I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Jeff Bridges

Actor Jeff Bridges. It's been a heck of a year for Jeff Bridges. On the coat tails of winning an Academy Award for his performance in the 2009 film Crazy Horse, Bridges wowed us with two late-2010 hits: TRON: Legacy and True Grit. But you probably love him already for his performances over the years in films such as TRON, The Big Lebowski, and Door in the Floor. Bridges, much like the Coen Brothers, alternates from serious to comedic so quickly and impressively that he seems almost like a normal human being, only amplified much louder than the rest of us. At 61, it doesn't look like Bridges has any intention of slowing down. As a matter of fact, sometimes it seems like he's just getting started.
