Cooper has been Oscar-nominated for his performance in American Sniper, but which of his other film roles do you consider to be his best?
It isn’t always easy to make the jump from uproarious satire to brow-furrowing Oscar material – but try telling that to Bradley Cooper. He went from a gloriously camp debut in cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer to picking up a third Academy award nod yesterday for his lead role in American Sniper, Clint Eastwood’s factually dubious account of US Navy Seal Chris Kyle, a sharp-shooter who was given 160 confirmed kills over four tours in Iraq.
With American Sniper coming out this weekend in the UK, on 22 January in Australia and already showing in US cinemas, we’re looking back at Cooper’s best performances. Though he is still relatively early on in his film career, it holds some gems. Let us know which roles you would add, in the comments section.
Residents of sub-county in rural Uganda will use new deposit fund to bolster enterprise and protect fragile development gains
Training in financial management and marketing, the appointment of two new staff members and the start of negotiations for a new business contract. One year on, villagers in Katine, a rural sub-county in north-east Uganda, are preparing to manage a new pot of cash that will help transform their lives.
About £60,000 has been deposited into an account at a branch of Centenary Bank in nearby Soroti town. The account will give villagers access to a pool of money that can be borrowed – at a small rate of interest – to expand or develop business ideas, and provide a crucial safety net when problems arise.
Alexa Chung has collaborated with AG Denim on a new denim range – giving us a lot of ideas on how to wear it. Here are six rules to follow
Alexa Chung’s denim range for AG launches today! It has been preceded by the usual amount of hysteria that comes with anything Ms Chung puts her hand to and our now familiar hankering to dress like her. We have studied the collection at length, cast our eye over the denim-clad revellers at the launch party on Thursday night, and come up with five rules to wearing denim à la Alexa Chung.
Certain works of fiction have so many memorable lines that they’ve entered everyday language. Alex Clark picks her favourites
Have we missed a novel from the list? Leave your suggestion in the comments below and it could feature in the alternative list next week
The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman
Laurence Sterne, 1759-67
The FBI is stepping up efforts against international corruption, creating new squads to search for bribery cases rooted overseas that reach to the US
The FBI is stepping up efforts against international corruption, creating new squads to search for bribery cases that are rooted overseas but reach to the United States, law enforcement officials said.
The three squads, based in the FBI’s largest field offices, will concentrate on a key priority the justice department set over the past decade. Under the new initiative, roughly 30 agents will be assigned to squads based in New York, Washington and Los Angeles, said Jeffrey Sallet, chief of the FBI’s public corruption and civil rights section, in an interview.
Kim Fowley, who has died aged 75, was calculating and cynical – but still helped make an outrageous amount of great music
You don’t have to look far into Kim Fowley’s background to work out how he turned out the way he did: a serial, mercurial opportunist who worked with everyone from Berry Gordy to GG Allin; an often brilliant, occasionally appalling figure whose view of rock music was shot through with a cynicism that set him at odds with the 60s counterculture, but made perfect sense in the glam and punk eras. “I don’t understand how he continues to earn a living, but he does,” complained the rock critic Robert Christgau, who would have been less puzzled about Fowley’s survival instinct if he’d examined the man’s childhood.
On the face of it, the new political year kicked off with the same tune with which 2014 ended, but amidst the noise there are a few signals favourable to Labour
On the face of it, the new political year kicked off with the same tune on which 2014 faded out. The Conservatives took to the road to convince voters that Britain needed to stay on the path to a stronger economy, Labour meanwhile called on voters to help defend the NHS from the Tories.
But under the surface of Twitter spats between the two main parties’ press accounts, and a raging debate about debates, early indications are that Labour has had a better start to 2015 than the Conservatives.

On the day another cartoonist victim was buried at Père Lachaise cemetery, the pope came as near as dammit to suggesting that Charlie Hebdo had it coming. “One cannot provoke; one cannot insult other people’s faith; one cannot make fun of faith,” he said.
Oh yes, you can. You may not choose to. It may not be wise or polite or kind – but you can. And to show you can, without being gunned down, Charlie Hebdo has just gone on sale in the UK, in bolder outlets, proudly defiant with an image of Muhammad on the cover – though with a tear and a kindly thought: “All is forgiven.”
Elon Musk’s released pictures of his Falcon 9 rocket’s failed landing - and used a wonderful euphemism for it
Private spaceflight company SpaceX has released new pictures of its Falcon 9 rocket attempting to land on a floating platform in the Gulf of Mexico before undergoing what its chief executive, Elon Musk, euphemistically referred to as “RUD” – that’s “Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly”.
In other words, it blew up.
It’s almost 70 years since the Office of National Statistics first started recording the prices of everyday items to calculate inflation. But a look at their lists is a fascinating glimpse of social changes too
Do you remember when you stopped buying chicken kievs? Or when you started buying cereal bars? While we might have an eye on the cost of things in our baskets, few of us stop to consider how what we buy has changed over the past seven decades. But change it has. In 1947, the Office of National Statistics began recording the prices of an average basket of the everyday items consumers might buy, to help calculate a key measure of inflation, the consumer price index. On that first list were items such as wild rabbit, tins of corned beef and condensed milk, things few of us buy today.
Each year, the list is updated and new products are added, while others are quietly dropped. Looking at these imaginary shopping baskets over the past 70-odd years reveals the changing shopping and eating habits of postwar Britain - the products we have always adored, and those we left behind. What’s driven this are massive social and technological developments that changed what we ate, and how we shopped.
A quarter of Scotland’s 16 and 17-year-olds have joined a political party since the independence referendum, while two-thirds have been inspired by the campaign to find out more about politics, according to a poll.
The majority of first-time voters who took part in the online survey, conducted by the Scottish parliament’s devolution committee, said they wanted to be involved in future UK, Holyrood and council elections. Under-18s will be given the vote in next year’s Scottish parliamentary elections, following recommendations by the Smith commission.
Arsène Wenger says he would refuse to vote in the Ballon d’Or as he disagrees fundamentally with the premise of the award. Cristiano Ronaldo has been in the headlines this week after he was crowned as the world’s best player for the second year in succession. The Real Madrid forward beat his great rival, Lionel Messi of Barcelona, to the prize.
Wenger, though, has given short shrift to the honour. The Arsenal manager is not allowed to vote as only national team managers have the right, together with national team captains and selected journalists. But he said that he would not want to.
In Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the crew of the Nautilus takes a break from going for swims and pissing off native islanders to admire an armada of strange beasts floating along the surface, swimming backwards by blasting water out of their bodies. “Six of their eight tentacles were long, thin, and floated on the water, while the other two were rounded into palms and spread to the wind like light sails,” notes our trusty narrator. It’s an actual animal, alright, a rare and bizarre octopus that swims the open ocean: the argonaut. But those arms are no sails.

Michel Houellebecq’s controversial new novel Soumission, in which France is governed by the “Muslim Fraternity” party, has shot to the top of the country’s bestseller lists with a first-week sale of more than 100,000 copies.
Published on 7 January – the day masked gunmen broke into the offices of the magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 – Soumission (Submission) sold 120,000 copies in just five days last week, according to French trade magazine Livres Hebdo, putting it at the top of France’s book charts. There are 220,000 copies of the novel in print, according to Livres Hebdo, with the Bookseller also reporting “huge demand” for books of Charlie Hebdo cartoons and titles by the magazine’s cartoonists.
In 2010 Patriarch Kirill, the Russian Orthodox bishop of Moscow, announced controversial plans to build 200 new churches in the capital’s suburbs in 10 years. So far, 18 have been built and 18 more are under construction. But many Moscovites see the project as unwelcome ideological expansion, especially as existing churches struggle to attract congregations. Russian photographer Ivan Mikhailov captured some of the striking, if sometimes controversial, landmarks for The Calvert Journal
Our current legal system discourages people from taking full responsibility for their actions and their consequences
In November 2011, a group of young men allegedly raped a very drunk fifteen-year-old, snapped a photo, and circulated it, kicking off bullying that preceeded the girl’s suicide. On Thursday, one of them was sentenced to twelve months of probation and a mental health assessment. Whether or not this was an appropriate sentence – he was not on trial for rape, but for distributing a nude photo of a teenager – it’s not sufficient to make this young man take responsibility for what he did, or to discourage a repeat performance. Why don’t sentences for accused sex offenders teach them to treat women like people?
In 2011, 15-year-old Rehtaeh Parsons attended a small party, she drank too much and began vomiting. While she was incapacitated, four boys allegedly assaulted her. One boy took a picture of another giving a thumbs-up sign while allegedly raping her as she vomited, and the boys circulated the photo around their high school. Instead of being horrified at the boys’ actions, Parsons’s classmates began bullying her and calling her a slut. Outside of school, strangers texted her and messaged her on Facebook asking for sex – after all, they said, she had already had sex with their friends.
The Oscar-nominated film about a tyrannical music teacher and his star pupil is out of sync with reality, says Ladytron’s touring drummer
Billy Brown has been the touring drummer with Ladytron since 2008. He’s currently studying for his Masters in jazz performance at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance. He blogs at curranceevans.wordpress.com.
“There are purists who think there’s only one way to play jazz. None of them are as militant as Whiplash’s tyrannical band leader, Terence Fletcher, though. There is, however, a nagging familiarity to him. He’s the neurotic voice of doubt present in all of us when we perform. A lot of the teachers we have are successful musicians to begin with. You don’t get successful by being an arse.
