Meet the (Other) Dude Who Helped Inspire 'The Big Lebowski'

Peter Exline is very good at telling The Story. He's good at telling stories in general.

"I love stories," he says over lunch on Presidents' Day at a L.A. cafe. "I love storytelling. I think I'm a good storyteller, but I think I also throw in too many details."

The Story is his best tale. It's the one that's partly about his friend Lew Abernathy. "He's a big guy from Texas, 6-foot-4, redhead, bad teeth, heavy. He was actually in Titanic. He's friends with Gale and Jim." He means Gale Anne Hurd and James Cameron, the former married couple who also used to be creative partners.
