Watch out, Bradley Cooper! Matthew Rhys will no longer be spying on you during dinners as he does on the series, “The Americans,” but he will be cooking up a storm. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor just joined the cast of Bradley Cooper’s unnamed food-filled film. Read on to learn more about this story.
The still unnamed movie will focus on Adam Jones, portrayed by Bradley Cooper. Jones is a two-star Michelin Parisian chef, who is capable of making various gastronomic delights.

The new, still untitled movie boasts a star-studded cast, which includes Uma Thurman, Sienna Miller, Sam Keeley, Sarah Greene, Emma Thompson, Lily James, Omar Sy and Jamie Dornan. However, their respective roles are yet to be revealed.
Rhys is best known for his role as Philip Jennings in the Cold War-themed television series, “The Americans,” on FX. He is also known for his portrayal of “Pride and Prejudice’s” Fitzwilliam Darcy in the BBC miniseries, “Death Comes to Pemberley,” in 2013.
John Wells will direct the movie. It will be written by Steven Knight and produced by Stacey Sher, Michael Samburg, and Erwin Stoff. The Weinstein Company, who is best known for producing films such as Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds” in 2009, will be responsible for the production. Its recent projects include Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming “Hateful Eight” and “The Giver,” which will be released later this month.
