VIDEO: Talking 'The Words' with Bradley Cooper and filmmaker friends

Bradley Cooper was surprised to see Howard Eskin at Fox 29 when the Rydal-raised actor stopped by "Good Day" Tuesday to promote "The Words."

Cooper told Eskin, who starts on air as sports anchor at Fox 29 Sept. 4, that he grew up listening to his WIP radio show.

The actor rode his Ducati motorcycle into town Monday afternoon from his mother Gloria's home in Rydal. 

Mom was in the house Monday night at the Prince Music Theater, where the Philadelphia Film Society hosted a premiere screening of "The Words," which opens in theaters Sept. 7.

Cooper's childhood pals Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal co-wrote and co-directed the film.
