Bradley Cooper calls working with Jennifer Lawrence and Louis C.K. in “The Ends of the Earth” “wonderful”

If you loved the chemistry between Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and director David O. Russell in “Silver Linings Playbook,” then you’re in luck, because the trio is working together again on the new Weinstein Company film “The Ends of the Earth.” The movie was announced before “Silver Linings” swept the Spirit Awards and Lawrence won the Best Actress Academy Award, and is currently gearing up to start shooting.

When IFC caught up with Cooper on the Spirit Awards red carpet, we couldn’t resist asking him about the upcoming collaboration. The Hollywood Reporter writes that “The Ends of the Earth” is “about an oil tycoon who has everything stripped from him after he is caught in an affair,” and Cooper seemed genuinely excited to delve into the project.

“We start in two weeks. It’s wonderful; Jen just signed on and Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams and Louis C.K. I can’t wait,” he told IFC. “We did a camera test yesterday and it was pretty out of control. I’m pretty excited.”

It turns out Cooper has a bit of history with C.K. When Cooper was still a student at The Actor’s Studio, he was filmed asking Sean Penn a question during “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” C.K. later mocked Cooper without mentioning his name, joking during an interview, “There’s no way you ask Sean Penn a question and then you’re going to be huge.”

Of course, Cooper has become huge, culminating in his recent Spirit Awards and Oscars Best Actor nominations. We asked Cooper if he was going to bring up the jibe to C.K. on set, and he admitted, “We talked about it already.” So how did it go over? “It was awkward.”

“The Ends of the Earth” was written by “Argo’s” Chris Terrio. No word yet on when it will be released.

It’s been (Barenaked Ladies style) seven years since Comedy Bang! Bang! premiered on Southern California’s Indie 103 radio station as a music and variety show, then known as Comedy Death-Ray. And in those seven years, host Scott Aukerman has evolved the radio show into a podcast, a TV series, and a comedy mainstay for fans of surreal, offbeat humor. To celebrate the special occasion, Scott invited fan favorites Jason Mantzoukas, Horatio Sanz and Paul F. Tompkins, as well as a slew of popular characters and segments, to CB!B!’s 7th Anniversary Show.

Click here to listen to the 7th anniversary show on Earwolf. And just a reminder, Comedy Bang! Bang! returns to IFC for a fifth season on June 3rd with back-to-back episodes on Fridays at 11P ET/PT and 11:30P ET/PT.

The stars of That ’70s Show had their own throwback reunion as Fez, Jackie, Kelso, Donna, and Hyde recently got back together for a candid on-set photo. Posted to Laura Prepon‘s Instagram account, actors Wilmer Valderrama, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, and Prepon posed on the set of Netflix’s The Ranch — which stars Kutcher and Masterson as brothers who manage their family ranch. Older and wiser but no less striking, the cast seems to have weathered the ’80s (and the ’00s) very well.

Keeping this from being a complete That ’70s Show reunion is Topher Grace’s absence, but this photo works as a reunion of the cast from the post-Eric final season. With The Ranch renewed for a second season, we could be seeing more ’70s reunion moments. Maybe Tommy Chong will stop by?
