The son of actor Lloyd Bridges, Jeff Bridges made his screen bow as a petulant infant in the arms of his real-life mother, Dorothy, in the 1950 Jane Greer melodrama The Company She Keeps; his troublesome older brother in that film was played by his real older brother Beau. The younger Bridges made a more formal debut before the cameras at age eight, in an episode of his dad's TV series Sea Hunt. After serving in the Coast Guard reserve, the budding actor studied acting at the Herbert Berghof school. While older brother Beau was developing into a character player, Bridges, thanks in equal parts to his ability and ruggedly handsome looks, became a bona fide leading man. He had his first major success with a leading role in Peter Bogdanovich's The Last Picture Show (1971), for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. Two years later, he won yet another Oscar nomination, this time for Best Supporting Actor in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974). Bridges worked steadily throughout the rest of the 1970s, starring in a number of films, including Hearts of the West (1975) and Stay Hungry (1976). The 1980s brought further triumph, despite starting out inauspiciously with a part in the notoriously ill-fated Heaven's Gate (1981). In 1984, Bridges won yet another Oscar nomination for his leading role in Starman and continued to find acclaim for his work, in such movies as The Morning After (1986) and The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989). The latter featured Bridges and brother Beau as struggling musicians, as well as Michelle Pfeiffer in a performance marked by both the actress' own talent and her ability to roll around on a piano wearing a figure-hugging red velvet dress. Bridges began the 1990s with Texasville, the desultory sequel to The Last Picture Show. Things began to improve with acclaimed performances in Fearless (1993) and American Heart (1995) (the latter marked his producing debut), and the actor found commercial, if not critical, success with the bomb thriller Blown Away in 1994. More success followed, with a lead role in the Barbra Streisand vehicle The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), and as a hapless and perpetually stoned bowling aficionado in the Coen brothers' The Big Lebowski (1998). In 1999, Bridges returned to the thriller genre with Arlington Road, playing the concerned neighbor of urban terrorist Tim Robbins, and then switched gears with Albert Brooks' comedy drama The Muse. In addition to his acting achievements, Bridges has also written some 200 songs, a talent which he memorably incorporated in The Fabulous Baker Boys.Bridges delivered a typically strong performance in 1999's Simpatico, which featured the actor as a horse-breeder embroiled in a complicated scam orchestrated by a once good friend, while The Contender (2000) found him playing a happy-go-lucky U.S. President suddenly forced to decide if his Vice Presidential candidate's rumored sexual escapades will affect his ultimate decision. Though K-PAX (2001) fared badly in theaters, Jeff's performance as Kevin Spacey's character's psychiatrist was solid, as was his role of a soft-spoken kidnapping victim in director Dominique Forma's Scenes of the Crime. 2003 was a polarizing year in terms of critical success -- despite an A-list cast including Bridges himself, Penelope Cruz, and Jessica Lange, Masked and Anonymous went unseen by most, and disliked by the rest. Luckily, Seabiscuit catapulted Bridges back into Hollywood's spotlight, as did Tod Wiliams' Door in the Floor, based on John Irving's novel A Widow for One Year.In 2008, Bridges landed the plum role of the bad guy in the box-office blockbuster Iron Man, but it was his turn as fading country music star Bad Blake in Crazy Heart that earned him the accolades that had eluded the respected actor throughout his career. For his work in that film Bridges captured the SAG award, the Golden Globe, and his fifth Oscar nomination -- marking his second nod in the lead category 25 years after his first for Starman.The next

The Dude says: At least I'm housebroken.

Rooster Cogburn says: If he is not in a shallow grave somewhere between here and Fort Smith he is gone. Long gone! Thanks to Mr. LaBeouf, we have missed our shot. He barked and the birds have flown. Gone. Gone. Gone! Lucky Ned and his cohort gone. Your fifty dollars gone. Gone the whiskey - seized in evidence. The trail is cold, if there ever was one. I'm a foolish old man who's been drawn into a wild goose chase by a harpy in trouser and a nincompoop. Mr. LaBeouf, he can wonder the Choctaw Nation for as long as he likes. Perhaps the local In'jins will take him in and honor his jibberings by making him chief. You, sister, may go where you like. Our engagement is terminated. I bow out.

Rooster Cogburn says: I always go backwards when I'm backing up.

Obadiah Stane says: When I ordered the hit on you, I was worried that I was killing the golden goose. But, you see, it was just fate that you survived it, leaving one last golden egg to give. You really think that just because you have an idea, it belongs to you? Your father, he helped give us the atomic bomb. Now what kind of world would it be today if he was as selfish as you?

The Stranger says: There's just one thing, dude.

The Dude says: What's that?

The Stranger says: Do you have to use so many cuss words?

The Dude says: What the fuck you talkin' about?

The Dude says: You human paraquat!

The Dude says: Strikes and gutters, ups and downs.

Obadiah Stane says: You had a great idea Tony, but my suit is more advanced in every way!

Tony Stark says: How'd you solve the iceing problem?

Obadiah Stane says: Iceing problem? (Suit freezes up).

Obadiah Stane says: Iceing problem? [suit freezes up]

Tony Stark says: Might wanna look into it!

The Dude says: He fixes the cable

The Dude says: He fixes the cable.

Kevin Flynn says: The grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer. What did they look like? Ships, motorcycles. With the circuits like freeways. I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then one day, I got in.

The Dude says: Sooner or later you are going to have to face the fact that your a moron.

Sam Flynn says: Dad.

Kevin Flynn says: Sam.

Sam Flynn says: Long time.

Kevin Flynn says: You have no idea.

The Dude says: The fixes the cable?

Maude Lebowski says: Don't be fatuous Jerry.

Fred Wilson says: [as the "Petrox Explorer" comes in sight of Skull Island] ... Did you ever wonder how Hernando Cortez felt when he discovered the Lost Treasure of the Incas?

Jack Prescott says: That wasn't Cortez; it was Pizarro. And he died flat broke.

Jack Prescott says: Kong! Kong! Kong! Kong! you heard them chant that! He exists. You saw the wall, right? Now who the hell do you think they're planning to give that girl to?

Fred Wilson says: It's some nutty religion. A priest gets dressed up like an ape and gets laid.

Fred Wilson says: Jack, let me straighten you out on a couple of points. One, that wall is an ancient ruin. Two, this island is uninhabited. [Loud drumming begins, coming from the direction of the wall]

Jack Prescott says: And three, there's an uninhabited German beer hall down there with a mechanical band.

Jack Prescott says: There is a girl out there who might be running for her life from some gigantic turned-on ape.

The Dude says: Yeah,well, that's just, like, your opinion, man

The Dude says: Yeah,well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

The Dude says: I don't need your sympathy, I need my Johnson

The Dude says: I don't need your sympathy, I need my Johnson.

The Dude says: We fucked it up!

Walter Sobchak says: You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don't wanna know about it, believe me.

The Dude says: Yeah, but Walter...

Walter Sobchak says: Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 o'clock this afternoon... with nail polish. These fucking amateurs...

The Dude says: We dropped off the money.

The Big Lebowski says: *We*!?

The Dude says: *I*; the royal we.

The Dude says: The Dude abides.

Hunter says: [Starman and Jenny are looking at a dead deer strapped to the hood of a car] Did you cry when you saw Bambi?

Starman says: Define 'Bambi'?

Hunter says: Huh?

Jenny Hayden says: He doesn't understand, he's not from around here.
