Jeff Bridges has become THE Character Actor for the "Old Broken Partner/Mentor/Father Figure"

The Rules...

1. Must be bitter and fucked up.

2. Must be a fallen hero.
3. Must partner with a young, ignorant, head strong , but full of potential partner.
4. Must squint a lot and talk gravely.
5. Must be redeemed in the end. 
6. Drinks - preferably from a flask (this one is not consistent, but enough)

The Proof...

Tron: Legacy (2010)

True Grit (2010)

R.I.P.D (2013)
Seventh Son (2013)

Dork Note: Here is the synopsis of Jeff Bridges latest movie (pre-production) called The Giver -
In a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, a young boy is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the "real" world.
I luv Jeff Bridges so this is totally cool with me, but Hollywood sure knows how to run something into the ground!
