Jeff Bridges shared that “one of the few films” he will stop and watch when it’s airing on television happens to be one of his most famous movies, “The Big Lebowski.”

During the 72-year-old actor’s interview with Fox News Digital, Bridges discussed the initial reactions to the film when it was released in 1998 and how it’s become a cult classic over time.

“When you get a great story, and you get a great director and a great cinematographer, the acting is decent, it all kind of comes together,” said Bridges. “That’s one of the few films that I see on TV I say, I’ll just watch a couple of scenes, and then I end up watching the whole damn thing.”

The actor is perhaps best known for his role in the movie as “The Dude.”

At one point, Bridges also talked about his hit FX show “The Old Man” and said he was initially hesitant to participate.

“I was concerned about doing some TV because there was sort of a stigma to it,” “The Contender” explained. “Back in the early days of my career, my father, Lloyd Bridges, had done many, many series. And I saw how hard he worked at bringing the quality to it and that the quality was often compromised because it was much faster schedule.”

“When I saw these high quality shows on TV now I said, ‘hey, I’ve got to, you know, experiment with this and see what that’s like,’ and I found that it’s no different than making a movie,” he added.

According to a description on IMDb on the new series, Bridges plays “a former CIA officer who’s living off the grid” and “finds himself on the run from people who want to kill him.”

“The Old Man” has an all-star cast that plays alongside Bridges, such as John Lithgow, among many others.

The series debuted in June, and a second season is in the works.
