Bradley plays, Douglas J Ames, a psychiatrist and best friend of the lead characters Lilith, played by Jodelle Ferland, whose worst fears get the best of him in a bathroom full of hornets.
6. The Rocker (2008)
Cooper plays Trash Grice, a ridiculous member of an 80’s style hair metal band named Vesuvius. In the film they kick their drummer named “Fish”, played by Rainn Wilson, out of the band right before becoming famous. Cooper is hilarious as the clueless rocker, check it out on DVD if you haven’t already.
5. Limitless (2011)

3. Wedding Crashers (2005)

2. The Hangover (2009)
Cooper plays Phil Wenneck, one of four friends who travel to Las Vegas for a bachelor party only to wake up the next day not remembering what happened and the groom is missing.
Phil Wenneck: [his answering machine message] Hey, this is Phil. Leave me a message, or don’t, but do me a favor: don’t text me, it’s gay.
1. The A Team (2010)
Bradley plays Lt. “Faceman” Peck, a good looking, smooth talking, soldier whose part of an elite team that is called on when the job is classified as ridiculous. This one is a “must see” for any respectable mans man.
