Most viewers probably don’t remember this, but Bradley Cooper starred as a fictionalized version of the late Anthony Bourdain in a Fox sitcom based off his best-selling book “Kitchen Confidential.”
In the series of the same name, Cooper portrayed “Jack Bourdain,” an executive chef of an upscale restaurant called Nolita. The short-lived series ran for just one season on Fox during the 2005-06 TV season, averaging around 4 million viewers, according to Nielsen. Although 13 episodes were made, Fox only aired four of them.
The series premiered shortly after Cooper’s role in the 2005 comedy “Wedding Crashers.”
It also featured Nicholas Brendon, John Francis Daly, Jamie King, Bonnie Somerville, Owain Yeoman, John Cho and Frank Langella.
