academy award winning actor jeff bridges is the star of the show The oldbut before the show’s international debut, he revealed that he was originally hesitant to dip his toe in the middle.

In an interview with Variety Covering a spectrum of topics, Bridges revealed that he was familiar with the source material (a Thomas Perry novel) before he was offered the role. Turns out a friend of his sent him the book years ago but he didn’t read it. However, his wife does.

“And then they sent me the script and I was like, ‘Oh, this title sounds so familiar.’ My wife said, ‘Yeah, that was the book Tim sent you,’ and I read the script and said, ‘Oh, that’s pretty good.

He went back to the book and also called it a “turn of the page”. He was hooked and when he met with producers John Steinberg and Warren Littlefield he was even more intrigued. “Oh, this is something to get into.”

Bridges said that “I was originally resistant to doing television. My father, Lloyd Bridges, had done a number of TV shows, and I saw how he was a bit frustrated with how quickly the shows were filmed and how they couldn’t pay as much attention to detail etc.

But once he started watching modern shows, he realized “there was really no difference between doing the show and the movies.”

It didn’t hurt that Bridges considered the writing on the show to be top-notch.

“And as much as the story was interesting, it was actually the writing, you know, John Steinberg and Warren Littlefield, I was a fan of the different things that they had done. And the kind of cast they were talking about, it was a package that all started to come together.”
