Bradley Cooper gets serious to star with Ryan Gosling

Jun. 2, 2011by: Mike Sampson

Like it or not, Bradley Cooper is pretty much an A-list star at this point. He opened a movie that had no business succeeding - LIMITLESS - to $143 million worldwide. And then came THE HANGOVER, PART II, which made Warner Bros. a shitload of cash and will make Cooper a shitload of cash for the inevitable HANGOVER, PART III. He also gets his pick of the litter when it comes to upcoming projects. And he's decided to ditch the comedy game for a bit to try something more serious.

Cooper has signed a deal to co-star with Ryan Gosling in THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES, the follow-up film from BLUE VALENTINE director Derek Cianfrance.

Cooper will play a a cop tracking down a motorcycle rider (Gosling) who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son (doesn't this sound remarkably similar to DRIVE wherein Gosling plays a car driver who turns to bank robberies?).

The film is being set up and financed independently through Sidney Kimmel Entertainment and Cooper and Gosling will film this summer in Schenectady, New York. (That's a sentence I never thought I'd type...)

Extra Tidbit: Who knew Cooper could speak such fluent French?

Why the hate?

I like Cooper. He's definitely deserving of his latent success in the hollywood. I also thought limitless was a pretty good movie. I don't see how it had no business succeeding the way it did.

I think people

may get him confused with the smug asshole he's played well. I haven't been blown away by anything he's done - but I don't have a problem with the guy being allowed to prove himself.

Nor do I, good sir. Oh sweet fellow of my fantasy loins, please remove that hat and shave that mustache before I become so overwhelmed with moisture that I faint and fall into a public pool from a 10 story building in Utah. It is not my wish to be given mouth to mouth by a Mormon.

Very likeable actor

Cooper was great in Limitless, easily one of the most entertaining films I've seen this year.

Cooper teaming up with Gosling sounds like an excellent idea

Sounds great. Gosling and Cooper are both great actors who make any character theirs.

And if this is anything like Blue Valentine, it'll be great.

Is it weird that every time I see that avatar of yours, I imagine you marching around outside in the rain in nothing but a pair of rain boots while singing "Rosenrot" by Rammstein? That image then evokes a murderous rage in me that causes me to imagine you being hit over the head with a hammer and thrown into a massive pool of whipped cream and chocolate syrup with pretty little sprinkles on top.

He deserves his success. If you look him up he respects and studies film. Hes also a nice humble guy... Acting wise, like another person says he hasn't blown me away but he hasn't turned me away either.

Bradley Cooper is awesome. I'm glad he's an A-list star now, because he's a very good actor.

Bradley Cooper rocks! He's extremely talented and I think his best work is on the horizon. I'm down.

Similar to The Soloist's unnatural love of Stallone, I find myself remarkably drawn to him. Especially that sweet avatar you've got. Something about his hat and necklace makes me so moist! It's like a Duncan Hines yellow cake with chocolate frosting! MMM MMM GOOD!

He was in the A-Team. Still crying in your beer, huh? Poor little baby. If you can't handle someone questioning your criteria for a blanket statement, you'd better go crawl in a hole somewhere kid.

It would be great to see him in something team action oriented like The A-Team and/or The Expandables.

Sounds cool

I'll watch anything with cooper, gosling (gosling is an awesome actor too. Also very under looked) And blue valentine is an amazing film. To me it's highly underated. Not many people talk of it. It features amazing acting, and it's a very awesome character piece. Makes you never want to get married but hey that's life. And if you all say gosling can't act for shit. Watch blue valentine, he is fuckin amazing in it. :)

I love me some Bradly Cooper. The Soloist is a homosexual and he has been making advances toward me. Beware, my friends, for this fairy bends men over and pretends that it's okay and then sends his pinky-sized friend into the fudge factory, so make amends with your friends and get some extenze and annihilate his rear end. Ah, sweet revenge! It's my first poem, so please don't cringe. Is it weird that I want PulpFictionFan1, Balboa6 and that pretty little Braveheart avatar guy to join me in a
