<FONT COLOR="FF0000">UPDATED</FONT>Bradley Cooper on almost becoming 'The Green Lantern'!

On last night's edition of "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien," the former 'Green Lantern' candidate revealed his audition process. Now with video..

This from MTV's Splash Page:



"I did get a chance to try out, which was amazing to even get a chance," Cooper told O'Brien. "Ryan Reynolds got it—who, by the way, if I was directing the movie, I would cast him. He's perfect. He actually looks like a superhero."

"I couldn't not do Christian Bale's Batman when I was doing the audition," he laughed. "I don't know what it was! I put a mask on and the director was like, 'Okay Bradley, be regular and talk.' And I was like, 'Yeah, got it... [in a deep, gravely Batman voice] listen, Sally, we're going to have to take your family away if you don't listen to me!' By the way, that's the worst Batman impression ever. I apologize."

When he saw actual playback footage from his audition, Cooper said that his Bale-inspired take on Jordan was laughably bad.

"At one point, I actually walked back and saw it, because they have it on the monitor while you're auditioning," he remembered. "I saw a little clip as they were rewinding it, and I thought, 'Oh my god, that can't be.' It looked like a Saturday Night Live sketch! I was like, 'Oh, I'm not getting this! Now I can really do my Batman! Who gives a s---?'"
