Bradley Cooper Up For “Green Lantern”?

“Alias” hunk turned comedy supporting actor Bradley Cooper (“The Hangover,” “Failure to Launch”) is a frontrunner to play the titular galactic superhero in the upcoming “Green Lantern” film for Warner Bros. Pictures says HitFix.

While no deal has been signed yet, HitFix’s always reliable Drew McWeeny insists the casting rumor comes from several reliable sources and while it’s not yet locked – its well beyond the mere audition/discussion phase.

Ryan Gosling, Anton Yelchin and Chris Pine have previously been either linked or rumored for the role. Martin Campbell (“Casino Royale,” “The Mask of Zorro”) directs the project which begins shooting later this year in Sydney, Australia.
