The first photo of pederast and ace bowler Jesus Quintana has officially surfaced since news broke that the character played by John Turturro in the Coen brothers’ “The Big Lebowski” was finally getting his own spinoff movie, “Going Places.” Birth.death.movies broke the news earlier this month that the film was already a few weeks into production, and on Friday, actress Susan Sarandon posted an Instagram of Turturro reprising the role.
Sarandon co-stars in the film alongside Bobby Cannavale and Audrey Tautou. Cannavale plays a thief named Petey who is competing with Quintana for the affection of a woman (Tautou). Sarandon plays a criminal who just got out of prison after serving a long sentence. The dramatic comedy that was initially going to be titled “100 Minutes with Jesus” is inspired by Bertrand Blier’s 1974 film “Les Valseuses.” Shooting is taking place in New York, and the Coen brothers are not involved in any way with the production.
Turturro is currently starring as attorney John Stone in the hit HBO show “The Night Of,” the eighth and final episode of which airs on Sunday, August 28 at 9pm.
While it’s hard to tell from the black and white photo below what exactly Turturro looks like playing Quintana nearly two decades after “The Big Lebowski,” it’s likely still true that nobody f*cks with the Jesus.
