Jeff Bridges revives ‘The Dude’ to honor his Big Lebowski co-star John Goodman


(applause) – Hello. (grunting) What? (laughing) This here. This. – [Woman] Oh! – Dude! (cheering) Wow. (applause) We are not worthy. (laughing) (applause) – Walter. Um, John, is… Well he’s a good actor, he’s a good man, John Goodman, yeah. (cheering) He’s one of us. He loves the outdoors and acting. As a showman, he has explored the
stages from Los Angeles to New York. (laughing) We’re talking Broadway here, man. (laughing) He’s done some weird little movies, too. (laughing) And, he’s lived like
so many men (laughing) in prior generations
have lived their lives. He is a man of his times. He is a man of our times, and he has become a legend. (cheering) In your wisdom, Lord, you
have lived through John, as you have through so many other bright, flowering,
young actors before him. I’m talking about men like Clark Gable. (cheering) Gabby Hayes. (laughing) Roy Rogers, to keep in
the whole western thing. Groucho Marks, Jimmy Cagney,
we could go on and on, but you get the idea. These men have lived for what they loved, and so have you, Walter. You have lived for acting,
that you have loved so well, ans so, Walter Sobchak, John Goodman… In accordance with what we think may be your final wishes, (laughing) we have committed to these sidewalks in Hollywood, in the bosom of Hollywood
that you love so well, a star. (laughing) A star for you, a star because we love you so well. What time is it? (laughing) – Late enough. – Afternoon?
– Yeah. – Good afternoon, my sweet prince. (applause) – Get up. (cheers and applause) [SUBSCRIBE TO VARIETY]

  1. It's such a shame that big John is a satanist. Can't watch the vile evil satanic prat anymore 😖

  2. This is another proof that the big name actors are only empty shiny shells that are big zeros without the souls that the real creator, the director, breathe in to them.

  3. King Ralph, Long live the King! Congrats Mr Goodman. Anyone who can deal with Ms Rosey Barr for that many years deserves a Gold Star! Hell, a Platinum Planet would be more in line.

  4. Anyone else see what they did at 7 seconds? Pause it at 7 seconds. And if you don't understand I'm not telling ya

  5. John Goodman is a St Louis native. He used to often hang out at Redbird Bowling lanes south side Stl. I used to chat with him a lot back in those days.

  6. Luckily the Supreme Court roundly rejected prior restraint and allowed this speech to happen. Buddies of his, dying face down in the muck so they can enjoy this star dedication.
