Last week Jeff Bridgesteased the return of his character from The Big Lebowski, The Dude. Some folks likely got their hopes up that it was for a sequel, though all signs pointed to it being for some kind of Super Bowl commercial.
Unfortunately for those who got their hopes up, it is indeed for a commercial. Instead of waiting for this Sunday, the ad has been shared online early. But the good news is that this is all for a good cause. You can find more information and watch the video below.
Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges is teasing the return of one of his most popular characters.
The actor has shared a video indicating that his character from the 1998 Coen Brothers hit The Big Lebowski, The Dude, will be returning soon. The big question is, in what? Is there a surprise sequel on the way, or will it be something else?

Twenty years ago, the crazed minds of Joel and Ethan Coen brought Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski onto the big screen in The Big Lebowski and into the hearts of millions. The iconic comedy starring Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore, and John Turturro is returning to theaters for one more night only, tomorrow August 8, 2018, thanks to Universal Pictures, Fathom Events, and their TCM Big Screen Classics series.
Every year since 1989 the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry has selected twenty-five short films and full-length features to be recognized, in the words of the librarian of Congress James H. Billington, as “cultural, historical, or aesthetic cinematic treasures.” From Citizen Kane and Star Wars to Woodstock and This is Spinal Tap, each year’s list contains some of the most beloved and significant films ever made, and now the Dude and Ferris Bueller get to join their ranks.
Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1998 comic thriller The Big Lebowski, which has become a certified cult classic in the sixteen years since its theatrical, Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning World War II drama Saving Private Ryan, and John Hughes’ endlessly quotable high school comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off are among this year’s additions to the National Film Registry, bringing the total amount of films in the Registry to 650.
