Favorite Actor Monday

Despite "K-Pax," this GQ cover, and the fact that he is a privileged child of a Hollywood actor, Jeff Bridges always classes up the joint. He picks not just good roles, but good films. He's an understated actor who doesn't need to go apeshit to prove he's doing a good job. He doesn't try to sell you his character. I always like watching him.

The Last Picture Show (Peter Bogdanovich, 1971)
Fat City (John Huston, 1972)
The Iceman Cometh (John Frankenheimer, 1973)
Rancho Deluxe (Frank Perry, 1975)
Stay Hungry (Bob Rafelson, 1976)
Cutter's Way (Ivan Passer, 1981)
Cold Feet (Robert Dornhelm, 1989)
The Fabulous Baker Boys (Steve Kloves, 1989)
The Fisher King (Terry Gilliam, 1991)
American Heart (Martin Bell, 1992)
The Big Lebowski (Joel & Ethan Coen, 1998)
Masked and Anonymous (Larry Charles, 2003)
Tideland (Terry Gilliam, 2005)
