Cooper’s one of those up and coming British actors, and he was at
Cannes with his new film, style="font-style: italic;"> style="font-weight: bold;">Tamara Drewe (well, it’s really Stephen Frears’
new film. Or Gemma Arterton, since she stars in it. But you get the
point), and when talking with Salon he revealed that he’s been cast as
the young Howard Stark in the upcoming Marvel movie Captain
America: The First Avenger.
Well, maybe he revealed it to them.
There’s no quote in the piece wherein Cooper says he’s playing Stark,
it’s just sort of asserted in the article. Young Howard will almost
certainly be in the film, and I’ve heard that the first Stark Expo could
even be in the movie. Cooper doesn’t look much like John Slattery, who
played Howard in Iron Man 2 (or the first film’s Gerard
Sanders), but he does look like he could be related to Robert Downey Jr.
kind of on the edge of my seat for more style="font-style: italic;"> style="font-weight: bold;">Captain America news.
Info has to begin pouring out soon, right? The movie’s going to start
shooting in a few weeks.
