The stars have all come out at the Toronto Film Festival, and as usual we’re learning so much about them. Bradley Cooper admitted this week that he is a fan of a series you may not have guessed. Cooper is at TIFF promoting his new film, The Silver Linings Playbook, which co-stars Jennifer Lawrence of The Hunger Games.

Cooper and Lawrence were being interviewed by MTV News when he shared a secret with Lawrence.

“I just saw it,” Cooper told Lawrence in the interview, speaking about her other movie. “I didn’t even tell you? I didn’t text you?”

According to MTV, the actress looked surprised. Cooper continued by saying how excited he is about the new casting choices for the next film in the series.

Philip Seymour Hoffman is in this,” he said. “He’s unbelievable.”

Besides Hoffman’s addition to the series, Sam Claflin was announced as playing Finnick in the story. Lawrence seemed very excited over the choice.

“He’s wonderful,” she told MTV. “He’s really sweet, a great, wonderful actor. He’s got a great American accent.”

Cooper shared that he was upset about one event in the first film: “I’m bummed out that Wes Bentley got killed. He was awesome.”

But he was corrected by MTV’s Josh Horowitz, who said it’s possible he’s still alive. And Lawrence explained, “It’s kind of like a Tupac situation.”

While there are still parts to cast, Cooper made no mention of wanting to actually be in the movies. But since he is such a big fan, it’s always a possibility. Fans will have to wait a little longer for the next film. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is not set to be released until Nov. 22, 2013, followed by the next two films on Nov. 21, 2014, and Nov. 20, 2015.

The Silver Linings Playbook will hit theaters Nov. 21 of this year.
