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?

Ahhhhhhhhh….

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 SaldanaThe 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)

Well hello there, cowpokes! I can tell by that gleam in yer eye that you’re a-lookin’ for casting updates coming out of the Cannes Film Festival. Well saddle up, pardner, because here we go! Yee-haw.

First up out of the corral is Dennis Quaid, who’s joining Jeremy Irons and Bradley Cooper in The Words. Quaid will play “Clay Hammond, a celebrated writer, in the tale in which Cooper’s character, another writer, discovers the price he must pay for stealing the work of another man, played by Irons.” Sounds like a rootin’-tootin’ good time, and also a meditation on creativity and plagiarism. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Next up under the branding iron are cowpokes Orlando Bloom and Nick Nolte, who’ve been cast in “coming-of-age road-trip comedy” Idea in America along with Stanley Tucci and Cristiana Capotondi. (The Hollywood Reporter)

The no. 3 spot on this rodeo is held by Helen Hunt, who’s a-gonna direct and star in romantic comedy Ride. A romantic comedy starring and directed by Helen Hunt? YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-HAW!

Finally, we got England‘s Number 1 Wrangler Colin Firth, who will play the lead role in an untitled comedy to be directed by Dante Ariola from a script written by Becky Johnston. Here’s a plot synopsis, which rolls through your field of vision like a tumblin’ tumbleweed: “Firth plays a man who hates his job and is hated by his ex-wife and son. Feeling he missed his one shot at living the dream, he fakes his death and buys a new identity.” (Deadline)

Breaking! Secondary celebrity Bradley Cooper has his next project in the works! The Hangover star is next set to appear in The Words, which, according to my sources, is “about a writer who steals another man’s work and must face the consequences.” Wow!!

Cooper, who is mainly known for comedy, appears to be trying to make a small adjustment to the way people perceive him on the off-chance that a significant amount of people are thinking about him at any point. Jeremy Irons is also in talks for a part in the movie. I hope he’s ready to get blasted off the screen by Bradley Cooper!

No director yet, although The Words is being produced Michael Benaroya, James Young, and Tatiana Kelly, who are probably smacking their collective foreheads in incredulity over how they managed to get Bradley Cooper to be in their movie. (via The Wrap)
