There will be three Jeff Bridges in movie theaters this Christmas—a one-eyed, grizzly Bridges in the Coen Bros.’ version of True Grit, and both a gray and distinguished Bridges and a creepy CGI bobblehead Bridges in Tron: Legacy—and now there will be one on television too, as Bridges has just been announced as the host of Saturday Night Live on Dec. 18. It’s the first time Bridges has been on the show since February of 1983, when he shared hosting duties with his brother Beau. In a related story, Beau Bridges has announced that come Dec. 18, he will finally be making some real headway on that wall-sized crossword puzzle he got from SkyMall. Nah, we kid Beau Bridges. He’s a good sport.
