If you missed the news, Bradley Cooper‘s 2011 sleeper hit “Limitless” is becoming a TV series on CBS. He will also serve as executive producer on the show, and it looks like he’s going to take it one step further by popping up from time to time.
Variety reports that the actor “may” recur on the show playing his role Eddie Mora from the movie, pending his ever busy schedule. But let’s face it, Cooper is a pretty good guy to have in your pocket if sweeps is coming up and your show needs a little ratings boost. Anyway, Jake McDorman will lead the show as the NZT addled Brian Finch who uses his drug-enhanced special abilities to help….solve FBI cases? They turned the premise of the movie about the unlocking the massive potential of the brain into a procedural? Ugh. Anyway, Jennifer Carpenter (“Dexter“) is in support.
Marc Webb (“The Amazing Spider-Man“) directed the pilot and the show will air this fall on Tuesday nights. Check out the trailer below.
