I think Thomas Pynchon should make it.  Thre main qualifications:  1. Admitted to using drugs while writing some of "Gravity's Rainbow".  2.  Shuns public exposure and 3, related to 2, Hired Prof. Irwin Corey to accept the National Book Award for him for Gravity's Rainbow.

While I am at it I think Irwin Corey, The Worlds Foremost Authority should be one too.  Just for his speech in accepting the prize for Pynchon.  Read it here:

Seconded. Although rather than SB I'd nominate the guy who wrote/played him, Kevin Smith!
A good man. And thorough.

I got a few for you.
1. Martin Luther King, Jr.  One really righteous Civil Rights Dude.
2. Duane Allman, the Dude of the slide guitar.
3. Wooderson from Dazed and Confused, personifying "takin'er easy" while he gets older and teenage girls stay the same age.

Oooooh, a GREAT dude, dude.

Carlin needs to be on the list, even though in his later years he was a bit of a cranky dude, he was still one funny MF'r.

Dudes when getting older slightly Walterize themselves. Possibility?

I would like to nominate Rob Brezsny as one great contemporary Dude.  His poetic, funky astrological columns and visions of PRONOIA (opposite of paranoia) ways of loving the world & peace for all are something we desperately need in this screwy world.  How can you not love a man that urges us all to "liberate your imagination"?

In his own words:

WHAT IS PRONOIA

DEFINITION: Pronoia is the antidote for paranoia. It's the understanding that the universe is fundamentally friendly. It's a mode of training your senses and intellect so you're able to perceive the fact that life always gives you exactly what you need, exactly when you need it.

HYPOTHESES: Evil is boring. Cynicism is idiotic. Fear is a bad habit. Despair is lazy. Joy is fascinating. Love is an act of heroic genius. Pleasure is our birthright.

PROCEDURE: Act as if the universe is a prodigious miracle created for your amusement and illumination. Assume that secret helpers are working behind the scenes to assist you in turning into the gorgeous masterpiece you were born to be. Join the conspiracy to shower all of creation with blessings.

DISCLAIMER: The material in PRONOIA may be too intense and controversial for some readers. It contains graphic scenes of peace, love, joy, passion, reverence, splendor, and understanding. You should therefore proceed with caution if you are a jaded hipster who is suspicious of feeling healthy and happy. Ask yourself: "Am I ready to stop equating cynicism with insight? Do I dare take the risk that exposing myself to uplifting entertainment might dull my intelligence? If you doubt your ability to handle relaxing breakthroughs, you should stop reading now.

Check him out, he's my favorite funky dude: http://www.freewillastrology.com/

I also *absolutely* second the nominees of George Carlin & Mitch Hedberg!  (Btw, I'm so jazzed to find this site & forums...can't wait to become a fully ordained dude!)

there are too many posts here for me to take the time to check, but i bet somebody already mentioned him:
Bob Dylan
his songs surrounded many of the topics covered in Dudeism. He also was never afraid to do his own thing. He constantly revisited his world philosophies and never focused his career around what his fans liked, but what he was into at the time.  My current favorite quote of his is "Nietzsche didn't wear an umpire's suit." In my opinion a prototypical Dudeism quote.
He definitely has a place among the great dudes in history.
