Cooper has a Dinner With Herve?

Dominic Cooper is being linked to My Dinner With Herve

Dominic Cooper is in talks to join My Dinner With Herve, it's been claimed.

The British actor has been linked to a role in Sacha Gervasi's biopic, based on the last days of Herve Villechaize aka Tattoo, the famous dwarf on US TV series Fantasy Island before he committed suicide in 1993, said The Playlist.

The Daily Beast writer Sean Macaulay sparked the speculation when he tweeted: "Visited test shoot for Herve Villechaize biopic directed by Sacha Gervasi, starring Peter Dinklage & Dominic Cooper. Looks amazing."

James McAvoy and Ryan Gosling had previously considered the part in the drama, but it looks like Dominic has nabbed the role of the Anvil! director, while Peter has long been attached to the title role.

Sacha was the last journalist to interview Herve for a magazine profile piece, but a few days after their meeting, the actor decided to kill himself.

Dominic will next appear in Captain America: The First Avenger, The Devil's Double and My Week With Marilyn.

Production on My Dinner With Herve, penned by Steven Zaillian, is expected to start in 2012.

There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
