Jeff Bridges wants to make a second 'Big Lebowski' movie.

The 60-year-old actor - who is in the running to win the Best Actor Oscar for his role as Bad Blake in 'Crazy Heart' - admits he would relish a chance to get back together with the cast and crew.

He said: "Any chance to work with the Cohens, well actually I'm working with the Cohens in March. We're gonna do 'True Grit'. But any chance to do a 'Lebowski 2' would be great to do."

Jeff, who played the title role Jeffrey Lebowski - better known as The Dude - in the movie, gained a cult following the film's release in 1998.

Last year, John Turturro, who plays Jesus Quintana in the movie, admitted plans were afoot for a sequel.

He said: "'The Big Lebowski' was a great movie. We hope to make a sequel. I can't talk about it, but it comes down to Jesus in the jumpsuit."
