Matthew McConaughey and Jeff Bridges on Their Most Iconic Characters

“Iconic characters, dude.”

Matthew McConaughey and Jeff Bridges appeared together to discuss their most iconic roles to date during the fifth season of Variety and PBS’ series “Actors on Actors.” Though both having an extensive roster of eclectic roles to choose from, the pair were quick to select a particular favorite from their filmography.

For McConaughey, his most memorable role is David Wooderson in the cult-classic “Dazed and Confused,” which was also his first prominent role in a feature film. He notes that his interactions with “Dazed” fans are among his favorites.

“I have some people come up to me and say the first line of a ‘Dazed’ line and I’ll say the second half back,” says McConaughey. “And that’s my favorite fan [interaction].”

“I love that, man,” replies Bridges, whose “The Big Lebowski” character remains close and dear to him. “Whether I was in it or not, [‘The Big Lebowski’] would probably be one of my favorite movies. Any kind of recognition from that movie — I never get tired.”

The interview will air during the fifth season of the Emmy Award-winning series on PBS SoCal KOCE, presented by The Venetian Las Vegas. The new season debuts on Jan. 3. Click here to watch the full interview.
