What a busy month for Jeff Bridge’s. First, The Dude is bringing two highly anticipated flicks to the big screen – Tron: Legacy (which will feature Bridges’ digitally restored youth), and True Grit – at least one is considered a major Oscar contender, and the other is penned by LOST super scribes Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, I’m just saying. Next, Bridges will be hosting – for the first time – Saturday Night Live. It’s hard to imagine the not ready for prime time players have managed to keep Bridge’s away from the monologue all this time. As someone who doesn’t really watch SNL much anymore let me just say this is something I’ll be tuning in for. Given the timing, it would be hard to imagine that this SNL would be without any Tron or Rooster Cogburn themed skits. Here’s a few of the promos Bridge’s has cut – yup, Tron and Coen check complete.
This afternoon we have the first promo for this weekend’s SNL with Jeff Bridges and the all-star musical pairing of Eminem and Lil Wayne! Jeff’s first solo turn hosting the show is coming to you live this Saturday the 18th at 11:30 pm/10:30c.
