“Nobody FUCKS with The JESUS” !
As “The JESUS” ROLLS AGAIN
aka JESUS QUINTANA
Yes The Jesus will be Rolling Again. But the Dude won’t. John Turturro is reprising his roll as Mexican-American bowling enthusiast Jesus Quintana in his new upcoming movie Going Places, a spin-off of the highly popular Cone Brothers film The Big Lebowski, starring Jeff Bridges as The Dude, John Goodman as Walter Sobchak, Julianne Moore as Maude Lebowski, David Huddleston as “The Big Lebowski,” Ben Gazzarra as pornographer Jackie Treehorn, Steve Buscemi as Donny, Sam Elliot as The Cowboy Stranger, Tara Reid as Bunny Lebowski, the late great Philip Seymour Hoffman as Brandt (The Big Lebowski’s Man Servant / Assistant) and of course John Turturro as “The Jesus” aka Jesus (pronounced HEY-soosh) Quintana.
This forthcoming movie (expected 2020) is not a sequel, but a spin-off of The Big Lebowski, starring Tarturro’s character Jesus Quintana (The JESUS). The movie, which was first titled The Jesus Rolls, features Tarturro as Jesus Quintana in ‘Going Places,’ a film about a trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude towards the past or future backfires time and again, even as they inadvertently perform good deeds. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser Jesus Quintana (The Jesus), their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law, from society and from the hairdresser, all while the bonds of their outsider family strengthen.
