May the great cinematic mystery of who won that bowling tournament please be put to rest. Jesus Quintana, the second most iconic wearer of the color purple, is returning to the big screen in Going Places, and now we have our first look at The Big Lebowski sequel starring and directed by John Turturro. In it, Jesus is still bowling, still rocking some questionable facial hair, and still wearing purple — albeit in a more forgiving fashion, as Father Time inevitably must come for us all. Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, and Susan Sarandon all co-star in Going Places, which was initially called 100 Minutes With Jesus and is going forward without the Coen Brothers’ involvement. As for what the sequel is about, well, we’ll just leave the synopsis here in full, as there’s a lot to chew on. Take a proper look at Jesus back in action below.

John Turturro plays Jesus Quintana in ‘Going Places,’ a film about a trio of misfits 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.
