'American Hustle" Oscar-nominee Bradley Cooper will return to Broadway this year in the title role of "The Elephant Man," Bernard Pomerance's Tony Award-winning drama. The actor's rep confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that Cooper would star in this second Broadway revival of the play, which originated in London in 1977. The play won three Tonys, including best play, two years later, and was mounted again on Broadway in 2002. Cooper last played Broadway in 2006 opposite Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd in Richard Greenberg's "Three Days of Rain."
