Olivia Wilde is squaring up to join Bradley Cooper in The Words, a dramatic thriller from the writers of Tron: Legacy (who are also directing). Before we go any further, can we just take a minute to imagine what beautiful children these two would make?
Wilde’s role hasn’t been disclosed, but she joins a cast already packed with the aforementioned Cooper, John Hannah, J.K. Simmons, Dennis Quaid, Jeremy Irons, and Zoe Saldana. The Words follows a writer who finds there is a stiff price to pay for stealing another man’s work. A thrilling price? Probably.
This role is just one of many Wilde has lined up for herself as she is quickly finding herself scheduled to a Franco-esque degree, but without all the batshit crazy side projects. She’s got Cowboys and Aliens, The Change-Up, In Time, Butter, Welcome to People, Blackbird, and of course, a little TV show called “House.”
No wonder she doesn’t have time to date my buddy Craig. (Variety)
