He played one on the big screen, but Bradley Cooper's real-life Eagles fanship is no impersonation. He's a Philly football fan who takes the team's successes and failures personally.
Cooper also isn't afraid to align himself along NFC East divisional lines. The Eagles organization has been going back-and-forth with the Giants all week long leading up to Sunday night's key game between the two division foes, and Cooper's appearance in a new hype video is the latest highlight of that heated relationship.
Cooper, who fakes a decent New York accent in mocking the Giants, takes several shots at the Eagles' rivals while emphasizing the importance of the game.
"This is more than a midseason matchup," Cooper says. "This is a street fight -- Wall Street against Broad Street."
Later, Cooper offers some reflection on how Eagles fans should handle New Yorkers.
"You want to know the best way to shut a loudmouth up?" he says. "Is to shut it for them."
This is the second time Cooper has appeared in an Eagles promotional video this season. After playing an Eagles fan in the award-winning sports drama, "Silver Linings Playbook," he's often associated with the franchise.
It's an association he relishes in real life. It's hard to see Eagles fans needing extra incentive to get riled up, but the video does give the game some added gravitas.
Here's another video featuring Cooper from earlier in the season.
