Bradley Cooper Is Unrecognizable in Upcoming Netflix Film 'Maestro'
He portrays Leonard Bernstein, who ages throughout the film.
Bradley Cooper underwent a wild transformation for his upcoming Netflix film, Maestro. The actor plays American conductor, composer, pianist and music educator Leonard Bernstein. Cooper plays both a young and old version of Bernstein.
Photos from the Maestro set show an unrecognizable Cooper, who co-wrote and directed the film. In a few of the shots, Cooper portrays a young Bernstein alongside Carey Mulligan as Bernstein’s wife Felicia Montealegre. The last photo shows the actor’s prosthetic transformation as he plays a much older Bernstein with aging skin, wrinkles and gray hair.
For the most part, main details of Maestro remain unknown with the exception of the release year and plot. The film is slated to premiere in 2023. According to the Internet Movie Database, the film is about “the complex love story of Leonard and Felicia, a story that spans over 30 years — from the time they met in 1946 at a party and continuing through two engagements, a 25 year marriage, and three children.”
