The Dude

“I bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback.” Jeff Bridges' The Dude is one of the most iconic and beloved characters of the past twenty years. The bathrobe-wearing, White Russian-drinking, half-baked Eagles-hating American hero is a favorite to many—including, apparently, Michael Fassbender.

Encyclopedia Hearsay | David Copperfield

The Encyclopedia Hearsay was founded on four principles: misinformation, rumours, half-remembered conversations, and outright lies. Anyone can contribute, so long as articles are written with no research whatsoever.

But, he was kind enough to discuss his perspective on it and his career, as well as the time he threw up while broadcasting on a popular cable network, with ION writer Kellen Powell.
