Bridges performs on Conan

Posted by · 3:36 pm · January 16th, 2010

Jeff Bridges stopped by The Tonight Show yesterday to promote “Crazy Heart” and even stood up to belt out a little of “I Don’t Know,” one of the original tracks from the film.  Take a look (the performance is in part three, after the jump):

    I think Jeff is a tremendous actor and has tons of talent and i’ve said recently that i’m surprised that he hasn’t won more accolades and over the last 20 years he should’ve been up there with Pacino, De Niro and Nicholson in terms of a great. I’m not a big, big fan but he deserves praise for his body of work and he’s a nice guy too. That’s why he might get the best actor Oscar this year and i honestly believe the best
    contender he has should be Tom Hardy for Bronson. He gave everything and that shouldn’t be ignored so you can’t tell me Clooney trying to be Cary Grant or big lovie Firth were better, no way!

    Bridges V Hardy and if either win great!

    ^ It’s a shame that Tom Hardy gotten such little buzz.

    I hope Bridges wins the Oscar. And I think he will.

    “Try? What are you talkin’ bout, man?”

    You gotta love Jeff Bridges, he’s just being himself unlike most of everyone else in Hollywood. He gave a great speech last night too, the first of many, I hope. Nothing would please me more on Oscar night than to see him finally win.

    I still feel…somewhat disappointed that he’s going to win his LONG overdue Oscar for this film. I mean, what’s more Oscar-baiting than an alcholic country singer? Am I right, or just being a whiner right now and should just be happy for the man?

    LOL, okay, voland. I’ll just close my eyes on Oscar night and pretend he really won for Fearless.

    Er, his performance in “Crazy Heart” is astonishing, so I don’t see what the problem is.

    I don’t see a problem either. His performance in Fearless is one of his best and one of my favorites but this performance in Crazy Heart is right there with it, so it won’t be a ‘make up’ Oscar.

    I saw Crazy Heart several days ago and Bad is still with me. I’m counting the days until the CD comes out and I’m not even a big country fan, but I want part of the movie with me. I saw it out of my area so I can’t just pop in and see it again. Now I’ll be counting the days until the DVD comes out.

    I wouldn’t say Bridges is an underrated actor, I think everyone in Hollywood knows how wonderful he is, and they’d be right to finally give him an Oscar for this truly superb performance.

    Forget old lumbering Bridges in that deadbeat movie that nobody saw or cares about. Did anyone see true best actor of the year, Jeremy Renner, belt one out on Jimmy Fallon’s show this week?

    Fallon provoked him to sing a karaoke song, smirking like he thought Renner would fall flat on his face. Then Renner grabs the mic and opens up those pink lungs and lets out the most amazing song. Snap! Fallon was totally taken aback. I hope Rob Marshall was watching!

    Bridges is one of the few great actors who is Oscar-less and should have won by this point. The man has been snubbed far too many times. His performance in ‘Fearless’ is brilliant and should have won. Tom Hanks playing sick in ‘Philadelphia’ was Oscar-bait, but Bridges role was challenging and original.

    I have not seen ‘Crazy Heart’ but I hope he wins, even if it’s a “sorry we’re giving this to you 15 years too late and for a performance that reminds us of your best work…” just like they did with Al Pacino, Morgan Freeman, Robin Williams, Paul Newman, etc.
