The Dude Abides By New Ridley & Tony Scott-Produced Short (Video)

The life story of publicist Jeff Dowd, the inspiration for the Coen Bros. “Big Lebowski,” is showcased in USA Characters Welcome video

In terms of the USA Network's ethereal short-film-based Character Project, you could say, as Sam Elliott might, that Jeff Dowd (pictured) "fits right in there."

Certainly, filmmakers Ridley and Tony Scott — who showcased the "Big Lebowski" inspiration in a new bio short  — think so, too.

Due to embedding issues, we're unable to publish the video on TheWrap, so view the short here.
