Everybody's going green these days; it's the trendy thing to do. Even Bradley Cooper is jumping on the bandwagon, but in a WAY different way. If you have yet to hear of the actor -- What, you haven't seen Wedding Crashers? -- then you soon will. If the rumor is true, Bradley Cooper is being considered for the title role in The Green Lantern.
Rumor: Bradley Cooper Carries a Green Lantern
According to HitFix, Warner Bros. has reached out to Bradley Cooper to star in The Green Lantern, which will be directed by Martin Campbell. Don't get too excited just yet, as the studio and actor are currently only discussing the notion.
Let's be clear: they have not hired him yet. But the process is far enough along that this is more than just a meeting or some spot on a wish list. Keep in mind that Campbell likes to see a lot of people when he's casting... and even when he's screen-testing, he seems willing to explore as many options as possible... but with the film set to shoot later this summer, they've got to start making their choices, and now's the time to put people in front of the camera and see who really works in the suit.
Considering that I've been a big fan of Bradley Cooper for some time, I couldn't be happier with the choice to use him. The dude's been due some spotlight, and this should do it. Check out the entire report on The Green Lanternhere.
