How ‘Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later’ Explains Adam Scott Replacing Bradley Cooper

This Friday (August 3) marks the return of the Camp Firewood gang with the Netflix miniseries Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, but while most of the all-star cast returns, there’s one noticeable absence:  Bradley Cooper.

The 2001 cult classic film was Cooper’s first film role, and even though he reprised the role of Ben in the miniseries prequel Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp (albeit he filmed all of his scenes in one day due to his busy schedule), he won’t be appearing in Ten Years Later and will instead be replaced by Adam Scott.

So…how will the recasting be explained?  One word, two syllables:  Rhino…plasty.

Seriously can’t wait to go back to camp this Friday!

Sometimes, in order to move have to go back. Welcome to the Camp Firewood 10 Year Reunion! From David Wain and Michael Showalter, the filmmakers that brought the original 2001 cult classic and the 2015 acclaimed prequel series by the same name, Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is the hilarious new eight-part limited series starring the original cast, plus an all-star lineup of new cast members.
