The Dude Will Not Abide in the US Senate

That was quick.

Some Montana-based Jeff Bridges fans recently launched a petition to get the Big Lebowski star to run for the U.S. Senate. But Bridges doesn’t think he’s the man for the job—or at least, his wife doesn’t think he is.

“I look down and I see this thing, ‘Jeff Bridges for Senate,’ and I say, ‘What?’” Bridges told Howard Stern on Monday. “Evidently, there’s a group of people that have called in and want me to run for senator of Montana, like 1,000 people, and so I say, ‘Sue?’ And she looks at me and goes, ‘Don’t even think about it.’”

Heh. The ads could’ve been fun.

Bridges stars in The Giver, which I’m hearing interesting things about, coming out this weekend.
