Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Irons have been set since early February to star in The Words, a drama in which Cooper plays an author accused of plagiarism; along with his role in The Place Beyond the Pines, it seems to be another effort from Cooper to prove he's not just that loutish dude from The Hangover. Now he's got a lot more castrates to help him in that quest; Olivia Wilde, Zoe Saldana, Ben Barnes, J.K. Simmons and Dennis Quaid have all been confirmed for roles in the film as well.

The press release doesn't specify what roles they'll all play, but there's something else to be interested in here-- the movie will be the directorial debut of Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal, two of the many writers who participated in the mess that was the Tron: Legacy screenplay. They brought the script for The Words through the Sundance Screenwriter's Lab, which pretty much guarantees it will be in better shape than the giant Disney project; presumably the number of talented actors who have signed on know that too. It's also nice to see them bringing in Tron: Legacy's Olivia Wilde; even bad blockbusters can make for relationships that pay off down the line.
