Jeff Bridges is begging movie makers THE Coen Brothers to let him reprise his role as THE DUDE in a sequel to comedy hit The Big Lebowski.

The actor won cult status playing pothead JEFFERY LEBOWSKI in JOEL and Ethan Coen's cult comedy - which also starred Coen regulars John Goodman and Steve Buscemi.

But he concedes his pleas for a second film are so far falling on deaf ears, saying, "That's something you'd have to bring up with the Coen brothers, but I'd love to do that. The Dude gets Julianne Moore's character pregnant at the end, so I suppose you could have THE LITTLE LEBOWSKI."
