To her credit, The Big Lebowski would've been nothing without her, so why wouldn't she be invited to star in the sequel? Right? (Sense the sarcasm, peeps!)
Following a recent benefit show at the Comedy Store in L.A., Tara Reid was approached by paparazzi and was asked what projects she's working on right now. To everyone's surprise, she spewed off a pretty hefty list of flicks. She told sources she has two movies coming out this year, including one she produced with her brother, and that she's gearing up to star in two more films: American Pie 4 and The Big Lebowski 2.
That last one really caught everyone's attention and soon, the Internet was flooded with chatter about the flick finally making it to the big screen for a second time. But do you know who was most surprised by the news? Joel and Ethan Coen. You know, the guys who wrote and directed the first one.
When reached for comment, Ethan insisted he and his brother had no plans for a sequel, but was pleased to hear Tara did. He told sources:
"I'm glad she's working on it…we'll watch it when it comes out."
Ha! So would we! But alas, Tara isn't that ambitious. Her rep clarified the situation this morning with this statement on his client's behalf:
"She heard Jeff Bridges say that he wanted to make Big Lebowski 2 and have all the original cast members in it. So she may have misspoke, thinking that included her based on what Jeff said."
Ah, its okay Tara. She just got a bunch of crazed and devoted fans really excited for no reason. Don't sweat it.
