The Many Faces Of Jeff Bridges

This week, the film adaptation of young-adult novel The Giver appears in cinemas, and the two elder people in it are played by Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep. They've both had plenty of awesome moments in their careers and could easily feature in the quiz, so I asked my colleagues for opinions. In the end we settled on Jeff. Heh.

Normally I'd now explain why Jeff Bridges is cool, but with him it's not really necessary, is it?

So once again I'm going to use a gallery of 11 close-ups of one of my favorite thespians to make a quiz (La Streep will surely get her turn at some later date). Click through the images and guess which 11 movies they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDb.

And I'll post the answers next Thursday (earlier if someone has all eleven of them right).

And here we have Jeff in The Giver, as ehm... "The Giver".

This picture isn't part of the quiz yet (it is a poster with the title already on it, so no points there) but the others are. Browse through them all, and see how many you recognize!

Dead Jeff! Awesome.

Tideland was pretty easy because it was relatively recent, and the picture had the film's child lead. If you threw in Hearts of the West, Winter Kills, or 8 Million Ways to Die, now that would have been a curve and a half.

Ard VijnAugust 16, 2014 6:29 AM

It would have been pretty easy if people had actually seen the film; not many have!

billydakingAugust 16, 2014 3:28 PM

I haven't seen it yet. That's why having Jodelle Ferland in the picture made it easy...whatever publicity and notice that film got centered on her.
