Jeff Bridges: The Dude Abibes

AMERICAN MASTERS gives viewers an unexpected window into the life of actor Jeff Bridges. Monday at 10 p.m. on PBS-HD 6.

This 2010 Oscar-winning best actor embodies traits far beyond brilliance as an actor. Jeff Bridges is an exceptional musician, a photographer, an occasional vintner and a storyteller. He hails from an illustrious Hollywood family, working as a child with his father Lloyd and brother Beau on television’s “Sea Hunt.”

Bridges endures with vigor and grace. His own decades-long marriage and daughters remain the center of his world. His casual, easy-going air have endeared him to audiences for almost 40 years, starting with The Last Picture Show in 1971, reinforced in Starman in 1984 and the cult classic The Big Lebowski in 1998. After the life-changing role of Bad Blake in Crazy Heart in 2009, he returns to the screen with Tron Legacy and as Rooster Cogburn in the remake of True Grit, directed by the Coen Brothers.
