To be clear, it wasn’t Lebowski Appreciation Night at Dodger Stadium on Saturday when LA played the Cubs. There were no white Russians, and there were no nihilists. Well, if there were nihilists, they weren’t drawing attention to themselves.

Nope, Jeff Bridges threw out the honorary first pitch of the game to promote his upcoming film The Giver, but we all really know that he’s transformed into The Dude. (El Dudarino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.)

He went out with shaggy hair, a giant beard, and a baseball glove…on his head. Of course, he threw the opening pitch about six feet high, but that’s just because opening pitches are just a ploy by MLB to embarrass celebrities. See also: 50 Cent.

We’ve all known that Jeff Bridges is awesome for a long time and now that the Academy has caught on, he’s gained enough cache to get his dream project off the ground. That dream project is the Newberry Medal-winning¬† The Giver by Lois Lowry. The story is set in a dystopian world where chocolate milk has been banned. Just kidding, but yeah, that would be pretty tough. In the novel’s dystopia rather, society has done away with memories and emotion while giving the responsibility of remembering the past to one person — The Receiver. Bridges will play the Receiver tasked with training a young successor to his job.

Bridges doesn’t have a studio or director attached yet but with a script by House of Sand and Fog‘s Vadim Perelman and his career heat, it’s unlikely he’ll have to look too long. Also, Bridges’ character is required to have an awesome beard. Who wouldn’t sign on to see that? (Variety)
