London, Jan 23: Bradley Cooper is set to return to Broadway, as he prepares to take on the role of the Elephant Man.
The 39-year-old actor will in fact be playing the disfigured character without make-up or prosthetics, conveying his deformity through physical movements alone, the Independent reported.
Fresh from playing wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso in David O Russell's 'American Hustle', Cooper is returning to the stage after an eight-year absence.
His last Broadway performance was in Richard Greenberg's 'Three Days of Rain' in 2006, with Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd.
Cooper has taken on the role of the Elephant Man once before, at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in 2012. His 'American Hustle' co-star Alessandro Nivola also starred in that production. (ANI)
