Jeff Bridges has been diagnosed with lymphoma, the actor said on Monday, but added that his “prognosis is good.”

“As the Dude would say.. New S**T has come to light,” Bridges tweeted. “I have been diagnosed with Lymphoma. Although it is a serious disease, I feel fortunate that I have a great team of doctors and the prognosis is good. I’m starting treatment and will keep you posted on my recovery.”

In a follow-up tweet, the “Big Lebowski” star added, “I’m profoundly grateful for the love and support from my family and friends. Thank you for your prayers and well wishes. And, while I have you, please remember to go vote. Because we are all in this together.”

The 70-year-old actor will next be seen in the FX drama series “The Old Man,” a drama based on Thomas Perry’s novel of the same name. According to the network, the series “centers on Dan Chase (Bridges) who absconded from the CIA decades ago and has been living off the grid since. When an assassin arrives and tries to take Chase out, the old operative learns that to ensure his future he now must reconcile his past.”
