"The Dude" and the Dance
Jeff Dowd ("The Dude") busted a move at the Cinetic party earlier this week at Sundance. Jeff is known as the person who inspired the Coens' "Dude" in "The Big Lebowski." This year, he notched up his fame by getting punched by an irate Variety reporter at a diner when Dude wouldn't leave him alone about "Dirt," a movie he's representing. (Dowd is also a producers rep). We wrote about it of course, then it got picked up by Defamer, and all the blogs went wild over it, and by afternoon, The Los Angeles Times even picked up the story. Moral of the story? Get into a fight with the right people and you too will make the big time!
[Earlier in this post iW mistakenly said that a review of "Dirt" had been posted which it hadn't, we regret the error.]
