Huddleston, who died Tuesday at 85, starred in the 1998 crime comedy movie along with actors Jeff Bridges and John Goodman. Huddleston's character was millionaire Jeffrey Lebowski -- same name but very different lifestyle from Bridges' character, Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski."
Since its premiere, the film has grown a cult following.
Huddleson's wife recalled some of the reactions fans had about the movie.
"He was amazed that it connected him to a young generation who all knew him," Koeppe told CNN.
