Arguments for:
-It’s been a good year professionally. Limitless did well. The Hangover 2 did very well.
-He’s American
-He’s now single having (strategically) split from Renee Zellweger who wouldn’t have been very popular with the MiniVan Majority as a girlfriend
-JLo was dealing with him for about 5 minutes
-He would want it. Or, his people would want it for him. I don’t know that Limitless was proof that Coop can open alone. They need to market him a lot stronger.

Arguments against:
-Coop’s got nothing going on right now. He’s filming. They’re not pushing for anything immediate.
-JLo dealt with him for about 5 minutes, and then moved on to a backup dancer. Most of that is on her, but some members of the MiniVan Majority have got to be like - what’s wrong with this dude?
-And that’s what it is: something’s missing when it comes to Coop. He’s an Almost. But not quite. I can’t put it into words, but it’s not there, I know you know this.
-His people would want it for him. And would HE want it for him? I think this is what Coop struggles with: wanting to be a big bad Movie Star and hating the sh-t that comes with becoming a Big Bad Movie Star. Maybe that’s what the problem is - he’s not fully committed to the Life, you know? And you can smell it on him.

Odds: 17 to 1
