Limitless, Bradley Cooper

Dark Fields Productions

CBS just got a little more sexy.

Are you a Bradley Cooper fan? Did you like his movie Limitless? Well, then you're definitely going to be tuning into CBS this fall.

The network unveiled its schedule for the fall 2015 TV season on Wednesday, with the TV adaptation of the 2011 thriller. While Cooper serves as an executive producer on the series, Limitless will star Greek's Jake McDorman as an average guy who can suddenly access 100 percent of his brain capacity with a mysterious pill.

But good news: Cooper, who once won People's Sexiest Man Alive, will appear! "He's in the pilot and will recur, subject to his availability," CBS boss Nina Tassler revealed during the network's Upfronts presentation.  


Cooper will play the same role from the film, senator Edward Mora, who shares a secret relationship with McDorman's character, Brian Finch. A presidential hopeful and regular user of NZT, the mysterious drug that boosts cognitive abilities, Mora has plans of his own for his new protégé.

Of course, this isn't Cooper's first TV role, as Alias fans will remember (and either love or hate) him as Will Tippin, Sydney's (Jennifer Garner) best friend, and he appeared on Nip/Tuck. Plus, he's set to reprise the role of Ben in Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer revival.
