Well it’s about damn time Bradley Cooper got some respect. I mean what does a guy have to do, have an impressive body of work that includes action, comedy and romance roles? Oh wait, that’s right. He’s done that already. Does he have to host Saturday Night Live to get any props? Well what do you know? He’s done that as well. I guess all that’s left is to get the word out there that this Bradley Cooper fella is more than just One2Watch4, he’s one you’re going to remember.
I think a majority of you are going to recognize Bradley from his TV roles, in particular his work on the popular “Alias.” He starred as a reformed celebrity chef in the short-lived Fox series “Kitchen Confidential” (along side fellow ones2watch4 alum John Cho) and recently was a hysterical night-time soap actor with questionable motives on “Nip/Tuck”. Slowly and steadily Cooper has been racking up the parts in films, mostly co-starring with bigger marquee names like Jim Carey (Yes Man, 2008) and Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn (The Wedding Crashers, 2005).
2009 is starting of well for the Philadelphia native. First we had the ensemble romantic comedy He’s Just Not That Into You and up next the comedy The Hangover (opens June 5, North America). From what I’m hearing The Hangover just may be the sleeper comedy hit of the summer. But wait it doesn’t stop there. Bradley is in the supernatural thriller Case 39 with Renée Zellweger and the object of Sandra Bullock’s desire in All About Steve. The one that’s got me very excited is the big-screen version of The A-Team, with Bradley as “Face”. Talk about perfect casting! And then there’s that rumor about his being The Green Lantern. If there is any justice all the fine work Bradley has done before will add up to this star-making role. Seriously, what more does a guy have to do?
