In the past year or so I've become quite fond of Jeff Bridges as an actor. I think it started with the movie Crazy Heart (for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role as "Bad Blake"). I loved that movie; see it if you haven't. Although he is probably best known for his role as "The Dude" in The Big Lebowski - a movie I've watched a few times and tried to love, but ultimately did not.
Long story short, I bought tickets today to see him perform songs from Crazy Heart with his band in a concert this summer. I've been a fan of country music (believe it or not) since high school, so I am really excited to see him perform!
