Jones to star with Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper will work with David O Russell again on American Hustle

Jack Jones is set to star alongside Bradley Cooper in political thriller American Hustle.

The 60s crooner last appeared in a movie in 1982's Airplane II: The Sequel, but is now signed up to the Sony film, said Variety.

He will join a big name cast including Bradley, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner.

Wives And Lovers singer Jack, 75, will finish shooting his part before he starts a month-long concert tour of the UK in May and June.

American Hustle, originally titled American Bulls***, is about Abscam, the FBI sting operation involving a fictional Middle East sheikh that lead to the 1981 convictions of a US Senator and five members of the US Congress for accepting bribes.

Directed by David O Russell, it is currently filming in Boston and will be released in December.

Scenes from the film were shown to audiences at CinemaCon in Las Vegas this week.

Jack's latest album is called Love Ballad, which he will be promoting on his UK tour.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
