Poll Results!

Well the poll results are in. After 13 votes (there is over a 100 of you who visit here every day – what the fuck?) Your favorite Jeff Bridges performance is The Dude from The Big Lebowski. That is an admirable pick, but I do hope a lot of you have seen a good portion of his work and aren’t channeling the 15 year old kids who think it’s trendy to quote the movie, and the Dude without understand what the film is really about…

Okay – I’ll get off my intellectually pompous soap box.

With one vote (from me) is Ted Cole – Bridges’ character from “The Door in the Floor”.

With one vote (from the ying of my yang) is –Bad Blake, Bridges’ Oscar winning performance from “Crazy Heart”

And with a whopping eleven votes is The Dude.

I think Jeff Bridges would definitely abide.

Everybody relax, Frank's here. After going to film school at Columbia College Chicago, Frank decided to underachieve with his vast knowledge of film into a career in civil service. Frank had a brief stint as a film blogger, and then he met the heterosexual love of his life, Nick Clement. The two instantly bonded over their love from everything to Terence Malick to THE EXPENDABLES films. Some of Frank's favorite filmmakers are Terence Malick, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Sylvester Stallone, Oliver Stone and Spike Lee. Some of his favorite films are THE TREE OF LIFE, STAR WARS (all of them), BAD LIEUTENANT, THE THING and ALL THAT JAZZ. Frank spends his free time with his dog Roger, collecting any Star Wars collectible he can find and trying to finish his pretentious, first person narrative novel(la), LARGE MEN IN SMALL CARS..

    1. He wrote a forward to a book “I’m a Lebowski, You’re a Lebowski” that was written by the guys that started the Lebowski Fests. Bridges will often attend the Lewbowski fests as The Dude – how cool is that?!

      In the forward he talked about the film, and how much the character mirrors himself, and he closes the forward with:

      “People will often ask me what I would think if out of all the roles I’ve played, if I’m most remembered for The Dude.

      I’d be fucking delighted.”
