Jeff Bridges may be on the path to another Oscar. The trailer for the veteran actor’s latest flick True Grit sure doesn’t disappoint. The Joel and Ethan Coen-directed film is a remake of the 1969 John Wayne classic that earned Wayne his one and only Oscar.
This time around, Jeff plays the eye-patch wearing, rugged, aged and tough U.S. Marshal Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn.
The remake — which hits theaters Dec. 25 — also stars Matt Damon and young newcomer Hailee Steinfeld as the 14-year-old girl who hires Rooster to find the man who killed her father.
