Don’t make The Dude angry. You won’t like The Dude when he’s angry.
Jeff Bridges Will Play Action Hero in Official Trailer for FX’s Old man, premieres Thursday, June 16 at 10/9c. In the trailer – which you can watch above – Bridges plays Dan Chase, a former CIA agent who is happily living out of the box with his two dogs when ambushed by a trained assassin. He survived the ambush, but it forced him to flee – and he carried a lot of guns with him.
Dan hides in Morocco, where FBI official Harold Harper (played by John Lithgow) manages to incapacitate him in order to keep 30 years of buried secret. But Dan took down the attackers, John Wick– Style, with guns and hand-to-hand combat. “If you send me more, I will send them back in the bag,” he told Harold, before warning: “Anything you send to my kids, I will send them back in pieces.”
“There is no limit to the damage he will do or the things he will destroy,” declares Harold as we see Dan kick his ass through several international languages. Plus, Amy Brenneman appears as a woman who has feelings for Dan: “It’s important to me whether you make it to life or not.” As Dan fights to survive, “the former agent learns that to secure his future, he must now reconcile his past,” according to the official description.
Old man based on the best-selling novel by Thomas Perry; Jonathan E. Steinberg and Robert Levine (Black Sail) act as writer and creator.
