Remember a few months ago when Tara Reid boasted that she was getting ready to work on a “Big Lebowski” sequel? We all laughed, naturally, and dismissed it as the ravings of, well, Tara Reid.
Turns out she was telling the truth. And Monday, the trailer for “The Big Lebowski 2” — starring Tara Reid, Tara Reid, Tara Reid, Tara Reid and Tara Reid — debuted at Funny or Die. (NSFW Warning: Some strong language here, so either use headphones or watch at home.)
But wait. This is actually some fine work. Is there hope for Tara’s career? Here she is totally making fun of herself and doing a bang-up job of playing not only The Dude, but Walter (originally played by John goodman), Donny Kerabatsos (Steve Buscemi) and — our favorite send-up — Jesus Quintana (John Turturro). Not all actresses would consent to wearing fat suits and facial hair.
So, producers, if you’re watching — give Tara a chance. She’s versatile and, it appears, is willing to do just about anything.
