Bradley Cooper May Direct 'Kokowääh?' Kokowhäääääät?!

Bradley Cooper in "Silver Linings Playbook" The Weinstein Co.

Bradley Cooper already has two skills that put him at the top of Hollywood's food chain: He's an excellent actor (as shown by his Best Actor nomination at this year's Oscars) and he's also really sexy. So a guy with that much going for him couldn't have another incredible skill, could he?

Well, we may be about to find out, as according to Deadline, Cooper has just signed on to the upcoming remake of the Greman film "Kokowääh" — and he may be directing it himself.

Jezz, Ben Affleck, look what you've started!

FIrst, let's get to the question you no doubt have: Who, or what, is a "Kokowääh?" Well, despite the nonsensical name, it's actually a touching and humorous look at the relationship between a professional writer (and those guys are almost always as sexy as Bradley Cooper, often moreso) and the 8-year-old daughter he never knew he had.

So, great. Now we all know that. More important, of course, is the fact that Cooper is considering directing the English lanugage adaptation "Kokowääh," which will almost certainly be renamed for American audiences. It's not set in stone yet; though Cooper has agreed to star in the film, "Kokowääh" is just one of several scripts he's considering for his directorial debut.

Still, we're certainly curious to see if Cooper has as much talent behind the camera as he has in front of it. Cinema history, after all, is littered with the egos of actors who tried and failed to become directors, but once in a while someone like Affleck comes along and successfully makes the leap.

We've got our fingers crossed for you, Bradley. And hey, don't worry. Because if this doesn't work out, there's always "The Hangover: Part IV."
