Los Angeles: In what could be one of the most unusual pairings in showbiz history, Academy Award winning actor Jeff Bridges is set to play Betty White`s toy boy in a new TV show.
The 88-year-old who gave Saturday Night Live it`s highest ratings when she hosted it last month is playing a cougar in the TV show `Hot in Cleveland` and the Oscar winning actor will play one of her conquests, reported E!Online.
White`s co-star in the show Wendie Malick is all praises for the veteran.
"She`s another great broad. She comes in with a sparkle in her eyes. She still has an amazing attitude and she has rocking timing... She hasn`t lost it," said Malick.
The actress added that 60-year-old Bridges, who won the Academy Award for Best Actor this year, is on the wish list to play White`s toy boy.
"Jeff Bridges is perfect. May God bless Betty White," said Malick.
