Nobody f**ks with the Jesus in first look at John Turturro's Going Places

Going Places John Turturro The Big Lebowski

It's been close to twenty years since Jesus Quintana (John Turturro) first brought his own particular brand of ball-shining craziness to Joel and Ethan Coen's THE BIG LEBOWSKI, and the character is set to return in GOING PLACES, an upcoming film which has been written and directed by Turturro himself. In addition to serving as a BIG LEBOWSKI spin-off, the flick is also a remake of the 1974 French erotic comedy LES VALSEUSES. Although the Coen brothers aren't involved with GOING PLACES, Turturro did get their blessing to reprise his character for the film. A first-look image was released today and from the look of things, Jesus really hasn't changed all that much.

GOING PLACES follows a trio of misfits, one of which includes Jesus, whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves "into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude towards the past or future backfires time and again, even as they inadvertently perform good deeds. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law, from society and from the hairdresser, all while the bonds of their outsider family strengthen." The upcoming film, which also stars Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, Susan Sarandon and Sonia Braga, doesn't have a release date at the moment, but it certainly has a built in audience of rabid BIG LEBOWSKI fans who are eager to devour it as soon as possible.

You people know this is a movie and he isn't real, right?

Look, pedophilia is disgusting but to say you won't see a movie just because a character exposed himself to children is really dumb. It's a movie, it gives the character depth and a unique background. It's time to stop hiding real shit from audiences. Enjoy a movie, hate a character, but don't judge it just because a character did something stupid.

I like John Turturro a lot. Probably one of my all-time favorite actors. But I'm always wary of further adventures of the Coen brothers' characters. Especially their comedies like Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski, and Burn After Reading, where the characters are so larger-than-life. Jesus Quintana is a memorable scene-stealer, but he's sold to us as a full package (no pun intended), the arrogant show-off, and the sexual deviant who was locked up for exposing himself to 8-year-olds.

Not to mention I'd always figured he was a self-invented persona, because of how he pronounces his name. It's not Hay-sus, like most Spanish-speakers.

Without Bridges and/or Goodman in this, I don't really know how well the film will really perform. That and the fact that the character is a pedophile.

Wasn't his character a pedophile in Big Lebowski? Are they expecting people to forget that? I don't really see the point of using this character instead of creating a new one, unless they plan to have cameos of Big Lebowski characters in this movie. It would be cool for Sam Elliot to make an appearance, or possible narrate.

Walter said he was a pedophile. But maybe Jesus was wrongfully convicted? Thinking maybe he got into this situation by a stupid accident!? - maybe because he's an idiot?

I wonder if he'll be funnier than he was in Transformers.

Is Transformers your only known reference to him? Have you not seen him in other movies? He's done a lot of comedic roles that he was great in, so I'm not sure why Transformers would be your only comedic reference. Unless you're just one of those assholes that can't wait to find a way to take a dig at Transformers, like the guy who replied to you. That shit is old and repetitive, get the fuck over it.
