Sunday night, Customers at a UK Burger King got a burger, fries, and Bradley Cooper. Mr. Cooper is flipping burgers at a UK BK. Though this reads as a Where are they Now? TV episode, Mr. Cooper is preparing for a new film role.
The new comedy, under its current working title Adam Jones, stars the Hangover actor as a chef who assembles a crew to create the “best restaurant ever”. According to Wikipedia, the film was once called “Chef” and also stars actress Sienna Miller. The Inquisitr also reported about this film last month. According to The Inquisitr and Variety, Bradley Cooper is also working on another film under Academy Award winning director Clint Eastwood. The film is called American Sniper and is about the well-known U.S sniper Chris Kyle.
The Toronto Sun reports “A source telling British newspaper The Sun, ‘Bradley was training alongside genuine Burger King staff. The aim was to learn the ‘art of the flip’ which he nailed fairly quickly.
“There was no real fanfare from him. You’d never know he was a big star by the way he spoke to people. He spent Sunday night learning the skills while the restaurant was open to the public and then filmed for most of the day on Monday.”
This all went down on Sunday evening at a Burger King in Leicester Square in London. Reports suggest that Mr. Cooper was also learning how to cook fries, all before filming some scenes for the upcoming film. There were no other stars on hand, but suffice it say, the UK Burger King customers were certainly not complaining. Many of the customers were either shocked or excited at the fact Bradley Cooper, the 2011 People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive”, was flipping their burgers and asking if they wanted fries with that.
The burger flipping at the UK Burger King was not the only interesting food related news involving Mr. Cooper. Bradley has also picked up a new friend to help him prepare to be a Chef for ‘Chef’. The UK Daily Mirror stated:
“Meanwhile, Bradley hasn’t only been in fast-food chains as he prepares for his new movie, having become friends with potty mouth chef Gordon Ramsay, who has taken him to some of his swanky restaurants.
Bradley and Suki have also been on a double dates with Gordon and his wife Tana Ramsay and the four-some were spotted in Venice recently, while Gordon claims he taught Bradley how to swear as well as cook.
We think he’d make a great contestant on Celebrity MasterChef. Although, they might need a beeper.”
It is unclear how flipping Burger King burgers will help Bradley Cooper learn to be a “Chef”. Either way, Mr. Cooper will certainly have a budding, prosperous career at BK or McDonald’s, if he so chooses.
