Jeff Bridges is one of the most reliably stars in the business today, he has had 6 Oscar Nomination and one win to his name. he has 84 credits to his name according to the IMDB over his career which has spanned over 50 years. Today we are going to look at our favourite 5 performance from the legend of the business.jeff

My picks are of films I have seen, so if something you think was better didn’t make the list, it most likely is because I haven’t seen it yet.

5. Kevin Flynn – Tron/Tron Legacy (1982/2010)kevin

Playing the same aged character in both films, as well as an older self in second one. With completely different technology to help the films. Both films are visually stunning for the time of their releases and this could easily be one of the most iconic sci-fi roles in film history.

4. The Dude – The Big Lebowski (1998)the dude

“The Dude” Lebowski, mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it. Jeff creates on of the laziest characters we love in this film.

3. Dr. Mark Powell – K-Pax (2001)kpax

This is one of my personal favourite films of all time, Mark is the psychologist who has to figure out the story behind a mystery man who has come to his institute who claims he is from space. The interaction between Bridges and Spacey are absolutely brilliant and the film keeps you wondering about the truth even after seeing it.

2. Starman – Starman (1984)jeff

In this one Jeff is the alien who crash lands on Earth and takes the form of a widows dead husband, the two go on a road trip giving her a final good bye and him a chance to get home. This was such a good performance it was one of his Oscar nomination.

1. Rooster Cogburn – True Grit (2010)rooster

Rooster helps a stubborn young girl track down the men who murdered her father. It what is a brilliant performance where the character is serious and crazy in ever motion this had to be picked as my favourite role.


  1. I’m with Matt on this one! Bridges has delivered some solid work over the years but everything pales in comparison to The Big Lebowski. He is absolutely superb in that movie. So good, I’d have given him an Oscar for it.

    • i guess i like to be different, i always like to pick something others won’t. i still think The Dude was brilliant performance could be his best but its not my favourite

    • I have only seen that one once, and by the time i saw it everyone said how great it was and it didn’t disappoint. K-pax and starman i knew nothing about and just blew me away with the performance and film, i have lost count how many times i have seen k-pax now
