See what else the Tron man has to say

Jeff Bridges, known to many as the classic star of Tron and soon to be known to many more as the star of Tron: Legacy, has some interesting things to say about the state of the 3D union.

Bridges has become something of an icon in the world of nerddom because of his portrayal of a man who, nearly 30 years ago, captivated moviegoers with an exploration of what it would be like to live inside a computer.

The upcoming sequel to Tron, a film that is pretty much 28 years in the making, looks to be by all measures one of the most special-effects-heavy box office creation ever. Its presentation in 3D promises to be nothing short of amazing.

Indeed, it's a movie that was made with a 3D audience in mind. So how does Bridges feel about the whole 3D craze? He told all in an interview with Cnet.

Asked if the new 3D standard was merely a fad, he said no. He goes to the movies a lot and enjoys 3D presentations. However, he sees no value at all to trying to bring that experience to the home.

"That I would have to put the glasses on to see and stuff? I don't think so, no," he said of owning a 3D TV at home.

Regardless, Bridges says he expects big things for the future of 3D: " It's going to pick up speed like it does, and who knows where it's going to go?"

He says, though, that theaters are an important part of the entire industry and everyone should realize that. " I think there's something very wonderful about getting into a dark room with a bunch of people. There's something cool about that. Brings us all together in one room where we can experience all those emotions," he said.

Words to live by, Jeff. Words to live by.
