Jeff Bridges, star and executive producer of FX's upcoming drama The Old Man, shared some first footage of the series and said that he's "feelin' better" after struggles with cancer and COVID-19.

"My cancer is in remission — the 9" to 12" mass has shrunk down to the size of a marble. My COVID is in the rear view mirror," he said in an update on his personal website.

"COVID kicked my ass pretty good, but I'm double vaccinated and feeling much better now," he continued, following up on a post from March where he explained that he contracted COVID-19 at the same place he was receiving chemotherapy for his lymphoma. "I heard that the vaccine can help folks with long haulers. Maybe that's the cause of my quick improvement."

After contracting COVID-19, Bridges said he needed oxygen assistance while walking. But he revealed he accomplished a major milestone once his daughter's wedding approached.

"I had a goal — walking my daughter Hayley down the aisle," he wrote. "She was getting married to a wonderful guy, Justin Shane. Thanks to Zach [Wermers, physical therapist] and my terrific medical team, I was able to, not only walk Hay down the aisle, but do the father/bride dance with her without oxygen."

Bridges shared a sweet video of himself and Hayley dancing at her wedding to Ray Charles' 'Ain't That Love,' which fans can check out on his website by clicking on the caricature of the pair dancing.

In the post, Bridges also shared that he's "excited to get back to work on The Old Man! It's lookin good. Here's a peek..."

Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Thomas Perry, The Old Man centres on Dan Chase (Bridges), who left the CIA decades ago and has been living off the grid. 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.

In the new clip, his character Chase is in a dark room in what appears to be his home, wielding a gun and discovering a man writhing in pain on the floor after being attacked by two large dogs. Chase calls off the dogs, then asks, "You wanna tell me your name?" He receives no answer and shoots the man twice.

The Old Man is slated for a 2022 premiere.
