Bradley Cooper to Star in The Words

Bradley Cooper Has a Way With the Words

I hope Bradley Cooper learned a few things about playing an author in his upcoming thriller Limitless, because those skills could come in handy for his newest project. The actor has signed on for The Words, where he'll play a writer who hits the high point of his career by stealing another man's work. (Naturally, the secret comes back to haunt him). Jeremy Irons is in talks to costar while Tron: Legacy writers Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal will direct.

Cooper is still finding his footing as a leading man, and I'm happy to see that he's reaching for heavier stuff rather than staying within the confines of action films and comedies (not that I have anything against The Hangover). What's your take — can Cooper handle meatier roles or is he better suited to showing off his charm and pretty face?

I have a irrational dislike for him. He just looks like an a-hole he's probably a nice person but his face just screams a-hole. Sorry Bradley
