Yep, that's the one! 

I'm just going to start referring to Ian as "the Dude". 

To quote: 

Sometimes there's a man... I won't say a hero, 'cause what's a hero? 
But sometimes, there's a man – and I'm talkin' about the Dude 
here – sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time 
and place. He fits right in there.
