Bradley Cooper and Paul Rudd will join Julia Roberts in the upcoming Broadway production of Richard Greenberg's Three Days of Rain. The show, directed by Joe Mantello, is set to begin previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on March 28.
Three Days of Rain centers on Walker Rudd, his sister Nan Roberts and their childhood friend Pip Cooper, who all meet in New York to divide the legacy of their late fathers, who were partners in a renowned architecture firm. In an effort to bring some peace to their own lives, the three search for clues that might explain what had gone on between their fathers, and the women in their lives, decades before. The story then shifts to that earlier time, with the same three actors portraying the previous generation.
Cooper is currently starring in the Fox series Kitchen Confidential, which returns from a brief hiatus on December 4. He also had major roles in The Street, Alias and Jack & Bobby. His film credits include The Wedding Crashers, Changing Lanes, My Little Eye, Carnival Knowledge, Wet Hot American Summer and the upcoming Failure to Launch. Cooper graduated from Georgetown University and the Masters of Fine Arts program at the Actors Studio Drama School at New York University.
Rudd has appeared on Broadway in Twelfth Night and The Last Night of Ballyhoo. His other theatrical credits include Ancestral Voices at the Westport Country Playhouse, Long Days Journey into Night in London, Bash in both New York and Los Angeles and The Shape of Things in New York and London. For the final two seasons of Friends, he played the love interest of Lisa Kudrow's Phoebe. His film credits include The 40 Year Old Virgin, Anchorman, P.S., The Chateau, Wet Hot American Summer, The Shape of Things, The Cider House Rules, The Object of My Affection, Clueless and William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet.
