The Dude Abides

I was watching a special on Vh1 last night for the movie K-Pax, starring Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges and some blonde with a big forehead. They prattled on about the film and what a genius Spacey is for being able to act like a wierd ailen by eating fruit all wrong and making "birdlike" jerky motions with his head.

Whether for authenticiy or because there was nothing much more to say about the movie, they asked the cast what space alien from movies past they would like to be. Spacey said he'd like to be My Favorite Martian (and told a quippy little anecdote about how he wanted to put antennae on his head during a shoot just to make Jeff laugh because he loves to make Jeff laugh but he never did put the antennae on), Bridges said he'd want to be the robot from The Day The Earth Stood Still. The girl looked at the interviewer with feigned exaspiration and said "I'd want to be the Dude. Starman, of course. Anything Dude has been."

It fills be with abounding pride and satisfaction to learn that on the set, Jeff Bridges' castmates called him "Dude".
