Jeff Bridges - Jeff Bridges Signs On To R.i.p.d

Jeff Bridges has been confirmed for a role in 'R.I.P.D'.

The Oscar-winning actor will star alongside Ryan Reynolds in the supernatural comedy based on a comic about a group of dead law enforcers trying to keep other dead people from a life of crime.

Jeff will play the role of Roy Powell, a former gun slinger who has been dead for hundreds of years, while Ryan will play his partner Nick Cruz, a recently murdered policeman.

Zach Galifianakis was once attached to the role of Nick but dropped out because of scheduling problems.

Filming with begin on the movie - directed by Robert Schwentke - in September in Boston.

Jeff revealed earlier this year he likes to reward himself for his hard work in films by getting "trashed".

He said: "I have a cycle that is not particularly cool, but it's a cycle: trash myself to reward myself.

"When I've done a good job, I've worked my ass off in a movie and been very disciplined, then to reward myself I'll take that governor off and say, 'Go ahead and do what you want, man. You want to get drunk? You do whatever you want."
