Academy Award nominee and Limitless executive producer Bradley Cooper will reprise his guest role as Sen. Edward Morra in the episode “Side Effects May Include… ,” to be broadcast Tuesday, Oct. 27 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). The news was announced today by “Limitless” executive producer Craig Sweeny at the series’ New York Comic Con panel at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.
Cooper appeared in the series premiere of “Limitless” as Sen. Morra, who provided Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) with a temporary inoculation from the severe side effects of the brain-enhancing drug NZT, and hinted he had future plans for Brian.
