Tara Reid is Mistaken About ‘Big Lebowski 2’
Last week, Tara Reid announced in an interview that she would be reviving her role as Bunny Lebowski in a forthcoming Big Lebowski sequel. This news came as a surprise to everyone, including, apparently, the Coen brothers themselves, who have no intention of making said sequel. I’m glad she’s working on it,” Ethan Coen joked. “We’ll watch it when it comes out.”
Apparently Reid had heard Jeff Bridges mention the possibility in an interview, and got confused. Still, I can see the appeal for her. Reid’s career has swan-dived since the Big L. In fact, Lebowski is probably the only legitimately good fim she’s ever been in (I caught half of the original American Pie on TV the other day, and it didn’t particularly hold up.) Since then she’s been involved in a series of failures, including the infamous failed boob job that made her the laughing stock of the nip-slip set, and prompted both a corrective boob job, and the most photo-shopped Playboy spread since they airbrushed out Latoya Jackson’s penis.
Even five years ago I would have said that instead of a full-on Lebowski reunion, Reid should simply revive her character Bunny for a XXX series in which she finally makes good on her original proposition to Jeff Bridges. But sadly, even the time for that has passed.
