!!Tropes
* CoolOldGuy: He does sci-fi movies, is not too far removed personality-wise from his [[TheBigLebowski iconic role]], and now has a music album coming out. And no one really has a bad thing to say about him, ever.
* TheDanza: His iconic character of [[TheBigLebowski The Dude]] is named Jeffrey, and the character [[AdamWesting is so (exaggeratedly) similar to himself]] that he has joked that he thought the Coen brothers spied on him and interviewed his friends when writing the part.
* LargeHam:
** "[[TheBigLebowski The Dude abides.]]"
** "[[Film/IronMan Tony Stark was able to build this IN A CAVE! With a box of scraps!]]"
** "[[Film/TronLegacy And unlike our selfish creator, who reserved the privilege of our world only for himself, I will make their world open and available to all of us. Yes!]] '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kb4Q6EsIgIU TO ALL OF US!!!!!]]'''"
** "[[Film/TheFisherKing I'm talking to the little people ! They say: Jack go to the nearest liqueur store find-ith the Jack of Daniels and ye may be shit faced !! DULANG DULANG!! YOU'RE OUT OF YOUR FUCKING MIND !!!]]".
* MeanCharacterNiceActor
* NewAgeRetroHippie: He's studied Buddhism, mediates on set and has a zen garden at his house. And is, you know, [[TheStoner laid-back in other ways]].
* VerbalTic: He really does say "man" a lot. When he entered [[TheBigLebowski The Little Lebowski]] store in lower Manhattan for the first time, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kENCU5cLBJU his reaction was "Cool shop, man!"]]
