Born Jan. 5, 1975, in Philadelphia, Bradley Cooper earned his bachelor's degree in English from Georgetown University before moving to New York City to pursue a master's degree in acting.

While still in school, Cooper landed a role opposite Sarah Jessica Parker in "Sex and the City" (1998), and from there the parts continued to roll in. In 2000, he traveled the globe hosting the Discovery Channel's "Treks in a Wild World," and the following year he missed his graduation ceremony to make his big-screen debut in Wet Hot American Summer (2001). More TV work followed, including the role he's most closely associated with, Will Tippin on the hit series "Alias" (2001-2003).

Cooper has also appeared in a number of movies, including My Little Eye (2002), Wedding Crashers (2005) and Failure to Launch (2006).
