Bradley Cooper keeps an eye on tele­vi­sion show ‘Lim­it­less’

The China Post - - ARTS -

Bradley Cooper has been on stage in Lon­don but keep­ing an eye on “Lim­it­less,” a new TV se­ries ver­sion of his 2011 big-screen film.

He “checks in pretty regularly, just ac­tor to ac­tor,” said Jake McDor­man, who plays the lead role in CBS’ drama de­but­ing Sept. 22. “I’m thank­ful for his avail­abil­ity.”

McDor­man and Cooper, who is an ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer on the se­ries and has a re­cur­ring role, share another screen credit: They were in “Amer­i­can Sniper,” which earned Cooper an Os­car nom­i­na­tion.

Cooper reprised his “The Ele­phant Man” Broad­way role in Lon­don, wrap­ping the run last week­end. But he helped long-dis­tance with ma­jor “Lim­it­less” plot points and tone, ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers Craig Sweeny and Alex Kurtz­man told a TV crit­ics’ meet­ing Mon­day.

In the se­ries, McDor­man plays Brian Finch, a man whose use of a brain-en­hanc­ing drug, NZT, makes him in­valu­able to the FBI in solv­ing com­plex cases. Cooper ap­pears as a pres­i­den­tial hope­ful who also takes NZT and has his own plans Finch.

“Lim­it­less” the movie starred Cooper as a NZT-us­ing writer who faces his own dan­gers be­cause of the drug.
