In regards to this news…about damn time! If you’re a longtime fan of The Dude and are Lushworthy at heart then I’m sure you’ve been waiting for the day when Jeff Bridges, the actor who played the White Russian-loving The Dude in The Big Lebowski, teamed up with Kahlua for a boozy collaboration. And if you didn’t know, Kahlua is one of the main ingredients featured in the classic White Russian cocktail.
It was announced this week (via press release) that Bridges has teamed up with Kahlua Productions to release “The White Russian” short film. The actor will reportedly narrate and star in the film, which will debut on September 9 at a private screening in Hollywood, California.
“The White Russian is one of the most popular classic cocktails and it’s seeing a massive revival right now, so to work with Kahlua on this project is great timing,” said Jeff Bridges. “As a short film entirely inspired by a simple classic cocktail, this story is creative, enigmatic and beautifully shot.”
As far as the film is concerned, it’s directed by Ivan Zacharias and is “an intriguing story about the unlikely meeting of two men from different worlds.” There’s no word yet on when the general public will be able to see “The White Russian,” but I’m hoping for some time in the very near future. And I’ll surely be ready with White Russian in hand a la The Dude.
