The Words

"By now, you know the drill with Bradley Cooper: He will play a handsome jerk and he will play it well, and each jerk will be slightly different than the last and each jerk will push the limits of Cooper’s acting abilities in ways the previous jerk did not, and each jerk he plays will lead to bigger and better jerks up the road, and the leading man will take his pick at which jerk he will next bring to life.

In The Words, Cooper plays the biggest archetypal jerk there is – the struggling writer, a character grounded so deeply in his fragile vanity, grandiose ambition, and desperate megalomania that his own psyche is the central cause of conflict. You could say that Cooper has been preparing to play this particular jerk, literary nothing-turned-overnight-superstar Rory Jansen, his entire career."
