Some Background on Bradley Cooper

In the interview on Fresh Air (below) they talk about Cooper's drama studies at The Actors Studio and early auditions. It's pretty good listening.

There's mention of Cooper's emotional reunion with James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio. I got curious so searched for video. If you haven't seen it, yes, it's very emotional, very good.

Found this which is fun. Cooper, when he was a second year drama student, asking Sean Penn about his role in 'Hurlyburly'. (In the first segment above, Lipton mentions that he had told Cooper's parents he would go all the way and be a success in Hollywood. In this clip you can tell -- Cooper had focus, what it takes -- it's just so clear this guy is headed for a successful career).
