If you thought Jeff Bridges was too old for this shit, then he’s not. In The Old Man, the actor, a covid survivor and cancer survivor, played a CIA veteran with Alzheimer’s who is targeted by hitmen for some old case in North Africa.
And he not only removed them, but also went in search of customers to close old questions. This is the beginning of the series, which will launch on FX and Hulu in a month.
The show, which was directed by Fargo producer Warren Littlefield and Black Sails writers Robert Levin and Jonathan Steinberg, will debut on June 16. It received 7 episodes, and the 71-year-old Bridges was accompanied by John Lithgow (Rock Climber) and Amy Brenneman (The Leftovers). Samuel L. Jackson was originally considered for the lead role.
