‘The Jesus Rolls ,’ a sort-of sequel to ‘The Big Lebowski ,’ takes us on a road trip to nowhere | The Star.
The trailer did not include an appearance by Jeff Bridges’ character Jeff “The Dude ” Lebowski from the original 1998 movie, in which Turturro’s character taunted Lebowski and his bowling team at a bowling alley and referred to himself as “The Jesus .”
John Turturro was born in Brooklyn , New York, the son of Katherine Florence (Incerella) and Nicholas Turturro. His mother was born in the U.S., to Italian parents with roots in Sicily, and was an amateur jazz singer, who had worked in a naval yard during World War II.
Filming locations included New York City and Los Angeles. It was also announced the film would be a remake of the 1974 French film Going Places directed by Bertrand Blier, which was itself based on his own novel Les valseuses.

But this new film, The Jesus Rolls , turns out to be as much a Lebowski sequel as those Stella Artois ads starring Jeff Bridges as the Dude. It’s an incidental spinoff, and a middling one at that. Luckily, Turturro sidesteps most of the original film’s truly poisonous misogyny, though not all of it.
