Bradley Cooper will appear on CBS's "Limitless"

"Limitless" - CBS - Trailer 2015. A man gains the ability to use the full extent of his brain's capabilities. A television adaptation of the 2011 film 'Limitless'. Directed by Neil Burger and Marc Webb.

Bradley Cooper will reprise the role of Eddie Morra from the film LIMITLESS, for a recurring role in a new TV series based on the hit movie. LIMITLESS, directed by Neil Burger, was a surprise hit for Cooper back in 2011, and news broke earlier this year that the movie was to be adapted for television. The series, like the movie, revolves around a man who discovers the mysterious drug NZT which allows its user to unlock their brain’s full potential. The character of Finch also “has a clandestine relationship with Senator Edward Morra (Cooper), a presidential hopeful and regular user of NZT who has plans of his own for his new protégé,” according to Deadline who broke the news.

The official statement says that Cooper will appear “as much as his schedule permits” on the CBS based drama, but he will definitely have a guest spot in the pilot episode which has been directed by Marc Webb (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN). Source:

Limitless avoids overt political statements; nevertheless, Morra’s rise lampoons the left-leaning artist by showing that bohemians will take a piece of the action if given the opportunity. Limitless is a blast to watch. Dazzling effects render NZT’s impact on Morra. Multiple Eddies fill the frame, capturing his frenzied, yet focused multi-tasking. Glowing letters fall from the ceiling and form words as he writes his novel in two NZT-stoked sittings. Numbers tick over in the ceiling panels as he works out an algorithm for turning $12,000 into over $2 million in just a few days.

Mise-en-abyme effects hint at the infinite possibilities opened up by the drug, as well as Morra’s burgeoning ego. The camera plunges forward in an unwavering line, passing down sidewalks, through crowds and buildings, mimicking Morra’s dizzying drive to know. Cooper clearly relishes the role and makes the NZT-addicted Morra impossible to hate. Deploying his wit and boundless confidence, Morra pulls in the audience along with everyone he meets on screen—traders and cocktail party guests alike. Source:
