is giving fans of The Big Lebowski
something to drink to today, starring in a short film honoring a favorite cocktail – the White Russian
"As a short film entirely inspired by a simple classic cocktail, this story is creative, enigmatic and beautifully shot," the Academy Award winner told PEOPLE about the project.
The White Russian
, directed by Ivan Zacharias and produced by Kahlua, is a "cult movie-inspired story about the unlikely meeting of two men from different worlds, as told by a man reminiscing about his past adventures."
Bridges, 64, memorably played Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski in the Coen Brothers' 1998 cult favorite The Big Lebowski
– and if there's one thing the Dude knows, besides bowling, Persian rugs and the occasional acid flashback, it's how to mix a perfect Caucasian.
