Yesterday Jeff Bridges proved that The Dude still abides as his Big Lebowski co-star John Goodman was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
Goodman, who I believe is under the same contract as Samuel L. Jackson to appear in every movie ever made, was clearly having a great time posing with his star and playing up to the cameras but it was Bridges who stole the show.
Bridges pulled out his best ratty cardigan got himself a White Russian and transformed back into The Dude one more time to deliver a moving speech about Goodman’s many incredible achievements while at the same time referencing Donny’s eulogy.
He’s a good actor, he’s a good man, John Goodman. He’s one of us, he loves the outdoors and acting.
As a showman, he has explored the stages from Los Angeles to New York — we’re talking Broadway here, man — he’s done some weird little movies, too. And he’s lived, like so many men in prior generations have lived their lives. He is a man of his times, a man of our times, and he has become a legend.
In accordance with what we think may be your final wishes, we have committed to these sidewalks in Hollywood — in the bosom of Hollywood that you love so well — a star. A star for you, a star because we love you so well … what time is it? Afternoon? Good afternoon, sweet prince.
Of course Jeff it’s worth saying that ‘that’s just like, your opinion, man’. I kid of course we love these two.
