Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis & Ed Helms in Warner Bros. Pictures' 'The Hangover Part III'Spending the day watching Bradley Cooper roll around with an animatronic rooster can only mean one thing: another "Hangover."
As we watched, and cameras rolled for the better part of a full work day, Cooper wrestled said rooster, avoided a slew of actual chickens, and took more falls than a professional wrestler, even cracking his head good once or twice. All in a day's work on "The Hangover Part III" set.
Cooper (who plays Phil), wasn't the only forgetful "Hangover" vet we found clucking it up on Todd Phillips' set, which we visited late last year on day 42 of a 60 day shoot. Joining Cooper on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, California were fellow Wolf Packers Zach Galifianakis (Alan) and Ed Helms (Stu), as well as the biggest trouble-maker of them all, Ken Jeong (Chow). The scene in question takes place two years after "Hangover 2," at Chow's flophouse in Tijuana, where the nefariously naked criminal has gotten into cockfighting.
As Phillips caught the scene from every possible angle, we caught up with the Wolf Packers, Jeong, screenwriter Craig Mazin, and even the busy director himself. The tight-knit group took some time out to answer our questions (as well as those from a few other select media outlets) and gave us, and consequently you, an awfully good feel for what to expect from the third installment of the blockbuster comedy franchise. Here's a hint: "a descent into madness."
