Thanks for reaching out and I’m looking forward to meeting you!
If you have a few more minutes…I’ve shared a short story below about a popular young actor and a man named Bradley Cooper.
Bradley & Brian: Limitless
Ultimately, they would go their separate ways. They would never work together on the big screen again, despite industry experts calling for at least 2-3 more sequels to Limitless. “…the next Clooney and Pitt” could be heard from packs of moviegoers after watching the box office smash for the 5th time in as many days.
They would have done great things together in Hollywood. Just ask anyone who made the mistake of watching Silver Lining Playbook the following year. Cooper fell under scrutiny for his sad, lazy performance alongside an even less inspiring effort by Bob DeNiro. It would also make tabloids that neither Bob or Bradley made an effort to help secure a role for Laffey. Cooper has said it was “the biggest mistake I will ever make in my life.” DeNiro had no comment for such a lapse in judgment.
Sadly, we’ll never know what could have been. One thing is for certain: at the end of Limitless, for approximately 3 seconds, way back in 2011 — and also televised every Friday and Saturday night on TNT, SyFy and TBS since 2011 — we witness greatness.
