Are you sitting down? Jeff Bridges is finally getting some acting work, again. Phew. Now, he's in something called Seventh Son.

This time, instead of playing a grizzled old gunfighter, a grizzled old country singer, a grizzled old computer programmer, or a grizzled old Iron Man nemesis, or a grizzled old disembodied voice of every car commercial in existence...Bridges is gonna mix it all up. In a shocking change of type, he's gonna play a grizzled old wizard. Crazy, right? Yeah. We're still stunned.

The trailer looks pretty middling and dare-we-say(?) Willow-meets-a-giant-bucket-of-dragon-dook. Seventh Son, which won't be in front of audiences until early 2014, is based on the first of author Joseph Delaney's Wardstone Chronicles. He'll cast spells opposite a witch of some kind played by Julianne Moore, whose female form makes him uncomfortable. Vagina.

Despite our current lack of excitement, we'll give them some time to make the case...there's a lot of ins and outs and what-have-yous. A lot of strands in the old Duder's head. Y'know?
