is a three-time Academy Award nominee, and an actor who has the
rare ability to star in both leading man and character roles.
His first Academy Award nomination was for Peter Bogdanovich's
The Last Picture Show, followed by ones for Michael Cimino's
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot and John Carpenter's Starman
(which also earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination).
For his performance in Martin Bell's American Heart, he
received a 1993 Independent Spirit Award. With his production
company Asis Productions, Bridges produced American Heart,
as well as the 1996 Showtime telefilm Hidden in America.
The latter, which starred his brother Beau Bridges, received a
Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Made-For-Television/Cable
Film and a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Beau Bridges.
Bridges' extensive film credits include Terry Gilliam's The
Fisher King (which brought him another Golden Globe nomination),
with Robin Williams and Mercedes Ruehl; Steve Kloves' acclaimed
The Fabulous Baker Boys, with Beau Bridges and Michelle
Pfeiffer; Richard Marquand's hit Jagged Edge, opposite
Glenn Close; Francis Ford Coppola's Tucker: The Man and His
Dream; Peter Weir's Fearless; Stephen Hopkins' Blown
Away, with his father Lloyd Bridges and Tommy Lee Jones; and
Joel and Ethan Coen's The Big Lebowski (as The Dude).
He has also been seen in The Mirror Has Two Faces, White Squall,
Wild Bill, The Vanishing, Texasville (reunited with Peter
Bogdanovich to reprise his role from The Last Picture Show),
See You in the Morning, Nadine, The Morning After, 8 Million
Ways to Die, Against All Odds, Tron, Cutter's Way, Winter Kills,
Stay Hungry, Rancho Deluxe, Fat City, and Bad Company.
Bridges most recently starred in Mark Pellington's Arlington
Road, with Tim Robbins, Hope Davis, and Joan Cusack; and will
soon be seen starring in Matthew Warchus' film of Sam Shepard's
Simpatico, with Nick Nolte, Albert Finney, and - as in
The Muse - Sharon Stone.
In 1988, Bridges became the youngest actor to be honored by London's
National Film Theatre, with a three-week, 18-film tribute. In
1990, he was named Male Star of the Year by the National Association
of Theatre Owners (NATO).
Bridges is also an accomplished photographer, noted for his photographs
taken on the sets of film projects.
