GOOD NEWS FOR BRADLEY COOPER & JENNIFER LAWRENCE FANSPosted: February 18, 2013
Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, and David O. Russell all teamed up for Silver Linings Playbook and it turned out to be a good move. All three people received Oscar nominations: Lawrence for Best Actress, Cooper for Best Actor, Russell for Best Director. You can check out my glowing review here.
According to Deadline, the threesome will team up again in a currently untitled project. It revolves around a 1970s sting operation named Abscam and it will also star Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner.
Lawrence and Cooper are also starring in the movie Serena, which follows an ambitious young couple named George (Cooper) and Serena (Lawrence) Pemberton as they try to build a timber empire in 1929. Tensions arise when Serena learns she cannot have children, and you can head over to ComingSoon.net to get more info about it.
On one hand, Lawrence and Cooper work well as a team so it makes sense to keep having them in movies. On the other hand, he still looks much older than her and she looks much younger than him, and I think that’s going to lead to her being mis-cast in movies. I feel she’s playing roles that are too old for her, especially now that she’s the face of Hunger Games, which is popular among the teen and young adult set.
What are your thoughts? Should Lawrence and Cooper keep teaming up for movies? Do you think Lawrence keeps choosing roles that are too old for her? She’s 22 years old.
