Philip Seymour Hoffman's Son Cooper Cast as Lead in Paul Thomas Anderson Movie

Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s son Cooper Hoffman will be making his acting debut!

The 17-year-old son of the late Oscar winner has been cast as the lead in the upcoming movie from director Paul Thomas Anderson, THR reports.

As of right now, very little is known about the movie except that it is set in LA’s San Fernando Valley in the 1970s and centers on a high school student who is also a child actor.

Cooper joins Bradley Cooper, singer-songwriter Alana Haim, and Bennie Safdie in the movie.

Over the weekend, Bradley was spotted covered in fake blood while filming a scene for the untitled movie.

Paul and Philip were longtime collaborators, working together on Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, Punch Drunk Love, Magnolia, and The Master.

Cooper‘s dad Philip died in 2014 of an accidental drug overdose.
