News comes from a Cannes interview that Cooper, star of "Mama Mia!" and "An Education," will join the ensemble playing a young version of Captain America's father -- who will age into "Mad Men's" silver fox John Slattery

Cooper will join Evans' love interest Hayley Atwell, Samuel L. Jackson and Hugo Weaving in the film, slated for a 2011 release.

The London native is currently on a break from his real-life leading lady, Amanda Seyfried. How nice, he's keeping busy with work.
