Bradley Cooper’s perm has made an appearance on the set of the actor’s new film. Yes, I said perm.
Cooper’s new ‘do, which channels the ‘N Sync-era Justin Timberlake and every-era Dustin Diamond, was snapped as the actor walked with Silver Linings Playbook co-star Jennifer Lawrence on the set of Abscam Project(a working title).
The Bradley Cooper perm joins Christian Bale’s baldness in the new David O. Russell project, which is yet to receive an official title. Cooper was spied a few weeks back actually pulling off pink hair rollers pretty well. Kudos, that man.
Abscam Project focuses on a true story from the 1970s, in which a con artist and his partner-in-crime were forced to work with a federal agent to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians, including the volatile mayor of impoverished Camden, New Jersey.
As well as a curly-haired Cooper, the film will star Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K., and the aforementioned Lawrence and Bale.
Dramatic physical transformations tend to do well in awards season – think of the Oscars won by Natalie Portman (Black Swan), Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables), Charlize Theron (Monster), and Adrien Brody (The Pianist).
Admittedly, Bradley Cooper getting a perm isn’t quite as dramatic as any of those examples, but it might just snag the 38-year-old a second Oscar nomination. And it is pretty funny.
What do you make of Bradley Cooper’s curlier look?
