Thompson on Hollywood

Jeff Bridges hosted Saturday Night Live (video below), yet another example that his public profile, post-Crazy Heart Oscar and with new releases TRON: Legacy and True Grit, is higher than it's ever been. (He's also been ardently pursuing a music career.) Remember, Bridges is infamous, Star Man and The Big Lebowski excepted, for being a beloved character actor who has never been a movie star. He never put butts in seats. But maybe that has changed. The box office performance of the Coens' True Grit (trailer below) will be a test of that--as will nabbing another Oscar nomination.

Here's Bridges' interview in Cowboys and Indians magazine.

    I admire and respect Jeff Bridges, but live acting & performing is not his strong suite. He looked completely awkward and uncomfortable hosting SNL. I was cringing and I felt completely sorry for him. Anne Hathaway is still the best SNL host this tv season. This lady has great comedic timing , and she is a wonderful mimic. Because Hathaway proved her genius hosting SNL, she received the co- hosting gig with James Franco.
