Bradley Cooper will not be The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Bradley Cooper has decided not to star as American spy Nathaniel Napoleon Solo in Steven Soderbergh‘s film adaptation of the classic show The Man From U.N.C.L.E., The Wrap reports.

It was believed Cooper was waiting to find out who would play his Russian offsider Illya Kuryakin, before officially signing on. Joel Edgerton was reportedly in talks for the part, but according to The Wrap, it remains un-cast.

George Clooney had previously declined the Solo role.

Discuss: Should Soderbergh take all this rejection personally?

  1. Wasn’t the American called Napoleon Solo, not Nathaniel?

  2. I can’t see Bradley there anyway. I’m still in awe that Hollyweird writers have such little imagination that more and more films are either remakes or television shows turned into movies, but I digress. I could see Harrison Ford or Richard Gere cast there, but Bradley Cooper IMO wouldn’t be a good fit anyway. Here’s one: Have Kelsey Grammar and David Hyde Pierce and make it into a comedy version!
    Hey..I’m showing some imagination! hehee…sounds like it’d be a hoot though!
