Here's looking at you, Bradley.
Bradley Cooper can do know wrong in our eyes. The "Silver Linings Playbook" star is both good-looking and immemsely talented at that whole acting thing, which makes him a double force of nature to be reckoned with. We think he's going to go pretty far in this business.
Check out our collection of pics featuring Mr. Cooper looking hot in movies, on television, at premieres and on the red carpet. "Silver Linings Playbook" opens ... either now or soon, depending on where you live.

There's a certain magical quality to modern day drugs. The tiniest prescribed pill can cure a multitude of medical problems, whilst the tiniest illegally-purchased pill can create the illusion you have cured a multitude of non-medical problems. So it's no wonder Hollywood loves injecting cool ideas about what sorts of human ailments — both physical and spiritual — fictional drugs might be able to treat.
In "Dredd 3D," the latest redux of comic book hero and one-man-justice-system, Judge Dredd, a narcotic named Slo-Mo has hit the streets, allowing its users to experience reality in slow motion (in the future, drug names are very literal). And this got us jonesing for a list of our favorite movie pharmaceuticals we dare you to "just say no" to. Get More »
Regarding August science fiction movies about mental enhancements: there was never just one!
"The Bourne Legacy" may look, sound and smell like an action-adventure movie – that's certainly how they're selling it – but at its center is a genuine sci-fi premise. The baddies (the shadowy agency represented by Edward Norton's scowls) are making super soldiers by introducing viruses into field agents via green and blue pills. "Chems," they are called, but hardcore nerds might be forgiven if they flash on Ketracel-white, the drug that the Dominion uses to give its elite band of warriors, the Jem'Hadar, the edge (as well as keeping them in line.)
"The Bourne Legacy" isn't the first movie to obscure sci-fi-ness in its marketing. We offer up this readymade document for you to bring up whenever you feel like being a pain in the ass at cocktail parties. Get More »
In "Casa de mi Padre" Will Ferrell plays a Mexican rancher in the middle of one seriously loco drug war. In order to commit fully to the role, the "Anchorman" star spent months brushing up on his language skills for the entirely Spanish-language comedy.
That's a lot of effort for a few laughs. But Ferrell is in good company with the following actors who took their performances to the next level by speaking in a foreign tongue, be it for a couple scenes or an entire film. Get More »

Some say that we only use 20% of our brains at any given time. Imagine what you might be able to accomplish if there were a pill that made your brain file on all cylinders at once.
That is the intriguing premise of "Limitless," an intoxicating thriller based on Alan Glynn's book "The Dark Fields" that makes it more difficult than ever to "just say no" to drugs.
Bradley Cooper stars as Eddie Morra, a down-on-his-luck New York City writer who has missed the deadline on his new book and who recently got dumped by his girlfriend, Lindy (Abbie Cornish). He bumps into his ex-wife's brother Vernon (Johnny Whitworth), and starts doing errands for him. Vernon gives Eddie a sample of the new smart drug NZT-48, which helps him finish his book in no time.

You may recognize T.V. Carpio from a certain "Universe." Or from an ongoing story from The Great White Way.
The stunning American-Chinese-Filipino actress burst onto the film scene out of nowhere in Julie Taymor's movie-musical "Across the Universe," eclipsing stars Evan Rachel Wood and Jim Sturgess with her searing rendition of The Beatles classic "I Want to Hold Your Hand."
As the female lead in Taymor's troubled Broadway production, "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," Carpio gives Spidey a run for his money, flying above the audience and duking it out with America's favorite web slinger as the villainess Arachne (as for all the controversy, Carpio says she's just "going with the flow"). And in the new big-screen thriller "Limitless," she goes head-to-head with Bradley Cooper, as his landlord's very angry wife. Get More »
