'Jimmy Kimmel Live': Jeff Bridges Wants Grandkids to Call Him by 'Lebowski' Name (Video)

Jeff Bridges embraces "The Dude" -- a.k.a. Jeffrey Lebowski -- his character from the cult classic, "The Big Lebowski."

In fact, the actor identifies with the character so much that he told Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night he insists his grandkids call him "Dude-pa."

The only problem: His 2-year-old granddaughter Gracie can't quite pronounce the full thing, so she calls him "Doody." Not that Bridges is too offended by that. He's an eternal optimist.
