Is Jennifer Lopez Gunning For An Oscar?

Mark Wahlberg says that Jennifer Lopez is dying for the lead role in the new flick ‘Cocaine Cowboys’ and he thinks it’ll bring an Oscar to anyone who lands the part.

Mark was on ‘Sway in the Morning’ explaining that he won’t announce yet who will be playing the role of ‘Godmother’ Griselda Blanco until the script is finalized.  The movie is about the drug trade that swept through southern Florida in the 1970s and 1980s.

“It’s one of those characters that will go down in history… If I could play Griselda, I would. That’s Academy Award (material) right there.”

Are you a fan of J.Lo’s movies and do you think she could be Oscar-worthy?  I’ve loved some of her comedies like ‘The Wedding Planner‘ and ‘Monster-in-Law‘.

Bradley Cooper replaces Mark Wahlberg in new movie because he costs less.

Bradley Cooper has replaced Mark Wahlberg in David O. Russell’s new movie “The Silver Linings Playbook”, because he costs less money.

This is shocking, considering Mark Wahlberg and David O. Russell worked together on “The Fighter”. Rumors have surfaced that the two are embroiled in a nasty fight.

After waiting years to bring the story of underdog Boston boxer Mickey Ward to theaters, Mark Wahlberg, stung by Darren Aronofsky’s departure, asked David O. Russell to helm the picture. The film would go on to garner a boatload of Oscar nominations, and prompted the two friends to develop more projects together. One of them, “The Silver Linings Playbook,” in which Wahlberg was set to star, recently underwent a sudden casting switch — leading to a major falling out between the two.

The Wrap reports that Russell decided to recast the film’s leading role, swapping Wahlberg for Bradley Cooper. At first it seemed as if it was an issue of timing — Wahlberg is very busy at the moment, as he is slated to film at least three new movies in the coming months — but it turns out it was a simple squabble over money. Cooper, it appears, would work more cheaply than Wahlberg, who was owed a $900,000 bonus because Anne Hathaway dropped out of the film (Jennifer Lawrence will replace her as a younger love interest).

Now, Cooper will take on the role of a man recently released from a mental health facility, looking to put back together his life. It’s caused a major rift between Wahlberg and Russell, who had previously made “Three Kings” and “I Heart Huckabees” together. What that means for the sequel to “The Fighter” remains to be seen.

Still, don’t fear, Wahlberg fans; there’s plenty of Marky Mark still on the horizon. He’ll soon star in “Contraband” with Kate Beckinsale, “Ted” with Mila Kunis, the drama “Billy Jack” and mob movie, “When Corruption Was King,” and the cop comedy, “Bait and Switch.”

Here are pictures of Bradley on the set of “The Silver Linings Playbook” in Pennsylvania.

PHOTOS: Mila Kunis and Mark Wahlberg tie the knot!

Actress Mila Kunis look stunning as she walked out of a church with her “groom” Mark Wahlberg in Boston, Massachusetts while filming their latest movie “Ted in Boston”.

Directed by “Family Guy” creator Seth McFarlane, the film tells the story of John (Wahlberg) a Boston native whose childhood wish comes true when his teddy bear (Ted) comes to life.

Really? Teddy bear comes to life? Hopefully it’s better than it sounds! I love Mark – so I have to have faith that he wouldn’t do a crappy movie (oh wait, he did ‘Other Guys’).
