Jeff Bridges says he's interested in starring in a sequel to The Big Lebowski.  In the film, Bridges plays The Dude, a role that has become a cult figure and made Bridges a very popular.

In a recent interview with Metro, Bridges admits he wouldn't be opposed to making a sequel. 

"Oh, absolutely. But I wouldn’t count on that," Bridges told the newspaper. "It doesn’t seem like something the Coen brothers would be interested in, but then again they’re always about surprising us so who knows, maybe they’ll surprise us again.
