Bradley Cooper In Talks To Play Lucifer In ‘Paradise Lost’

Bradley Cooper would made a great Lucifer.  Just look at the picture above from Monday night’s MET Costume Institute Gala.  Good tan, piercing blue eyes, a sh*t-eating grin.  Yes, he’ll do.

According to Contact Music, the Hangover II studmuffin is in talks to play the devilish (literally) archangel in the film adaptation of John Milton’s poem, Paradise Lost.  Cooper’s character will battle his heavenly counterparts, with the primary focus of the plot being the fall of man (Adam and Eve’s kinda big faux pas).

Paradise Lost’s director, Alex Proyas, is also at the helm of The Crow remake (he directed the original in 1993), which Cooper is rumored to be attached to.
