First Photos Of Jeff Bridges In True Grit Appear Online
When it was first announced that Jeff Bridges would be playing the role of Rooster Cogburn in the Coen brothers' remake of True Grit, it perplexed many people. After all, they had just cast The Dude to play the role that won his only Oscar. But if you were thinking that the Coens would just try and dress Bridges like The Duke, prepare to be surprised.
Joe M. O'Connell has posted five images of Bridges in costume on set, and between the goatee, the bowler hat and the three piece suit, is is evident that Joel and Ethan are going for a different approach. The images also give us our first look at 13-year old Hailey Steinfeld, who will play Mattie Ross in the film. Even if you are upset by the lack of tan coats, handkerchiefs and cowboy hats, at least take solace in the fact that he is donning the character's signature eye-patch.
Check out the images below or see them full size over at Joe M. O'Connell's website. Fill your hands, you son of a bitch!
