He previously played the role in a limited run in 2012 at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts. It is unclear whether his co-stars in that production, Patricia Clarkson and Alessandro Nivola, will also appear in the Broadway show.

PHOTO: First Look at ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Guardians of the Galaxy

While Parks and Rec fans noticed Chris Pratt's dramatic weight loss and temporary exit from the series to film Guardians of the Galaxy, little else has truly been known about the Disney/Marvel project - until now.

The studio released the first official promotional photo of the comic book adaptation (above) on the last day of 2013, as well as an official synopsis:

"An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill (Pratt) finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan (Lee Pace), a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Groot, a tree-like humanoid (voiced by Vin Diesel), the deadly and enigmatic Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand -  with the galaxy’s fate in the balance."

Brad Pitt and David Beckham

David Beckham wants Brad Pitt to portray him in a movie about his life.

The retired soccer star is a fan of the Hollywood hunk and thinks if a film were ever made about him, Brad, 49, would be a good choice for the starring role. "I think Brad would be the obvious choice. I'd like Brad to be playing me - him or Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the two. Or Bradley Cooper. They're not bad looking guys," David joked.

Model Sukie Waterhouse Hopes for Big Film Roles

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrity Gossip, Rumors

Suki WaterhouseModel Suki Waterhouse is using her birth name in the hope of becoming a Hollywood star.

The 21-year-old, who is dating The Hangover actor Bradley Cooper, has gone back to calling herself Alice when speaking to movie bosses, after launching a career in acting, because Bradley thinks she will be taken more seriously.

"Suki isn't a name that's going to make a mark in Hollywood - Alice is far better for her, according to Bradley. Bradley is really getting behind her acting career and using all his contacts to get her into the Hollywood fold. But right now he wants he wants her to be known as Alice Waterhouse. He thinks that's a good solid name and more likely to be taken seriously," a source said.

The British star appeared in an episode of BBC One's romantic comedy Material Girl in 2010, and has had roles in films Rachael, Pusher and Love, Rosie.


‘Hangover III’: the Hangover That Just Won’t End

The Hangover Part III

Toy Story 3, Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade and Return of The Jedi are some of the most well reviewed films of the last 30 years. They are considered great films despite being the third film in a successful franchise. The Hangover III won't go down in history as the worst threequel of all-time, but it definitely forces itself into the discussion with characters that haven't changed one bit since the first film and a stale formula that expired about 5 minutes into Part III.

One of the things the things the film has going for it is its return to gags that center themselves around the repartee (if you can call it that) between the three major characters. Too bad this film forces Leslie Chow down our throats for the majority of the 100 minute running time, whom I have deemed the Jar Jar Binks of comedy films. Okay, maybe he's not that bad, but part of the charm of Mr. Chow in previous Hangover installments was the fact that he showed up when we least expected it.

Bradley Cooper Grateful for ‘The Hangover’ Franchise

Bradley CooperBradley Cooper is "grateful for" The Hangover franchise.

The 38-year-old actor - who plays Phil Wenneck in the movie series - will miss working with co-stars Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha and Ed Helms and director Todd Phillips but says he is happy they were able to complete the trilogy.

"The good thing is, we got three movies out of it. That's the icing on the cake. It's sad. We're all pretty grateful. The third one, we were conscious of the fact it's rare that a comedy series gets three movies. I miss working with them. Hopefully they'll be in my life for a long time. I loved Phil. I love that character. I feel a state of gratitude. When we made the first movie, we had no idea that there'd be another two, so this is all kind of a bonus. "

The film sees the Wolfpack gang - comprised of Bradley, Zach, Justin and Ed - head back to Vegas to settle one final debt and The Hangover and The Hangover Part III co-star Heather Graham revealed she was thrilled to become an "honorary Wolfpack member." She said, "It's really fun to be around so many talented, cute men. They're so funny. I loved it. I was told I was an honorary Wolfpack member, so I felt very happy about that."
