Bradley Cooper Confirms No A-Team Sequel, Hoping for Role in 3D Gatsby Movie

Mar 14, 2011

  • Gunning for Gatsby A few days after confirming that a sequel to The A-Team movie was not in development, Bradley Cooper is now gunning for a completely different role – a cocky blue-blooded husband named Tom Buchanan in Baz Luhrman’s upcoming 3D adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby and Carey Mulligan as his love interest Daisy/Tom’s wife are already locked in. Cooper has said “To me, he’s the best character in the book. He’s so complicated. He’s xenophobic, he’s an alcoholic. Whoever plays [the role] has to take a gentle hand, because it could so easily be stock, where he’s the rich jerk you don’t identify with at all.” While that may sound like a Mel Gibson biopic, can Cooper, who’s done a great job in the action and comedy genres, pull of this dramatic role? --Derrick Deane
