Bradley Cooper might keep 'Limitless' from becoming another high-concept film turned crime procedural

The fate of the new CBS series "Limitless" rests almost entirely on Bradley Cooper.

Not because he's a big movie star and his eyes are so darn blue or because he starred in the film of the same name and is the force behind the sequel series, which premieres Tuesday.

No, the success of "Limitless" depends on Cooper because he plays the same character in the series as he did in the film. And that role, Eddie Morra, is what will or won't keep "Limitless" from becoming just another high-concept film turned crime procedural (see also "Minority Report").
