My favorite film of all time? The Big Lebowski. The film is endlessly quotable and it gets better every time I watch it. Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges happens to be a big fan of the film as well, who of course plays The Dude, aka Jeffrey Lebowski, in the film. This week will see the continuation of PBS’ American Masters series and the episode will focus on Bridges in a 90-minute documentary entitled Jeff Bridges: The Dude Abides. To promote the show, which will air tomorrow at 8 P.M. EST, PBS premiered a clip where Bridges visits a shop in New York called The Little Lebowski. Yea, man! Hit the jump for the full clip and make sure to record/watch the documentary about Bridges tomorrow.

If you aren’t a big Lebowski fan, no worries. The documentary will run the gamut of Bridges’ career to date, including interviews with Terry Gilliam, Robin Williams, John Goodman, Cybil Shephard, T-Bone Burnett, and many more. This is the 25th season of American Masters. Check your local listings to see when it airs for you.
