Three-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper won't merely make a cameo on CBS's' "Limitless," he'll have a recurring role.
The network announced this morning he'll reprise his character Eddie Morra from the 2011 action thriller about an author with writer's block who expands his brain capacity with the aide of the nootropic drug NZT. Morra is now a U.S. senator with White House aspirations, making the TV series a clear sequel to the film.
CBS's “Limitless” follows Brian Sinclar (Jake McDorman), as he discovers the power of the drug NZT, and is coerced into using his newfound abilities to solve cases for the FBI. Fueled now with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Brian is more effective than all of the FBI agents combined. However, unknown to the FBI, Sinclar has a clandestine relationship with Cooper's Morra, who has plans for his new protege.
The series also stars "Dexter's" Jennifer Carpenter, Hill Harper and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. "The Amazing Spider-Man's" Marc Webb directed the pilot.
Cooper is executive producing alongside Craig Sweeny, Marc Webb, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin, Todd Phillips, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley and Tom Forman.
"Limitless" will air Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
