Those of you who know me, know one thing at least – that I love Jeff Bridges. He is an actor who has remained cloaked to most throughout the years, and didn’t really surface in the main stream until the indie hit “Crazy Heart” garnished Bridges his first actual Oscar. Jeff Bridges is an actor with so much range it’s mind blowing, and to say the least – Jeff Bridges is a cinematic treasure. Here are my top ten performances by Jeff Bridges.
- Ted Cole, “The Door in the Floor”
- Tom Friend, “Masked and Anonymous”
- Duane Jackson, “The Last Picture Show”/”Texasville”
- Rooster Cogburn, “True Grit”
- Bad Blake, “Crazy Heart”
- President Jackson Evans, “The Contender”
- The Dude, “The Big Lebowski”
- Lightfoot, “Thunderbolt and Lightfoot”
- Obidiah Stane, “Iron Man”
- Jack, “The Fisher King”
Note: My Mom came over one night during the holidays to watch a movie (my Mom doesn’t really watch that many movies) and she told me she hasn’t seen “Iron Man 2” yet. She was shocked when I told her I didn’t have it. I told her that I didn’t think it was very good. She replied: “It’s hard to outdo Jeff Bridges, dude.”
I love my Mother.
