Happy Birthday Jeff Bridges: 'The Big Lebowski' Star Turns 62

Happy Birthday, Jeff Bridges!

The Dude turns 62 on December 4 and we wanted to take a moment to celebrate his past achievements and his most memorable roles.

This has been a big year for the star. He released his soulful self-titled album, and we got to go back in time with a cast reunion of the cult classic "The Big Lebowski." Next, he'll be sporting a pair of suspenders in the cop flick "RIPD," alongside Ryan Reynolds.

Check out some of Bridges' best roles below. Just to say, like, happy birthday, man!
