Jesus is back! No, not that Jesus, it’s Jesus Quintana of The Big Lebowski, the eccentric bowler played by John Turturro in the 1998 cult classic. It was revealed over the summer that Turturro, who had long campaigned for a spin-off film about his character, had started work on a film featuring the character titled Going Places. Now, Turturro has revealed the first image of himself in character.
Turturro is writing and directing Going Places, which is based on the 1974 French film Les Valseuses. That phrase, naturally, is slang for testicles. In the film, Quintana is a thief who competes with another criminal named Petey (Bobby Cannavale) to give a women (Audrey Tautou) her first orgasm.
