Jeff Bridges is being treated after a recent fight against cancer and a diagnosis of COVID-19. ET’s Kevin Frazier spoke with Bridges at the premiere of his new FX series, The Old Man. There he became open about the movie and shared the latest information about his health.
“When it comes to cancer, yes, remission, and COVID, you know, it made my cancer look like nothing, that COVID,” he shared. “I gave chemotherapy for cancer, and it stripped my entire immune system, so I got COVID on it, and it wiped me out.”
It took three years for an “old man” to be created by chemotherapy and a pandemic. The series is based on Tomas Sperry’s novel and was originally planned to debut in FX on Hulu in 2021.
Bridges also said that the “old man” who worked long and hard to talk about the CIA operatives who were forced to learn that the only way to secure his future was to secure his future. The past I couldn’t help but blow away the cast and crew.
“It’s a great group, starting with writers John Steinberg and Lauren Littlefield, not just the cast. The whole team,” Bridges said of the group, including the legendary John Lithgow.
Bridges also has his co-stars Bill Heck (playing his younger version at the show) and Amy Brenneman (his character Dan Chase, an unprotected landlord who rents a room while away from the grid. I commented on the performance by (playing).
“He did a great job,” Bridges said. “It’s always challenging. There’s flashbacks and so on, but it’s pretty good because it’s like reminding me of myself.”
