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).

War Dogs

2016 R

Based on a true story, the film follows two friends in their early 20s (Hill and Teller) living in Miami during the Iraq War who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts. Starting small, they begin raking in big money and are living the high life. But the pair gets in over their heads when they land a $300 million deal to arm the Afghan Military—a deal that puts them in business with some very shady people, not the least of which turns out to be the U.S. Government.
