There's a good chance Bradley Cooper's Sexiest Man Alive title didn't win the actor his upcoming role in Williamstown Theatre Festival's production of "The Elephant Man." Patricia Clarkson will star alongside Cooper in Bernard Pomerance's play, which will run in Massachusetts from July 25 through August 5. In 2006, the "Hangover" star appeared on Broadway in "Three Days of Rain" with Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd. Here are some other stars who've hit the stage:
