Bradley Cooper was all smiles upon his arrival to The Place Beyond the Pines set in upstate New York yesterday. He joins Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes in the Derek Cianfrance-directed drama about a motorcycle stunt rider, played by Ryan, who finds himself toe to toe with a cop-turned-politician, Bradley. Ryan made a drastic physical transformation for his part, bleaching his hair platinum and covering his body in fake tattoos. Bradley, like Ryan, seems to have switched up his look, modeling a shorter 'do instead of his trademark tousled coiffure. The set has remained relatively quiet during production, though recently Ryan Gosling broke up a fight on a street in NYC. Ryan rushed in to help defuse a situation, wearing a muscle-baring tank top, before cops arrived on the scene.
