John Turturro Wants to Reprise 'Lebowski' Character, the Jesus


Nobody f**ks with the Jesus. John Turturro was speaking at a master class at this year's Toarmina Film Festival when he expressed interest in reprising one of his more well-known roles, Jesus, from the Coen Brothers' cult classic 'The Big Lebowski.'

Jesus was only in a couple of scenes in the movie but still he is one of the more memorable characters from the film. We were introduced to The Jesus with a rendition of 'Hotel California' by the Gipsy Kings and the last we see from Walter's bowling rival is when he goes off on an expletive-filled rant regarding a rescheduling of a League match because Walter DOESN'T ROLL ON SHABBOS! 

Turturro said that he is currently trying to gain the proper legal clearance to reprise the role.
