Now that Bradley Cooper is an Oscar-nominated actor who commands top billing in critically-acclaimed films, he's open to talking about his struggles as an actor in Hollywood before he was a household name.
In the January issue of GQ, Cooper recalls his time working on the J.J. Abrams show Alias, which stars Jennifer Garner as Sydney Bristow. Despite having a recurring role as Bristow's best friend Will Tippin, Cooper was unhappy with his lack of screen time: “I would only work three days a week... And then for the second season, I got even more sidelined. I was like, ‘Ugh.’ And then next thing you know, I was like, ‘I want to f*****g kill myself.’"
With his growing frustration over his lack of work on Alias, Cooper then asked Abrams to write his character off. “J.J. was like, ‘OK,’ He probably would’ve fired me, anyway," Cooper quipped. He even considered quitting his acting career altogether: "At some point, you have to come to terms with 'The business just doesn’t want you,' you know what I mean?"

Gwyneth Paltrow wants to work with Claire Danes.
The 41-year-old actress is good friends with the 34-year-old Homeland star, and since they both have similar facial features and are petite blondes, she is hoping they'll have the chance to team up on screen and play sisters.
"Gwyneth has known Claire personally, but casually, for almost 20 years and when Gwyn was in her early 20s and Claire was a late teen actress, they both became famous around the same time in the mid-90s. Much has been made of the pair's similar looks and Gwyneth has finally decided that she and Claire have to find a project where they can play sisters!" a source said.
Gwyneth is said to be keener on the idea while Claire - who is currently starring as CIA agent Carrie Mathison on the third season of hit TV series Homeland - is taking things "one day at a time." The source added, "But for now, this seems like a bit of a one-way street. Claire is a cool customer and doesn't get all worked up about 'dream projects' the way Gwyneth does. She's a 'one day at a time' kind of girl, so no one knows if Gwyneth's dream will come true."
Heather Morris and a host of former Glee stars will reunite for the show's 100th episode.
Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy announced on his Twitter account this week that all of the original cast members are being invited back for the celebratory episode. He has now confirmed that Heather - who played cheerleader Brittany S. Pierce in the show - will return, along with Harry Shum Jr. (Mike), Mark Salling (Puck), Dancing with the Stars winner Amber Riley (Mercedes) and Kristin Chenoweth (April), who won an Emmy for her guest turn.
Heather hasn't appeared in the program since the fourth-season finale when Brittany was written out of the series, after announcing she was bound for early admission to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since her exit, actress Heather and her boyfriend Taylor Hubbella welcomed their first child in the world, Elijah, who was born in September.
Whether Dianna Agron, who played Quinn, will return for the special episode remains unclear. The actress has not appeared since the 14th episode of Glee's fourth season and was not a part of season five's tribute to late star Cory Monteith.
Mike Tyson wants a role on Downton Abbey.
The boxing legend wants to take on more acting roles since his retirement from the sport, and would love Julian Fellowes to write him a part in the British period drama set in the early 20th century. When asked whether he wanted to act more, Mike said, "I would. I'm coming to the West End soon for my one-man show, so maybe when I fly to the UK they'll give me a part on Downtown Abbey [sic]. I like that show. I'm sure they could give me a part."
The former world heavyweight champion found it tough reminiscing about the past for his new memoir, Undisputed Truth, and claims his childhood was harder to bear than the "good days" he spent in jail in the 90s in the intimate company of his female counselor. "There were some horrific things [in my childhood] that I did not enjoy. Jail was a lot easier ... I had a female counselor and we'd do it for a long time. I had some good days in there," Mike quipped.
Now that the buzz has died down from the excitement (which was quickly followed by disappointment) of the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who, BBC fans have something new to look forward to: the season premiere of Sherlock!
Announced via public stunt that was later posted to the show's Twitter account, Sherlock will return to the BBC on New Year's Day while us American folks can catch it air on PBS January 19th. Season three - which begins with the episode titled "The Empty Hearse" - will be divided into three 90-minute episodes. Episode two and three of this season are titled "The Sign of Three" and "His Last Vow," respectively.
Check out the season three trailer for Sherlock after the jump!

Matthew Morrison says that the Glee cast are over the "hump" of Cory Monteith's tribute episode.
The actor admits it was "hard and emotional" to say goodbye to both the actor - who overdosed on heroin and alcohol in July - and his character Finn Hudson in a one-off episode, but says the tragedy has brought them all closer together:
"We've kind of got over that hump of the Cory tribute episode. I'm so happy we did that, it was incredibly tough, hard and emotional for everyone but we all came together, we were happy to be on the other side of that. We're a family and we all have a great relationship with each other, but that just really solidified us and made us stronger."
Matthew was scheduled to play a concert the night he heard Cory had passed away and though he considered cancelling the show, he was happy it went ahead as he found performing "therapeutic." He explained to Britain's OK! magazine, "I had two shows after he passed and thought about cancelling them but I didn't want to let people down, I didn't think Cory would want me to. The shows were so hard to do but I'm happy I did because there is nothing more therapeutic than singing."
Kanye West doesn't like how Keeping Up With the Kardashians is filmed.
The 36-year-old rapper, who is engaged to the reality show's star, Kim Kardashian, admits he refuses to appear on the E! series because he doesn't think the production is up to his "meticulous" standards. "I don't do her show just because I don't like the way the producer shoots some of the shots. I'm very particular to that. I'm meticulous right. And I like to get a different DP [Director of Photography] or whatever," The "Bound 2" hitmaker told New York's 92.3 NOW radio station.
Emma Thompson would have "loved" to have become the first female time lord in Doctor Who.
The Oscar-winning actress denied speculation that she was offered the role given to The Thick of It actor Peter Capaldi, but said she would have jumped at the chance to join the BBC series.
"I would have said 'yes,' I'd have loved to have played Doctor Who. Maybe women need their own kind of new time traveling person?" she said, appearing alongside former Doctors Matt Smith and David Tennant on The Graham Norton Show.
On the upcoming 50th anniversary episode "The Day of the Doctor," the tenth Doctor David and eleventh Matt remain tight-lipped about the show's plot and only revealed Peter will "join at Christmas."
Dianna Agron is finding it "hard" to be away from the Glee cast.
The 27-year-old actress is upset at claims there was a rift between herself and the other stars of the show after she failed to appear in last month's special Cory Monteith tribute episode, and admits it has made dealing with the death of her co-star even more difficult.
Dianna - who played Quinn Fabray on the show - told Ireland's Independent newspaper, "Bad news spreads faster than anything good. And I think it's just such a shame, especially involving someone that we love so much, that the good old internet has taken everything that they want to say about it and spread it like wildfire. So I've nothing but love for that show and everybody involved in it and it was such a huge part of my life, so I think it's equally hard when I'm not there every day anymore, I don't see all of them every day anymore to have things like this fly around. It's more heartbreaking than it would be if I was there with everybody. It makes me feel even farther away from our show."
"I love Portlandia! I would do that show, in a heartbeat. I would love that. You know when Saturday Night Live did a sketch of The Walking Dead, and Bill Hader played me? He invited me to the after-party, and Fred [Armisen] was there, and I was such a big fan, I just spent the entire time trying to hug Fred over and over and over again. I think he thought I was a complete weirdo. He might be scared of me now... I'm a hugger, too. But it was literally like seven hugs, and he was looking at me like, 'Again? You want to hug again?' I might have hugged him to death. But I love the feminist bookstore skit. I love that whole show. It's awesome."
