Morning Man Classic: Jeff Bridges!
The Dude turns 72 today.
Wishing beloved actor Jeff Bridges a very happy birthday and he continues to wage his battle with lymphoma.
This handsome guy has been a big star since 1971′s The Last Picture Show and he’s been going strong ever since. He is currently in production on the action-drama series The Old Man, in which he stars in and is executive producing. The series is set to debut on FX on Hulu in 2021,
I really developed a crush on him after seeing him in Against All Odds. I don’t think he’s ever been so sexy in a movie and he’s been plenty sexy in lots of them including Jagged Edge, Starman and The Fabulous Baker Boys.
What is so impressive about Jeff is how he has lasted so long as an A-List actor in major films scoring Oscar nominations for The Last Picture Show and Thunderbolt and Lightfoot in the 1970s, Starman in 1985, and The Contender in 2001.
On his fifth nomination, for Crazy Heart in 2009, he finally won an Oscar. The next year, he was nominated again for True Grit and most recently in 2017 for Hell or High Water.
His other memorable films include Tron, The Fisher King, The Big Lebowski, Fearless, Fat City, Bad Company, King Kong, Tucker: The Man and His Dream, American Heart, Seabiscuit, and Iron Man, among others.
