The Dude Gets Punched


I found this today over at David Hudon’s IFC Daily. Perhaps the best “gossip” out of Sundance.

No film blog with an eye on Sundance, even one as many meta-steps away from the festival itself as this one, can get away without mentioning Wednesday morning’s Main Event: a Variety critic punched the Dude! Not just any dude, but the Dude, producer’s rep Jeff Dowd, the widely acknowledged inspiration for Jeff Bridges‘s character in “The Big Lebowski.” Anne Thompson has pretty much all the detail the scuffle warrants, but just for kicks – seriously, just for kicks: let’s not actually open the movies-into-violence can of worms – we might entertain the idea that John Anderson was a tad juiced up by the film he’d seen the day before.
