I just added a short clip of Bradley from his movie Case 39. Enjoy! :)
The wolf pack is just about ready to get a little bigger. According to Entertainment Weekly, writer/director Todd Phillips is halfway done with writing a follow-up to the highly successful THE HANGOVER, which has, so far, made over $459 million worldwide. That includes $277 million domestic, making it the highest grossing R-rated comedy in history.
Phillips explains to EW that plans for a sequel were already being bandied about while production on the first film was underway.
You always have those days when you say, ‘If we did another one, wouldn’t it be funny if…?’ Then once the movie tested so well, Warner Bros. came to me even before it was released and said, ‘Let’s do another one.
While plot points for the sequel are being kept close to Phillips’ chest, he does say the film, tentatively titled THE HANGOVER 2, will reunite the trio of Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, and Ed Helms. Phillips also says the new film won’t simply revisit the bachelor-party-gone-horribly-wrong scenario.
I think you can take those characters and put them in other situations, and you don’t need the sell of Vegas and a bachelor party and all that other stuff.
Phillips is currently shooting DUE DATE with Robert Downey Jr. Galifianakis, Jamie Foxx, and Michelle Monaghan.
What do you think? Does the thought of a sequel to THE HANGOVER entice you? Are you interested to see what craziness Phil, Alan, and Stu can get themselves into next? Why do they call them roofies? Shoot us an email below with your thoughts.
Bradley Cooper may have lost out on playing Green Lantern to Ryan Reynolds but he is stepping into another iconic hero role when he plays Lt. Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck in next summer’s big-screen remake of The A-Team.
If you recall the original 80s TV show, you’ll know Dirk Benedict played Faceman back then – and he will have a cameo in the new movie.
Meanwhile, Cooper, 34, was this year in hit comedy The Hangover, which comes out on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK on Monday, December 7.
And to mark the release, a Hangover-themed party bus is touring the UK searching for the wildest confession of a night out and the most outrageous city. The tour includes two stops in nearby Birmingham.
The Hangover Bus will be packed with hangover cures, from the usual classics like water and energy drinks to the more unusual and underrated. It will be looked after by what’s described as “sexy ladies giving out hangover kits which include Lynx goodies, an eye mask, toothbrush and toothpaste, mints, refreshing wipes and discount vouchers for the Blu-ray or DVD.”
For your chance to go into the interactive confessions booth and share your party stories, you can board the bus at the following locations on these dates:

The tour leads up to the DVD and Blu-ray hitting the shops and, to recap on what it’s all about, The Hangover follows four friends who embark on the ultimate stag party in the bright lights of Las Vegas – the so-called city of sin. Starring alongside Cooper are Ed Helms (The Office, Family Guy) Zach Galifinankis, (What Happened in Vegas) and Justin Bartha (The Rebound).
Doug (Bartha) embarks on his Las Vegas bachelor party with best buddies Stu (Helms), Phil (Cooper) and his slightly disturbed, soon-to-be, brother-in-law Alan (Galifinankis), but it all gets out of control and leads to a night they wish they could remember. Supporting cast members include Heather Graham (Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Boogie Nights) and the legendary Mike Tyson.
The Blu-ray features additional content not available on the standard DVD.
The DVD includes: theatrical version of the film; Map of Destruction (15min) where you can retrace every step the guys took during their fate-filled evening and see the real locations, learn about Las Vegas and see the filming that took place there; Three Best Friends Song (1min 52secs) – Cooper, Helms and Galifianakis freestyle their own song; and Gag Reel (8min 43secs).
The Blu-ray includes the theatrical version and an additional extended version, as well as a digital copy; Behind the Story picture-in-picture commentary on the theatrical version featuring Cooper, Galifianakis, Helms and director Todd Phillips; Map of Destruction; The Madness of Ken Jeong (7min 38secs) – Ken Jeong’s non-stop comedy improvisation; Action Mash-Up (30secs) – Compilation of all the physical comedy from the film; Three Best Friends Song; Gag Reel; More Pictures from the Missing Camera (100 Stills); BD-LIVE (Media Center, My Commentary & LCS); Exclusive Iron Mike Online Teaser (1min 40secs) – The Champs’ rendition of In the Air Tonight; Exclusive with The Dan Band (5min) – see and hear the extended cuts of two of the Dan Band performances at the wedding; Exclusive Cursing Mash-Up (51sec) – compilation of all the cursing from the film.
You would think at this point that Danny Boyle has the ability to get pretty much anything made, no matter who stars in it. Dev Patel and Slumdog, anyone? But when he was talking up a potential upcoming project to MTV last spring, he said the script for The Texas Killing Fields was “really special,” but “you’d have to have half a dozen super megastars for a studio to even consider making it.”
Now, apparently, there are two megastars attached, but Boyle is strangely no longer involved. According to Pajiba’s insider source The Hollywood Cog, Bradley Cooper and Sam Worthington will likely play the two lead cop characters, and Michael Mann’s daughter Ami, of all people, will be directing. They have no idea how the project came to the second-generation Mann, whose only significant directorial experience is as second-unit director on Heat, nor why Boyle bailed on it. The real question is how they managed to attach two very-in-demand actors on a project for a first-timer.
Really, the fact that Cooper and Worthington are the two names mentioned almost makes me believe this news can’t be true. They’re basically the two go-to “in demand these guys,” and you could only sound more zeitgeisty if you tossed in Zach Galifianakis as part of the package. Even if they really are attached, it’ll be ages before production can get going because of their commitments elsewhere. I’m dying for a real explanation of what’s going on here, but I think it’s just as likely for a flat denial instead.
GQ online has offered a sneak peak of its selections for Men of the Year before the magazines hit newsstands this week. The annual GQ Men of the Year awards gives GQ magazine’s 800,000 readers the chance to vote for the most influential figures in a variety of fields over the past year. Among the honorees this year are stage and stars Bradley Cooper and Chris Pine are included this year’s list.
President Barack Obama won in the “Leader of the Year,” Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms-the stars of The Hangover-are “Funnymen of the Year,” Chris Pine (who played Captain Kirk in the new Star Trek film) is “Breakout of the Year,” New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is “Comeback of the Year,” and Clint Eastwood won “Badass of the Year.”
Bradley Cooper has appeared on Broadway opposite Julia Roberts inThree Days of Rain and co-starred in The Williamstown TheatreFestival’s production of The Understudy. His The Hangover grossed $276 million at the box office. He has appeared in Alias alongside Jennifer Garner, in addition to the recent films Wedding Crashers and He’s Just Not That Into You.
Chris Pine, went from virtual unknown to international sensation for his portrayal as a young Captain Kirk in the newest Star Trek installment. He additionally starred in the Geffen Playhouse’s production of Farragut North and Off-Broadway in The Atheist.
It was recently announced that Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Alias, Midnight Meat Train) will be headlining Relativity Media and Rogue Picture’s thriller titled “Dark Fields”. Cooper has replaced “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf according to reports. The movie is based on a book of the same name by author Alan Glynn. Neil Burger will be directing the picture from a script written by Leslie Dixon (The Thomas Crown Affair). The premise is rather strange and I should be surprised that Bradley Cooper would headline a flick like this after moving to A-list status after the unexpected sucess of “The Hangover”. Then again, he did star in “Midnight Meat Train” thus anything’s possible. Read on to see what the movie is about.
cooperBased on Alan Glynn’s book, the story follows a down-and-out writer (Cooper) who gets his hands on a top-secret pharmaceutical drug that makes one smarter. He experiences sudden financial and social success but soon discovers that the drug has lethal and lasting side effects.
Before long, mysterious antagonists are pursuing him. Cooper replaces Shia LaBeouf who was originally attached to star.
We have no idea why LaBeouf backed out of the project, but we’re assuming it involved scheduling conflicts with his other projects.
You just can’t keep a good man down.
Coming off the huge success of ‘The Hangover,’ Bradley Cooper has signed on to star in the sci-fi suspense thriller ‘Dark Fields,’ according to a story in The Hollywood Reporter.
The story, from a 2002 novel by Alan Glynn, centers on a down-and-out New York writer who comes across a designer drug guaranteed to spike intelligence and personality. The pill makes him smarter and successful — he makes a killing in the stock market — but he begins to have horrible side effects: piercing headaches, intense bouts of rage and a “trip-switching” effect in which time begins to have a stop-motion quality.
Neil Burger, who helmed the exquisite ‘The Illusionist,’ will direct the film, which begins shooting next spring for a release by Universal.
Cooper, who has been hard at work on Garry Marshall’s ‘Valentine’s Day’ and Fox’s ‘The A-Team,’ replaces Shia LaBeouf, who was originally set to star in the project.
This outing sounds fascinating — particularly since it’s in the hands of the adept Burger — and it reminds us of some of the work of Philip K. Dick or J.G. Ballard. Let’s hope that the film lives up to its potential and doesn’t become a cinematic mess like ‘Jumper.’
Bradley Cooper has revealed that he only wanted to be in the upcoming A-Team film so that he could beat people up.
The actor, who stars as Face in the action movie, said that he wanted to play a character who gives out beatings as opposed to receiving them, like his Alias character Will Tippin.
Cooper is quoted by New York Magazine as saying: “In Alias, I wasn’t the action guy. I got the s**t beat out of me, got tortured a lot, lost teeth, became a heroin addict, and left after the second season. I was never on the giving end of it. But in The A-Team, I get that chance.”
Talking about how he got the job in the movie, he continued: “I heard they were doing it and decided that I had to be involved. I heard Liam Neeson was going to play Hannibal, and I was also huge fan of the old TV series.”
Cooper added: “I got a meeting with director Joe Carnahan about me playing Face. I got the script to read, called next morning and unabashedly w****d myself out as to how I have to play this role. I was lucky enough that he said ‘Let’s try it’.”
BRADLEY Cooper was shocked to find he had to follow a strict exercise and diet program for his role in the movie remake of the classic A-Team TV series.
The actor — who is currently dating Bridget Jones’s Diary star Renee Zellweger – plays Templeton “Face” Peck in the flick, which is due to hit theaters in June next year.
And Cooper admits he’s had a tough time getting himself into shape.
“I have been on this crazy getting-in-shape regimen,” he said. “It was a real shock to the system. No salt or sugar.
“I just eat what they put in front of me, but it’s a lot of like boiled chicken, and brown rice, and broccoli.”
Cooper, 34, recently admitted that he’s a hopeless romantic.
“The truth is, I got it first from my parents, who’ve been married since 1963. I got it from them and from my grandparents, who are still together,” he said.
“I grew up in a very old-fashioned Roman Catholic, Italian-Irish family in Philly. Now my parents have evolved into completely different creatures, in terms of their marriage and the roles of the man and the woman.
“And I think that’s great, but it’s still romantic.”
