That’s what Jeff Bridges looks like with a beard and a cowboy hat, you bet. His beard is a little whiter than it was in Crazy Heart, and it wasn’t white at all, of course, in The Big Lebowski so time moves on, etc. What this pic tells me primarily is that Bridges isn’t going to register all that strongly as Rooster Cogburn. He has only so many tricks up his sleeve, after all. He can only repeat well-worn schtick. But Hailee Steinfeld, you can tell, has some kind of snarly polecat, don’t-mess-with-me attitude.
