Cooper Nearly Rejected Mamma Mia! Role
British actor DOMINIC COOPER almost rejected a role in movie musical MAMMA MIA! until he realised his big-name co-stars were just as clumsy as him.
The 30-year-old star plays Sky in the film adaptation of the hit Abba-inspired musical - and admits he had to be convinced by his agent to accept the over-the-top role.
He says, "All I could think was, `How much spandex and ladies' platforms (shoes) will this involve?'"
But Cooper's fears were soon quelled after he found himself surrounded by the all-star cast - including Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth - and realised he wasn't the only one who was rhythmically-challenged.
He says, "Let me tell you, Meryl's Greek step was not up to scratch, and Pierce Brosnan showed up in loafers on the first day.
"Everyone had two left feet, so we ended up just laughing at each other."
