American Sniper star Bradley Cooper to bring The Elephant Man to London’s West End.

Bradley Cooper will take his acclaimed portrayal of Merrick, better known as the Elephant Man – an Englishman with severe deformities who was exhibited as a human curiosity in Victorian times – to London this summer, as the Broadway production transfers to the West End. “Never did we think we would have the privilege to perform this show on Broadway, let alone in London,” Cooper, 40, said in a statement. “I’m honored that Alessandro [Nivola], Patricia [Clarkson], the entire company and I have the opportunity to continue to tell his story.” Cooper has won raves for his performance as Merrick, who died in 1890 at age 27. Alessandro Nivola and Patricia Clarkson, his co-stars in the Broadway staging, and the rest of the U.S. cast will reprise their roles in the London outing.The “American Sniper” star is a regular on the underground in New York City and thinks it’s a perfectly normal occurrence for a famous actor to use such a form of public transport because it is the “best way” to travel around the city. “It seems crazy to me that using the subway is seen as a sign of being normal! He told the Daily Mail newspaper: “There’s something about the physical manifestation of the movie star, who by nature has to be looked at, playing this part.

He is nominated for his third Oscar for his role as Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in Clint Eastwood’s critically-acclaimed war film, which stormed the worldwide box office last weekend to take just under $100 million.
