Third Time Around
Tomorrow our dear Jennifer Lawrence will be hosting the American comedy staple, Saturday Night Live– and I predict that three to six specific people will be there to cheer her on, or to even participate. Those people are as follows: Her mom, her dad, possibly her two brothers, her co-star and friend Josh Hutcherson, as well as her friend and co-star Bradley Cooper. Jen’s hosting for several reasons, but I can only guess at what some of them are, but one is most definitely to drum up more attention for Silver Linings Playbook, which if you’ve been asleep for the entire season– just won a butt load of awards. She’s probably also there to promote The Hunger Games franchise as well, but Silver Linings is forefront in everyone’s minds, so please if they don’t mention Hunger Games, (which why wouldn’t they?), don’t pitch a fit, ‘kay? Did I mention Bradley Cooper yet? Oh yeah, I did! Okay, so here’s the deal guys, I know he’s not technically the right age, and doesn’t wholly fit the description, but right here, right now– or more like a couple of months ago, but I kept it to myself and a few close friends– I’m putting Cooper at the top of my list for possible Boggs’.
Note: Jeremy Renner will always be my tippy-top choice, ’cause he’s awesome, and no one can convince me otherwise, they just can’t, so don’t even try– just don’t. There are differences between Cooper and Renner though, and it’s not just the height and age differences (Cooper’s 6’1, Renner’s 5’9. Cooper’s 38 years-old, Renner’s 42– and to be honest both of them look younger than their chronological ages), it’s the acknowledgement of interest. Or at least what’s come off as interest, ’cause frankly it came off a little wishy-washy. Here’s the facts: Jeremy Renner has only ever appeared in a sketch on SNL that joked about his character Hawkeye from The Avangers being like Katniss Everdeen, and Bradley Cooper has actually said that he’d like to have a part in The Hunger Games franchise. Big difference there, right? There’s more though, Cooper as we know has already worked with Jennifer Lawrence twice, and it doesn’t sound like either of them would be apposed to working together again. The problem, or basically non-problem is the pretty much also non-problem that Cooper, as I said before, does not fit the description of the character. I’m willing to over look this fact for the fact that many of the already cast actors didn’t fit the so-called descriptions of their characters to a T, then again a lot of the character descriptions from the books were hell-a vague, so we can’t really pass judgement on the casting department when they had so little to go on to begin with.
So here goes, A. we know he and Jen have a good working relationship, friendship, and good chemistry on screen. B. he’s a tried and true good actor, who’s versatile, smart, and willing to try new things all the time, as well as take risks. C. I don’t have a C. D. I honestly would not mind staring at Bradley Cooper off and on for 2 and a half hours, and I hear he’s a sweet guy in real life, so I doubt anyone in the cast or crew would be all “Bradley Cooper is a shit, I hate him, meehhhhhhhh!!” E. Who the hell ever does an E? Me! He does have the blue eyes that Collins wrote Boggs to have, so– score!
What can I say, I like living in a fantasy world where Debra Zane is my bestie, and she listens to my ideas?
