Here’s the Funny, Retro Trailer for Wet Hot American Summer TV Series, Starring Bradley Cooper

Netflix just released the trailer for the TV series based on the 2001 summer-camp spoof Wet Hot American Summer, starring folks like Philly’s own Bradley Cooper and Amy Poehler.

The trailer views like an ad for the camp that was recorded on an old VHS tape that was probably on the fritz. It promotes Camp Firewood’s many activities and the long-lasting friendships that are waiting to be made. If you watch really closely, there’s even a split-second throw-in of the steamy sex scene between Cooper and fellow star Michael Ian Black. Cooper returns to reprise his role as Ben, the token gay camp leader who runs the theater portion of the camp with fruit-fly Susie (Poehler).

The series is called Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp and it will be released on Netflix on July 31st—unless they decide to surprise us by sharing it early like they did Orange is the New Black.

It’s pretty neat to see Bradley Cooper and Kevin Hart, two Philly boys, having their Hollywood heyday at the same time. Over the past few years, their names have been linked to phrases like “top box-office draw,” “No. 1 movie,” and “mega millions.” So it’s no wonder Tinseltown has chosen to immortalize them in concrete and star-shaped plaque form on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Bradley Cooper Named One of the Most Stylish Men Alive

Today in celebs-who-used-to-live-here style news: Bradley Cooper made GQ’s list of the 20 most stylish men alive (their words, not ours). This is great news for a city that doesn’t have the most sterling fashion reputation (remember this sweatpants study?) and also proof that if you take a regular guy, gives him millions of dollars and access to some of the best designers in the world, he can be one of the most stylish men in the world.  Read more »

Bradley Cooper, who is in Europe performing in The Elephant Man, was in Paris recently, when he was shot by paparazzi with his girlfriend, supermodel Irina Shayk.

WATCH: Bradley Cooper Walks His Dog Through the Italian Market

Last night, Bradley Cooper was up for a Best Actor Tony award for his performance in The Elephant Man. Unfortunately for fans of the Philadelphia native, he didn’t win. (Alex Sharp, who didn’t even have an agent when he auditioned for The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, did.)

But before the award show broadcast on CBS, 60 Minutes profiled Cooper (in a slightly-updated story from February), talking to him about his Academy Award nominations — he has three! — and his work on stage in New York. Read more »

Bradley Cooper Gets His Own Sardi’s Caricature and It’s, Um, Very Pretty

Bradley Cooper joins the ranks of decades of celebrities who have been honored with a portrait that now hangs in Sardi’s Restaurant in Manhattan’s Theater District. The honor is akin to getting a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, but here your mug is at the mercy of a caricature artist. As one USA Today blogger points out, Cooper’s portrait “certainly resembles the Oscar- and Tony-nominated actor, but it also, um, looks like a woman. Maybe it’s the lip color and eyelashes?”

Bradley Cooper Sports Eagles Cap at Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

Philly’s Bradley Cooper repped his Philly pride at this weekend’s Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight, sporting a cap from his favorite NFL team, the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles tweeted their approval:

CBS sports blog 247 Sports took notice, writing:

Cooper, who many may think is a just a fan because of his role in Silver Linings Playbook is actually a die-hard Eagles fan. He was born and raised outside Philadelphia and then attended Georgetown University before pursuing a career in acting.

This past season Cooper did voiceovers for Eagles promotional videos leading up to key NFC East games against the Cowboys and Giants.

In the aforementioned videos, he teamed up with other Philly folks John Legend (who went to Penn) and the Roots on a couple videos meant to get fans in the spirit. The one where he taunted the New York Giants was a particular favorite.
