Bradley Cooper as Adam Jones Adam Jones is back. After the bad boy of the Parisian dining scene had a spectacular meltdown that raised the eyebrows of the city's culinary elite, he retreated to the American South where, according to some accounts, he spent time shucking oysters and getting back to his culinary roots. Now in London, the two-star Michelin chef has his sights set on rebuilding his reputation with the debut of Adam Jones at the Langham and earning the third Michelin star that has eluded him for so long.
Bradley Cooper is an actor who has delivered some of the most memorable film performances of the last decade. Cooper gained worldwide recognition for his role in the Hangover trilogy, which grossed more than $1.4 billion globally, and received Academy Award® nominations for his performances in Silver Linings Playbook (2012), American Hustle (2013), and American Sniper (2014).
Sienna Miller as Helene Sweeney As one of the top sous chefs in London, Helene Sweeney is used to the intensity and drama that comes with working in the kitchens of the world's best restaurants. But perhaps nothing can prepare her for the challenge of working with Adam Jones, a temperamental chef whose outrageous behavior and spectacular culinary talents have earned him equal attention. When Jones decides he needs Helene’s help in earning his third Michelin star, it becomes clear the kitchen isn’t big enough for the both of them — or is it?
Born in New York, Sienna Miller was educated in England and then studied drama at the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York. She first gained the attention of critics and audiences when she played the love interest of Daniel Craig’s character in Matthew Vaughn’s Layer Cake, earning an Empire Award® nomination for Best Newcomer. Miller’s film credits also include Foxcatcher, American Sniper, Factory Girl, Casanova, and GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra, which was a huge international box office hit in 2009 and for which she was named Supporting Actress of the Year at NATO’s CinemaCon®.
Omar Sy as Michel Diome Michel Diome was Adam Jones’s partner in crime during the latter's well-documented reign as king of the Parisian dining scene — but a series of betrayals caused a rift in the two men's friendship that most thought could never be repaired. However, Michel and Jones are about to prove everyone wrong by coming together to launch Adam Jones at the Langham.
Omar Sy's breakout role came in 2011 with The Intouchables, a blockbuster French comedy-drama that earned him a César Award® for Best Actor. Since then, Sy has appeared in a number of films both in France and America, including X-Men: Days of Future Past and Jurassic World.
Daniel Brühl as Tony Balerdi As the manager at the Langham, Tony Balerdi is behind one of the most memorable dining experiences in all of London. When his old friend Adam Jones appears out of the blue and offers to turn the Langham into a world-class dining establishment, he's torn between his desire to be part of a culinary revolution and his distrust of the erratic and sometimes manipulative Adam Jones.
Born in Barcelona, Spain, actor Daniel Brühl's breakout role came in 2003 in the critically-acclaimed German film Good Bye, Lenin!, which earned him the European Film Award® for Best Actor and the German Film Award® for Best Actor. American audiences first saw him in 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum. Brühl went on to star in several more American films, including Inglourious Basterds, Rush, The Fifth Estate, and A Most Wanted Man. He will appear as the villainous Baron Zemo in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War.
Uma Thurman as Simone Forth Simone Forth is one of the most powerful restaurant critics in London, if not the world, so of course she is familiar with Adam Jones, one of Europe's most notable (and notorious) chefs. Jones's success depends on showing her that he is not only a changed man, but a changed chef, one who can push the boundaries of cooking to become a three-star Michelin chef.
Uma Thurman was born in Boston, Massachusetts, to Nena Thurman, a fashion model and socialite, and Robert Thurman, one of the nation's preeminent Buddhist scholars. At the age of 15, she moved to New York to pursue modeling and acting. In 1998, she landed roles in two films — Terry Gilliam's The Adventures of Baron Munchausen and Stephan Frears Dangerous Liaisons — that earned her widespread attention and interest. But it was her 1994 performance in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction that catapulted her to superstardom. Since then, Thurman has starred in a long line of critically and commercially successful films, including Beautiful Girls, Gattaca, Tarantino's Kill Bill Volumes 1 & 2, The Truth About Cats and Dogs, and Woody Allen's Sweet and Lowdown.
Emma Thompson as Dr. Hilda Rosshilde Renowned psychiatrist Dr. Hilda Rosshilde has helped movie stars, pop icons, and politicians achieve and maintain sobriety—but nothing in her past can prepare her for chef Adam Jones. With Dr. Rosshilde's help, Adam Jones must stay sober and focused as he opens his new restaurant and begins his quest for that elusive third Michelin star. Emma Thompson first found success on the stage and British television, including a regular role on the sketch comedy show Alfresco with Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, and a leading role in the revival of the 1930s musical Me and My Girl. After starring in the BBC miniseries Fortunes of War, Thompson's attention turned to film roles, which included Henry V, Dead Again, and Howards End, for which she won the award for Best Actress at the 65th Academy Award®s. Since then, she has appeared in dozens of high-profile projects, including The Remains of the Day, Sense and Sensibility (for which she won the Academy Award® for Best Adapted Screenplay) Saving Mr. Banks, the Harry Potter series, Love Actually, and the HBO miniseries Angels in America. Matthew Rhys as Montgomery Reece Montgomery Reece is one of Europe’s most experimental and beloved chefs. His eponymous restaurant is known for consistently pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the kitchen and has earned him three Michelin stars. When his longtime rival Adam Jones returns to town, Reece must prepare for an all out war in which the victor will be named the king of the London dining scene.
Born and raised in the historic city of Cardiff, South Wales, Matthew Rhys has solidified his place in the industry with his acclaimed performances on television, film, and the stage.
