How hot is actor Bradley Cooper? “So hot,” says Wilmington’s Suzette LeMaitre Rudawsky, “but don’t tell my husband I said that.”
Suzette worked in Philadelphia with Cooper as a principal extra in “The Dark Fields,” which stars film legend Robert DeNiro.
Suzette landed two scenes. In the first, she played an office worker who had to hail a cab and cross the street at 16th and Market several times. Dressed in a black suit and winter coat, she was, she says, “very hot.”
In the second scene, she was one of 12 actors drinking fake wine and dancing in the bar of Paradigm. “I was shoulder to shoulder with Bradley,” she says—close enough to hear Cooper kissing another actress. (So much for “acting.”)
Everything was shot in silence. The music and other sounds were added later. “They even put rubber padding on our shoes to silence the clunking.”
It was a long day, Suzette says. The extras waited quietly for their closeup in an empty restaurant on Chestnut Street. “But they took good care of us. They have to—SAG union rules.”
Local actor Lyman Chen (“The Departed”) helped Suzette get in with casting people. “The Dark Fields,” directed by Neil Burger, also stars Elizabeth Banks, Abbie Cornish and Anna Friel. From IMDb: “A copywriter discovers a top-secret drug, MDT-48, that enhances intellect and other abilities. As his usage begins to change his life, he begins to consider the drug’s shadowy origins; meanwhile, a group of killers trail his every move.” Hmmm. Look for it—and our own Suzette—in March.
