In the new trailer for the drama, Cooper plays Adam Jones, a bad-boy chef with two Michelin stars. His temper and drug problem cause him to lose everything, but now he's back to open his own restaurant, get that third Michelin star, and gain the glory he's sought his entire life.
"The kitchen's the only place I've ever felt like I belonged," he says. "I love every minute of it — the heat, the pressure, the violence."
The story sounds a lot like that of Anthony Bourdain, one-time bad-boy chef who wrote about his experiences in a book called "Kitchen Confidential," that was then turned into a short-lived TV show of the same way. Which Cooper starred in. So, he had some experience for this movie.
"Burnt" also stars Sienna Miller, Matthew Rhys, Uma Thurman and Emma Thompson, and opens in theaters October 23.
