Just watched a review of 'The Place Beyond the Pines' and they said that it was Bradley's best performance and he almost brought the reviewer to tears. Does anyone know much about this film?

I first saw him in a tv movie called the reality of love, about a reality tv show similar to the batcholer, it also starred one of the guys from 91210 ( the first one), I thought at the time he was a hottie. It was on sky yonks ago, I watched it cos anya from buffy was also in it, I have tried to get it on DVD with no success. I did have it on video but got shot of video ages ago. It was a good rom com.

I was apprehensive about him being in the a-team, but thought he played peck quite well. Shame there aren't going to be any more.

It's a shame he missed out on the Golden Globe but all the nominations are great

He was terrible, but then so was everything about that film. The A-Team was a prime example of why films that spend years in "development hell" should never ever be made.

I remember him from the long running series 'Alias'. I was pleasantly surprised that he has done so well for himself!

Noticed him in Alias, then again in the Hangover. Didn't think he was anything special.
very impressed with him in Silver linings Playbook though, watched it the other day.

I can't wait until SLP is on DVD. I saw it twice in 3 days back in November but really want to see it again!

Won me over when I watched his performance in 'Limitless' and then the 'silver lining playbook' - Was indifferent before, but now I quite rate him as an actor!

I think Limitless was a turning point. I think it proved that he could be the main star of a film and carry it brilliantly.

I loved him in The Place Beyond the Pines. He was great in The Hangover as well.

Can't wait to see his next film

If they get the release date sorted, that should hopefully be Serena later this year, reuniting him with Jennifer Lawrence. I think they're a great onscreen partnership. A confirmed release for this year anyway is his other David O'Russell movie, American Hustle, which is released on Christmas Day in the USA at least, not sure about here.

I need to see The Place Beyond the Pines soon - I hate the Hangover movies but thought Cooper was great in Silver Linings Playbook.

Yeh I've heard that he's in two more films with Jennifer - should be good

TPBTP is a brilliant film. The soundtrack is wonderfully haunting and Bradley is amazing in it - quite a 'grown up' role for him too.

He does seem like a nice enough bloke. I used to be quite critical of him but he has paid his dues to get where he is, better than some twerp having it all handed to him on a plate. His next step really should be taking a part that doesn't involve the cheeky grins and california tan with a wink to the camera though. Christian Bale isn't perfect but compare him to Bradley Cooper and there really is no contest if you just focus on the acting and not the popularity. It'll be interesting to see their new film together.

Met him at the premiere for The Hangover Part 3, he comes across as a really nice guy, spent ages meeting fans on the red carpet where he signed autographs and took "selfies" with people's cameras. Same cant be said for some of the cast members!

I never really took much notice of him before but he was fantastic in Silver Linings and The Place Beyond the Pines. Definitely more than just a pretty face

Yeh it's nice to know that he worked for it as well. I watched an episode of Law and Order: SVU yesterday with him in it and that was back in 2005.

I've been a fan since his Alias days too, i like to point out i've been into him long before he got his big breaks in movies when people bring him up! Actually re watched the Alias pilot the other day, he's got the hot geek thing going on, way before it was popular! And he's blonde, i forgot how good he looked blonde! *swoon*

Seriously though, he's excellent in Sliver Linings and i think it's great he's getting the respect of more serious roles that just 'the fit one in The Hangover'.

Yeh it's lovely that he's also getting gritty roles. The Place Beyond the Pines and Silver Linings Playbook is proof of that.

I've never seen Alias, is it good?

Gorgeous looking man.

Only saw him in Hangover I and II, he was decent enough in it for what the film was.

BUT blew me away when I saw Silver Linings recently, what a surprise that was!

Always had potential his idol was Robert De Niro i recall Bradley asking a question to De Niro i think it may have been in the Actors Studio, saw Silver linings and what a performance both by him and Jennifer Lawrence.
