VIDEO: Jeff Bridges Plays a Rogue C.I.A. Agent in ‘The Old Man’ Official Trailer
John Lithgow and Alia Shawkat co-star on FX's upcoming spy thrillerJune 6, 2022
Jeff Bridges plays a rogue C.I.A. agent who’d been living off the grid for decades before an assassination attempt forces him back into action on “The Old Man,” an explosive spy thriller debuting next Thursday on FX.
Based on a bestselling Thomas Perry novel, the series follows Dan Chase (Bridges) as he’s flushed out of hiding and hunted down by his own government like he’s an enemy of the state. Despite his advanced age, Chase still has no problem picking up a gun and bringing the pain to his antagonists—especially after they threaten to involve his family.
“Anyone you send to me, I’m sending back in bags. Anyone you send to my kid, I’m sending them back in pieces,” the 2014 Stern Show veteran says in the official trailer (above).
Developed by Jonathan E. Steinberg and Robert Levine, “The Old Man” co-stars John Lithgow, Amy Brenneman, Alia Shawkat, and Gbenga Akinnagbe.
“The Old Man” premieres Thursday, June 16 on FX.
