Bradley Cooper to Recur on Upcoming CBS 'Limitless' Series

Bradley Cooper is headed to television!

According to Deadline, the 40-year-old movie star will have a recurring role on the upcoming TV show adaptation of his movie Limitless, which he is also producing for CBS.

He will reportedly play a sidekick to the character he played in the 2011 film, who is now portrayed by Jake McDorman. Bradley appears in the pilot and will guest star as much as his schedule permits.

Limitless is a fast-paced drama about Brian Finch (McDorman), who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT and is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them. Working closely with Brian in the major case squad in New York City is Special Agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter), a formidable investigator with a dark past, and Special Agent Boyle (Hill Harper), a former military officer and Rebecca’s confidante.

They report to Special Agent in Charge Nasreen “Naz” Pouran (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), a canny manipulator of the reins of power. Unbeknownst to the FBI, Brian also has a clandestine relationship with Senator Edward Mora (Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper, recurring), a presidential hopeful and regular user of NZT who has plans of his own for his new protégé. Fueled now with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Brian is more effective than all of the FBI agents combined, making him a criminal’s worst nightmare and the greatest asset the Bureau has ever possessed.

    I didn’t realize the Outer Critics Circle awards were already announced. I just assumed the awards would be announced at the reception on May 21st. Unfortunately, The Elephant Man didn’t win anything.

    That part at the end where he looks orgasmic while eating ice cream is priceless.

    Have you seen the stills? LOLOLOLOL

  • Jamie

    No awards for ‘The Elephant Man’ at the Drama League awards today either. I don’t know if the lack of Outer Critics Circle and Drama League awards really matters when it comes to the Tonys, though.

  • Colette

    I don’t think it affects the Tonys. I personally don’t think he or Elephant Man are going to win.

    How’s everyone over here? There was no electrical engineer…ok there was but he lied to me and got blocked.

    My mind is racing and I can’t wind down…lol

  • Bradllifer

    She is not sucky. She has a Life off her own. She won’t run after bradley begging for attention. She will maybe be back in London for his premier at west end.

  • DM

    couple in love want to be together
    all the time

  • DM

    or she dont want to be with daddy

  • Bradllifer

    Lol!!! She has a job you know a life….and obviously every couple wanna be together always but sometimes you can’t. It is called grown up life and it is also called grown up relationship….

  • Bradllifer

    Or you just wanna find some reason to hate on irina and bradley the way you hated on sucky,

  • DM

    dont hate child or irina
    daddy relationship are fake

  • Dolly

    Come again? Did your meds get cut off?

  • https://twitter.com/pamela_swain Pamela

    Nope, just got the info I needed. You shouldn’t believe everything professional liars tell you.

  • Becca

    Finally Bradley and Emma are promoting Aloha… but seriously what’s happen with his clothes? awful jackets!

  • Becca

    well, her love is in her bank account….. PDA pics paid good cash

  • Becca

    I agree with you on this…. IS is much more crafty than SW. She will not fall into the same error

  • Becca

    I don’t like without his beard

  • Bradllifer

    Lol!!!!! Yeah if she wanted money she would have stayed with cris. She loves bradley.

  • Jamie

    It looks like he’s wearing a sporty jacket with dress trousers at the screening.

  • Dolly
  • Dolly

    I’ve seen worse. Curious to see how he will dress now that he’s no longer with a 22 year old. He was going a little too hipster for a while there.

  • Dolly
  • Becca

    I think those are two different jackets: blue and brown but both are terrible… Even Emma changed her costumes for the photocall

  • Becca

    The problem is that she has not found the perfect style for Bradley…. The same clothes looks good on other actors

  • Becca

    and the brown old boots that I hate

  • Becca

    She wanted to stay with CR7 but he dumped her so……. no more money from CR7, oh Hi Bradley! lol

  • Jamie

    Maybe he styled himself for these two events. These outfits don’t really look like something that a stylist would put together.

  • Jamie

    I thought she dumped him because he was cheating.

  • Bradllifer

    NO she left him he was beging her to stay

  • Bradllifer

    He cheated he behaved bad and he was selfish she stayed until she had it.

  • DM
  • DM

    he cheated because she is vain girl

  • DM

  • DM

    I just checked The EM London ticketing page. Sold out for the first show tomorrow.

  • DM

    poor child
    all because of leo

    Bradley loves models, and they love him.
    He has insane chemistry with Irina. He’s never been so physically attracted to a woman.
    The couple were introduced by mutual friend Leonardo DiCaprio shortly after Bradley split from Suki.

  • Jamie

    Suki was photographed sitting on the lap of a Chippendales dancer in Vegas and that didn’t seem to affect their relationship. I doubt that this photo of Irina would. LOL

  • Jamie

    Life & Style and Star are not legit sources of info. And, do Irina and Leo even know each other? I think it’s more likely that his trainer set them up since he’s worked with both of them.

  • Jamie
  • Dolly

    I was just about to post that link. He really put his body through the wringer for The EM. When I saw it in NY I was amazed that he was able to contort like that thru a whole show.
