Jeff Bridges visits Little Lebowski store, reaffirms Dude status in new video clip

By Jen Chaney

Jeff Bridges -- who further cemented his place of affection in Americans' hearts by singing "Silver Bells" with Cookie Monster on "Saturday Night Live" (see video below) -- is the subject of a new American Masters documentary that's scheduled to run next month on PBS.

Undoubtedly sensing a spike on the Bridges-in-the-zeitgeist meter, PBS has released a preview clip of the documentary. It features the "Tron: Legacy" star visiting New York's Little Lebowski store, a shop full of "The Dude is My Boyfriend" T-shirts that's (obviously) inspired by Bridges's most beloved White Russian-sipping character, the Dude from "The Big Lebowski."

Watch Bridges explore the place of Dude-ly commerce ("Cool shop, man"), explain his initial reluctance to appear in "The Big Lebowski" (he didn't want to saddle his daughters with a reputation as a "pothead father") and express his happiness about agreeing to take the role ("Boy am I glad I went to that party, man").

The documentary -- appropriately titled "Jeff Bridges: The Dude Abides" -- debuts Jan. 12 on PBS. Watch the clip, then check out Bridges's SNL opener -- complete with more Dude references and the Cookie Monster cameo -- after the jump.

Watch the full episode. See more American Masters.

A cameo won't do. Cookie Monster needs to host SNL.
