Bradley Cooper gets cooking lessons from Gordon Ramsay for 'Chef' role
Cooper is set to star in "Chef," a drama directed by John Wells for Sony Pictures about a drug-addicted chef with Michelin-starred restaurant dreams. A source close to the project tells The Sun newspaper, "Gordon's going to be giving Bradley a crash-course in cookery and teaching him some flash tricks like knife-work so Bradley looks like an experienced chef."
Though "Chef" won't start production until 2014, the film has already been making headlines. Sony sent a cease-and-desist letter over a comedy project of the same name, which Jon Favreau plans to produce, direct and star in. Also attached to Favreau's "Chef" are Robert Downey, Jr., Sofia Vergara and John Leguizamo.
