Jeff Bridges is an actor, he is also a cowboy, a prince and most awesome of all a cgi avatar of Jeff Bridges.
Jeff Bridges was born in Los Angeles in 1949 around the same time that Superman carried out an illicit affair with his mother Dorothy Bridges (according to my lawyer, this is purely coincidence.) he has an older, and significantly less incredible brother named Beau bridges, also an actor. It is believed that the reason for his brother's lameness is the lack of kryptonian dna is his system(of course, this is just a theory).
Jeff's first role of any note was in 1971's Last picture show, after that he appeared in many , many movies (try saying that pissed) including Last American Hero and that shitty King Kong remake. However his career truly boomed when he starred in Tron, which is basically the Matrix without the ham-fisted biblical references and terrible acting, also it has Light Cycles, which automatically makes it one of the top ten movies of all time.
Of course the main reason the internet loves him is The Big Lebowski, if your one of the six people who haven't seen that film then see it now, I'll wait....
...done, good isn't it?
recently he won an academy award for best actor (YES! MOTHER-FUCKING YES!!) in the genre defying biopic (in that it isn't actually about anyone from the real world) Crazy Heart, about a down on his luck country singer who yadda yadda WATCH THE FILM!!
sorry if I sound testy, I guess I'm just sad that this article is coming to a close,
