Jeff Bridges planning a duet with Elton John

Veteran actor Jeff Bridges has taken on a new role as a singer, and he wants to sing with one of the most legendary pop artists of all time on his upcoming album!

The 61-year-old, who won an oscar for his portrayal of a country singer in ‘Crazy Heart’, has turned his hand to music since the film. “Winning the oscar has helped me. I’m currently making an album with producer and songwriter T-Bone Burnett,” he explains.

Jeff adds that he has met music icon Elton John, and was impressed by the ‘Rocket oan’ singer. “I was recently on the ‘Speaking Clock’ tour, headlined by Leon Russell and Elton John. Elvis Costello was there and I got to sing with him, which was cool, I really enjoyed it,” he says. “Elton is a great person. We talked about doing a duet. I’d certainly like to.”
