard underneath all these bowling pin careens and looking up at the vaginas as I passed. I asked if I could take a picture, this is a good photo opportunity, and she said to me" 'By all means do.' So I get on my skateboard and I look up and I see these...tufts...bundles of pubic hair. And I learned that they had all played a joke on The Dude, had stuffed their crotches."
Bridges has just wrapped up playing Father Daniel Flynn in 'Bad Times at the El Royale' and, although it was director Drew Goddard's script that drew him to the role, Jon Hamm agreed to join the cast because he heard the actor was on board.
He explained: "The amount of talent in front of the camera is, I think, only exceeded by the amount of talent behind the camera. So it was such a truly inspiring group of folks to work with. Especially in the case with Jeff, people I've wanted to work with since I was in college or even younger. So to get that opportunity, you gotta jump with both feet."
