While wish Mr. T replacement Quinton “Rampage” Jackson seemed a tad more badass in the trailer, the sight of Bradley Cooper shooting planes from a tank on a parachute is enough to get us excited for the new A-Team movie, which celebrated its premiere in Hollywood last night with Cooper showing up in a tank. Co-stars Jessica Biel, Liam Neeson and Patrick Wilson were there as well, joined by such well-wishers as Jon Hamm, Kristen Bell and Adrien Brody, who actually tied his tie right! Too bad his slick fedora and vest made him look like Justin Timberlake‘s forgotten older brother Lenny. See more photos of the celebs (and that tank!) in the gallery below.

Bradley Cooper‘s busy filming The Dark Fields in NYC, and it looks like they’ve reached the “sloppy hippie” pages of the techno-thriller’s script. How do you feel about his unusually unkempt hairstyle? Do you miss his slicked-back, suave short hair or think he should keep it wild and hit the road with the Kings Of Leon? Let us know what you think in our TheFABLife poll.

When exactly did Bradley Cooper become an action bad-ass? Ten years ago he was Amy Poehler‘s gay musical partner in Wet Hot American Summer, taking TV roles (Kitchen Confidential) and bit parts in comedies (perhaps you saw The Comebacks?) before stardom came calling with last year’s The Hangover. He lost the part of Green Lantern to Ryan Reynolds, but his heroics in the upcoming A-Team movie must have been impressive enough to snag him the lead in The Dark Fields, a full-blown “techno-thriller” about mind-altering designer drugs co-starring Abbie Cornish and Robert DeNiro.
Shia LaBeouf was originally set to play Eddie, a slacker turned hyper-intelligent speed freak, but now it’s Bradley getting a gun pulled on him by some Statham-esque thug on set. If The Dark Fields—planned for March 2011—and The A-Team are hits, it might be a while before we see Cooper chasing Sandra Bullock in a rom-com like All About Steve again. Let’s hope it doesn’t get to his fake-tanned head!

Either Bradley Cooper was coming down with a serious fever at last night’s Valentine’s Day premiere in Hollywood, or the Hangover hunk seriously needs to work on his tanning technique. It’s gotta be tough to work around manicured stubble, but you can’t just rub, spray or stick a lamp on your cheeks and forehead, dude. When you ignore the ears, jaw and neck it’s just…yow. Hopefully it’s the kind that wipes off fast!

When In Rome is Kristen Bell‘s first big romantic lead role, so we couldn’t blame the Veronica Mars star if she had a knot in her stomach at last night’s LA premiere. We’re not so sure about the knot on her stomach, though, but we like the voice of Gossip Girl too much to sweat whether she really pulls this umbilical awkwardness off or not. Doesn’t look like we’re alone in our enthusiasm for Miss Bell, either—Bradley Cooper, Justin Long, Rose McGowan and Kristins Cavallari and Chenowith all showed up on the red carpet, along with Bell’s co-stars Dax Shepard, Jon Heder, Will Arnett and Josh Duhamel—the last of whom brought along a little lady named Fergie. Heard of her? See what she wore in the gallery below.

It may be a chilly 35 degrees at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, but that’s no excuse for A-listers to abandon ship on the fashion front. It seems the attending celebs have traded trends for keepin’ toasty. At various premieres, Kristen Stewart looked more sleep-deprived than usual, Katie Holmes appeared downright sloppy, and Bradley Cooper proved he looks best in formalwear. It’s a good thing the stars are spending much of their festival time holed up in dark screening rooms, as they’re sure not dressing to impress. [Photos: Getty Images]
When news broke that George Clooney‘s Hope for Haiti Now telethon would airing Friday at 8PM EST on VH1, MTV and just about every channel on your television set, scant details were available as to which celebs would be involved in the show. But that didn’t stop us from starting our Official Hope For Haiti Now Telethon Lineup guessing game. We’re happy to report that our initial list is shaping up to be remarkably accurate (Anderson Cooper‘s involvement doesn’t count because he’s a newsman who sometimes acts like a celebrity, not an actual celebrity).
Performing at the Hope for Haiti Now telethon: Bono, Jay-Z, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Sting, Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen, Shakira and many others who have yet to be announced. There will also be no shortage of A-listers either speaking or manning the phones to take donations, according to E! Online. So if you’ve ever wanted to ring Jennifer Aniston or Jon Hamm late one lonely Friday night, this may be your one and only shot. Also participating are Jake Gyllenhaal, Brad Pitt, Colin Farrell, Zac Efron, Bradley Cooper, Renee Zellweger, Anna Kendrick, Sandra Bullock, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Gabby Sidibe, Chris Pine and Emily Blunt.
As for Robert Pattinson, he’ll be hosting the London segment of Hope for Haiti Now. Clooney and pals will be based at the show’s headquarters in Los Angeles while Anderson Cooper reports from Ground Zero in Haiti. Performances will take place in L.A., New York and London.
Sure, the women looked gorgeous in their Golden Globes gowns, but it was the guys who stole our hearts. After all, nothing says sexy like a rain-soaked tuxedo and a thick head of slicked-back hair. And they showed their manners too – did you see how many of the fellas politely held umbrellas for their lovely ladies on the red carpet? Now that’s sexy. [Photos: GettyImages]
The media is going gaga over Sunday’s Golden Globes, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves, people. Do the Globes have Nick Jonas & The Administration as its house band? Do the Globes have Adam Lambert and Sarah Silverman presenting an award together (spoiler: expect something memorable)? Are John Krasinski, Amy Poehler and Death Cab for Cutie paying tribute to John Hughes at the Golden Globes? True, the Globes have funnyman Ricky Gervais as its host, but is he as easy on the eyes as funny girl and CCMA host Kristin Chenoweth? Of course not!
That’s why you’ll want to watch VH1 tonight at 9PM EST (red carpet, 8:30) and join our Critics’ Choice Blog Party right here or via mobile by texting PARTY to 22422. Blogging along with us are our pals Moviefone, The Envelope, The Huffington Post, BestWeekEver and fashion experts Refinery29.

Jackson, Tobey Maguire, Amy Poehler, Zoe Saldana and Susan Sarandon. Critics’ Choice is known as the best barometer for who will win at the Academy Awards. So use tonight to start filling out your Oscar ballots.
This Is It was one of our favorite films of 2009, but it was missing something…and we think we just found it. Sure, the film was all about the music of Michael Jackson, but what about giving some respect to his famous glove??? It seems everyone except Kristin Chenoweth forgot about that notorious piece of handwear. As she gears up to host the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on Friday night at 9PM EST on VH1, allow us to provide you with her latest video short, which has her looking like a cross between a flashy disco ball, a gummy bear and an oven mitt. It’s a real sight to behold, and you’re seeing it exclusively here before it airs on the show.
In addition to Chenoweth’s stellar hosting skills, the show will feature a whole boatload of A-list presenters – where else can you find Meryl Streep mixing with Amy Poehler, or Adam Lambert hobnobbing with Bradley Cooper? With this kind of talent on-hand, someone has to cover it, so check back with us while we live blog the whole thing. To participate on your mobile, text TALK to 22422 or search VH1 in the iTunes App Store to download the Watch and Discuss Live Chat mobile app. It’s free and works on BlackBerry, iPhone and other phones.
