Today is Jeff Bridges' 63rd birthday! I can't believe the spectacular film legacy he's created in over 40 years (over 60 years if you count his role as an infant in The Company She Keeps). As usual with famous birthdays I would like to honour this actor by discussing some of my favourite films.
One of my favourite films of all time, without a doubt, is The Last Unicorn (I really should have put it on my Top 10). Jeff Bridges is the brave and dashing Prince Lir who falls in love with the mysterious Amalthea. Unbeknownst to him Amalthea has a secret that changes everything.
This handsome man is Jeff Bridges as Christopher Sheldon, otherwise known as "Skipper" in White Squall. A typical Ridley Scott film of epic proportions, Skipper has to help his young crew survive one of the worst possible storms in the ocean. It's inspiring, touching and suspenseful. A truly terrific film that should never be forgotten.
That's quite the Dude there, wearing a bathrobe in a supermarket and openly drinking half and half. In fact that's his name, the Dude from The Big Lebowski. His real name is Lebowski but no one calls him that and it's this fact alone that creates utter disaster. Full of unusual humour and adventure, a true Coen brothers film.
I've only mentioned a few but Jeff Bridges has been in 74 films (once again, 75 if you include his infant role). If you're sitting there counting and think wait, there's only 73, you'd be right except he just finished a movie that premiers next year called R.I.P.D. I found out by looking at his filmography on his website. I'm really excited since IMDb describes the synopsis as a movie about an undead police department known as the Rest In Peace Department (R.I.P.D.). The cast looks phenomenal as well since it's also starring Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Bacon and Mary-Louise Parker. It's directed by Robert Schwentke who's directed RED (Retired and Extremely Dangerous), Flightplan and The Time Traveler's Wife. How have I not heard of this movie before?
Happy birthday Jeff Bridges! I can't wait to see your next film!
