Profile Bio Text
Lloyd Vernet “Beau” Bridges III (born December 9, 1941) is a U.S. three-time Emmy Award-winning actor. Bridges was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of actor Lloyd Bridges and his college sweetheart, Dorothy Dean (née Simpson). He was nicknamed "Beau" by his mother and father after Ashley Wilkes` son in Gone with the Wind, the title of the book they were reading at the time. He has two younger brothers, Garrett and Jeff, and one younger sister, Lucinda. His brother, Garrett, died of sudden infant death syndrome on August 3, 1948. He has shared a close relationship with his brother, actor Jeff Bridges, to whom he acted as a surrogate father during his earlier life when their real father was busy with work. In 1989, he starred opposite his brother in perhaps his best known role, as one of The Fabulous Baker Boys. In 1949, Bridges played a secondary juvenile role in the movie The Red Pony. Wanting to be a basketball star, however, he played his freshman year at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and later transferred to the University of Hawaii. In the 1962-1963 television season, Bridges, along with his brother, Jeff, appeared on their father`s CBS anthology series, The Lloyd Bridges Show. In the 1993-1994 television season, Bridges appeared again with his father in the 15-episode CBS comedy/western series, Harts of the West, set at a dude ranch in Nevada. The cast also included Harley Jane Kozak as Beau`s wife, Alison Hart, and Sean Murray as older son Zane Grey Hart. In 1995, Bridges starred in the first ever two-part episode of the new series of Outer Limits. In 1998, he starred as Judge Bob Gibbs in the one-season Maximum Bob on ABC. He had a recurring role in the Showtime series Beggars and Choosers (1999-2000). In 2001, he guest-starred as Daniel McFarland, the stepfather of Jack McFarland, in two episodes of the NBC sitcom Will & Grace. From 2002 to 2003, he took on the role of Senator Tom Gage, newly-appointed Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, in over 30 episodes of the drama series The Agency. In January 2005, he was cast as Major General Hank Landry, the new commander of Stargate Command in Stargate SG-1. He has also played the character in five episodes of the spin-off series Stargate Atlantis. In November 2005, he guest-starred as Carl Hickey, the father of the title character in the hit NBC Comedy My Name Is Earl. Bridges` character has since become recurring. Bridges received a 2007 Emmy Award nomination for his performance. On February 8, 2009, he won a Grammy Award for Best Spoken World Album. He, along with Cynthia Nixon and Blair Underwood, read Al Gore`s "An Inconvenient Truth."
Bridges married Julie Landfield in 1964 but they divorced in 1984. They have two sons:
Casey Bridges (b. 1969, adopted)
Jordan Bridges (b. 1973)
Soon afterwards, in the same year 1984, he married his current wife, Wendy Treece Bridges. The couple has three children:
Dylan Bridges (b. 1984)
Emily "Beau" Bridges (b. 1986)
Ezekiel (Zeke) Jeffry Bridges (b. 1993)
