As the lead in director Neil Burger’s 2011 theatrical release Limitless, Bradley Cooper gave one of his better performances. Opposite Abbie Cornish and Robert DeNiro, Cooper played Eddie Morra, who stumbles upon a pill that allows him to use 100% of his brain functions. This allows him to manipulate the world around him, and, as we said in our review of the film here at borg.com back in 2013, the result was a superhero movie hidden within a film marketed as a drama.
Cooper is briefly reprising his role as Morra in a television sequel series coming to CBS. Cooper will hand off the leading role to actor Jake McDorman (Live Free or Die Hard, House, M.D.), who plays Brian Sinclair. Like Morra, he will use these new found powers to change the world around him.
Limitless co-stars Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter), Colin Salmon (Arrow, the Brosnan James Bond films, Doctor Who, Resident Evil, The Bank Job) and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio (Grimm, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves). Check out this preview for Limitless:
Limitless will air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. Central on CBS beginning September 22, 2015.
