Before They Were Stars: 15-Year Old Jeff Bridges on “The Loner”

Jeff Bridges has been acting ever since he was a kid and his earliest acting appearances were usually guest spots on TV series which starred his father, the legendary Lloyd Bridges. The Loner was a 1965 Western TV series starring Lloyd Bridges which only aired on CBS for one season, but it gave 15-year old Jeff an opportunity to guest star on an episode as a boy who tries to break his father out of Lloyd’s custody. Young Jeff makes his first appearance at the 2:10 mark of this clip, and it’s quite hilarious to see him holding a rifle on his real-life father, only for Lloyd to turn around and sock his son on the jaw.
