Said woman will be played by Audrey Tautou, who finds herself caught up in some illegal hijinks with the duo, whilst Susan Sarandon is also a part of the film as a criminal who recently got done with a lengthy prison stretch. Turturro famously played Jesus Quintana in the Coen Brothers’ iconic The Big Lebowski back in 1998. He may have a mightily messed-up past as a sex offender, but that creep can roll, man. And when all is said and done, nobody fucks with the Jesus.
