Bradley Cooper is exceptional at playing the cool jerk that viewers can't help but love.
In "The Hangover" and "The Hangover Part II," his character Phil Wenneck is "that guy," the former high school football star-type women still swoon over. It's hard to imagine Cooper not always being a Phil Wenneck, even in real life.
But Cooper is not "that guy." He's just good at acting like it. His earnest grilling of Sean Penn on "Inside the Actors Studio" when he was 23 proves that, as does "Silver Linings Playbook" and his feature-film debut: 2001's "Wet Hot American Summer."
"Whas," which has developed a rabid cult following in the decade since its release, starred numerous former members of the MTV sketch-comedy show "The State," as well as (then) young up-and-comers Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks and Judah Friedlander.
