Kristofferson did good on SEMI-TOUGH and played a bad guy suit in that Mel Gibson movie and FIRE DOWN BELOW. The guy looks the same since the 70's.
He's one of the best supporting actors ever!
He plays cool without even trying.

I think it's actually kinda sad there is such a lack of actresses that can sing and act. Back in the day, it was almost a requirement to be able to do both.

Hell, even singers aren't required to be able to sing these days. For that matter, many popular actors aren't required to act either.

Re: Clint Eastwood to remake "A Star is Born" w/ Beyonce and possibly Will Smith

Looks like Eastwood is passing this on to his American Sniper star.

Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros is negotiating with its American Sniper star Bradley Cooper to make his feature directorial debut on the remake of A Star Is Born. The hope is for Cooper also to star in the film. Once his deal is done, their first stop will be to Beyonce, who once was positioned to play the role of the young woman whose dreams of stardom are helped by a self-destructive icon whose best days are behind him. She was circling when Clint Eastwood was going to helm the remake, and the director discussed that male lead role with Cooper. She hasn’t yet been re-approached formally. Cooper will take a pass at the script with Will Fetters, who wrote the most recent draft, and the hope is that he can get into this wholeheartedly when he finishes performing The Elephant Man in its London transfer from Broadway.

re: A Star is Born - remake (2018, D: Bradley Cooper) S: Lady Gaga, Cooper

It's a wise move after seeing how Jersey Boys turned out, but who knows how good B. Cooper is behind the camera.

I just hope he uses his connections and fills every role with former members of The State and Wet Hot American Summer.

I dug Jersey Boys Different strokes, I guess.

No need for this remake, and less (or ZERO) Beyonce is always a good thing. Better to just drop the project entirely.

Even if they don't use Beyonce, I'd be very surprised if they don't go with a black cast and hip-hop setting to cash in on the success of Empire. Which would be more interesting than any of the other versions of the story.

re: A Star is Born - remake (2018, D: Bradley Cooper) S: Lady Gaga, Cooper

Quote:
After a lengthy courtship, Lady Gaga is ready to play Bradley Cooper’s starlet in his remake of “A Star is Born” for Warner Bros.

Deadline Hollywood reported last month that Cooper wanted Gaga for the part, but the singer was undecided at the time. Sources now say she’s on board and negotiations are currently under way.

Cooper will direct and star in the film, which will mark his helming debut. Cooper had been meeting with dozens of actresses for the role after Beyonce had to bow due to scheduling conflicts with her latest concert tour, and sources say Gaga was high on his list from the start.

The project, based on William Wellman’s 1937 film starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, centers on a fading movie star who helps a young aspiring actress while his own career spirals downward.

Cooper will produce through his 22 Green banner along with Jon Peters, Billy Gerber and Basil Iwanyk.

This marks the third the film has been remade, the most recent starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. Cooper came on as director following his work with Clint Eastwood on the smash hit “American Sniper.” Eastwood had tried getting the film made for sometime and at one point had looked at Cooper for the fading movie star part.

Eastwood eventually left the project but still had hopes it would get made some day and suggested to Cooper that he try directing the pic since Cooper was actively looking for his first directing job.

With Gaga’s commitment, the film is now the closest it has come to greenlight and the studio is now eyeing February 2017 start date for production.

Gaga has already made name for herself as one of the world’s biggest popstars but as of late has been focusing more and more on her acting career. She is coming off her acclaimed perf in “American Horror Story: Hotel”, which earned her a Golden Globe for best Actress in a mini-series or movie. Gaga was also recently nominated for her song in “The Hunting Ground.”

She is repped by CAA.

Hrmm. Gaga. She is a solid singer. She can act a bit too. Dunno if she's good enough to lead something like this but... just to see Cooper direct and get Gaga in the lead... I'll buy a ticket to see wtf happens.

Dunno about Cooper as director but I think GaGa is a good choice for the role.
