Bradley Cooper replacing George Clooney in Soderbergh’s “Man from U.N.C.L.E.”?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Bradley Cooper appears to be the “Man.”

That would be “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” a spy thriller based on the classic television show that Steve Soderbergh is hoping to convert into a feature film (and possible franchise). Cooper would fill a lead role that, at various points, had been believed to be going to Matt Damon, Johnny Depp or George Clooney.

Variety now links the “Hangover” star to the role of Napoleon Solo. He’d head to Soderbergh’s film after wrapping his work on David O. Russell’s “The Silver Linings Playbook” and Alex Proyas’ “Paradise Lost.”

Busy times for Cooper. I wonder what that means for a third “Hangover,” which has been rumored by might be on the backburner as all of the stars (from Cooper to Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis) entertain plenty of other options.
