We hope so. While we’re at it, let’s bring back more Coen brothers creations.
Per an article in The Hollywood Reporter, actor John Turturro is seeking the rights to reprise his role as Jesus Quintana from The Big Lebowski in a new film. Jesus, as you’ll likely remember, was a flamboyant bowler and a pederast. (“Eight year olds dude.”)
“If I can get the permission I need, I’d like to return to that role,” Turturro reportedly told a panel at last weekend’s Taormina Film Festival in Sicily.
It’s not the first time Turturro has said he’d like to resurrect the character. But his latest remarks come on the heels of the wildly successful first season of the TV adaptation of Fargo – another Joel and Ethan Coen production – which got us thinking: What other characters from Coen brothers movies deserve a spinoff?
