Bradley Cooper says getting a doll in his image has always been his “career goal”.
The actor can soon be seen playing Lieutenant Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck in The A-Team, a remake of the popular 80s show. Movie bosses are certain the feature film will be one of the biggest blockbusters this summer, and have arranged for a series of dolls modelled on the main actors to be made. Bradley stars in the film alongside Liam Neeson, Sharlto Copley, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and Jessica Biel. They are all pleased to have toys of themselves made, but for Bradley it is a dream come true.
“I do indeed have my own action figure although apparently it looks nothing like me,” he laughed. “I am very excited that there is an action figure for Face. It feels like a big deal. Getting my own toy was always the goal!”
Bradley had to beef up for his role in The A-Team, with women expected to go wild for the hunky physique he sports in the movie. He had to stick to a strict regime to put on enough muscle, and was forced to give up bread. Sandwiches are a staple of Bradley’s usual diet, and he missed them greatly.
“Well, for The A-Team I had to get in this crazy shape but I still like to make sandwiches, although bread doesn’t really factor in when you’re getting in shape,” Bradley explained. “So I used to take grapes and put an almond in between. Pretty nuts – we got pretty crazy on the set of The A Team!”
