Luke (Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling) is in constant motion, a high-wire motorcycle stunt performer who travels from town to town with the carnival. Passing through Schenectady in upstate New York, he tries to reconnect with a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), only to learn that she has in his absence given birth to their son Jason. Luke resolves to forsake life on the road and to provide for his newfound family, taking a job as car mechanic with Robin (Ben Mendelsohn). Robin soon discovers Luke’s special talents, and proposes to partner with him in a string of spectacular bank robberies. But it is only a matter of time before Luke will run up against the law – which comes in the form of Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper).
Avery is an ambitious rookie cop navigating a local police department ruled by the menacingly corrupt detective Deluca (Ray Liotta). When Avery, just beginning to balance his profession and his family life with wife Jennifer (Rose Byrne) and their infant son AJ, confronts Luke, the full consequences will reverberate into the next generation. It is then that the two sons, Jason (Dane DeHaan) and AJ (Emory Cohen), must face their fateful, shared legacy.

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?
