First Look: David O. Russell’s American Hustle with Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Bradley CooperChristian Bale stars as Irving Rosenfeld, a brilliant Bronx con-man whose specialization in stolen art catches the attention of unhinged FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). (Those tight curls are “not a perm, just for the record,” says Russell, noting Cooper’s character emulates a style popularized by ’70s professional baseball players.)
DiMaso forces Irving and his British lover/accomplice Sydney (Amy Adams) into a web of New Jersey power brokers and the Mafia. Lawrence is on hand as Irving’s loose cannon of a Long Island house wife, Rosalyn, who threatens the entire operation. “Everybody gets to do something we’ve never seen before,” says Russell. “That’s exciting to me.”
New to Russell’s orbit is Jeremy Renner as Carmine Polito, a volatile New Jersey mayor keeping his community afloat in the midst of a recession. “That era was very much like our era now,” says Russell. “The economy was not in a good place and people had to struggle to figure out how to reinvent themselves.”
