Watched an older Jeff Bridges movie last night "The Last Picture show", not sure if many of you have seen it but i wanted to give the man his own thread and some credit. Alot of people have jumped on the JB bandwagon because of True Grit but man he's been around for awhile and the man can flat out act! Some of my favorite Jeff Bridges movies are...
The Last Picture Show
The Last Unicorn (yeah was a voice role but movie kicked arse & needs some love lol)
Against all Odds
8 million ways to die
Tucker: The man and his dreams
Fabulous Baker Boys (with his bro)
The Fisher King (Terry Gilliam!!)
American Heart (awesome very moving flick w/ Edward Furlong)
Yes i left off Lebowski, True Grit, Crazy Heart & Tron and those are really great...just wanted to list some of the lesser known ones. Most of those were before he was considered "Big" to alot of people. Glad he get's the recognition he deserves now but i do feel like he was under-appreciated in the past, it's funny how people remember him as "The Dude" but not as alot of other great characters. Just my 2-cents and Kudos to you Mr. Bridges
Yes he was the Prince's voice in unicorn, i actually need to watch A door in the Floor haven't seen that one yet. As for American Heart...yeah it was extremely depressing but well done and very true in alot of cases.
Oh, I forgot about Door in the Floor. Awesome movie. Bridges and Irving is a winning combo.
Who does he play in Last Picture Show? Sonny, I assume?
He plays Duane, Texasville is the follow up....alot of people missed that one. Picks up 30 years after the first one in 1984 i believe.
Just read also that he would like to make a sequel to Starman (which they left on a bit of a cliffhanger) and another 3rd film following Texasville...i would be all over both of those.
