It’s become a trend or maybe the norm that thrillers need to have a hot-headed young or middle-aged man or woman who doesn’t mind getting his or her hands dirty and that has worked just fine for the audience.
What if I told you that there’s a new series in town that tells you a story about an old man who after absconding from the CIA just wants to live a normal and is off the grid but gets sucked in because he knows too many secrets. Seems like a story that you’ve heard a lot of times before, right? The only difference is “The Old Man” and that is the title of the new FX Series that premiered on 16th June 2022.
The series stars Jeff Bridges (The Big Lebowski, True Grit) who has brought so much grit and attitude to the ventures he’s done and that’s what he brings to the series. The early reviews for the series are all praises for Jeff Bridges who was diagnosed with lymphoma during the series shoot and joined back when his cancer was in remission.
The series is based on the thriller novel of the same name by Thomas Perry who co-created the superhit series Jericho & Black Sails. The first two episodes of the series are out on FX and Disney+. Episodes will be released weekly.
