It's the early nineties, sometime around the first Iraq war. Jeffrey Lebowski, known as "The Dude" to his friends, comes home and gets jumped and threatened by two guys. They pee on his rug because they mistake him for another Jeff Lebowski who is rich and whos wife owes money to their boss. "The Dudes" two friends convince him to go to the other Jeff Lebowski to get him to compensate him for the rug. When the Lebowskis meet, their worlds collide and get more and more mixed up with one another. While "The Dudes" friends keep trying to help him, all they succeed in doing is making his life more and more difficult to get out of his situation.
Walter Sobchak: Nihilists! Fuck me. I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.
Trivia: At the beginning of the movie, when The Dude is writing a check for the cream at the grocery, look at the date on the check. Sept 11, 1991. A few seconds later we see George Bush Sr. talking about Iraq. So here we have a scene containing Sept. 11th, George Bush and references to the Middle East in a movie that takes place in 1991.

Question: What role does Paris Themmen play in this movie? (IMDB.com only lists him as "uncredited".).
