The Dude is back as ‘The Old Man’

Jeff Bridges The Old Man

I’m late to the party on this one, but it’s great to see Jeff Bridges back in business after battling cancer and covid. He actually started acting in the TV political action series The Old Man while still fighting the deadly diseases.

The seven-part series premiered on the FX network on June 16, 2022, and will be back next summer for season 2.

Jeff Bridges, 73, stars as widowed former CIA officer Dan Chase living off the grid in Vermont with his two dogs. But there are goons out there who want to kill him and he is forced to go into hiding.

He rents a room from Zoe McDonald, played by Amy Brenneman, who becomes his partner on the run.

John Lithgow stars as FBI counter-intelligence director Harold Harper who hired a hit-man to kill Chase. All in all, a good yarn and you can’t get much better than Bridges, Lithgow and Brenneman.
