The Limitless star auditioned for the title role in Martin Campbell's forthcoming action adventure, which later went to Ryan Reynolds, and admitted the rejection left him feeling down-hearted.

"I auditioned to play the Green Lantern and I didn't get it, and I haven't had the balls to put the cape on again," he said.

However, Bradley - who will reprise the role of Phil in The Hangover 2 - is eyeing up some other roles.

"It's a hard business but there are a lot of things I would like to do. I would love to do a Western," he added.

The 36-year-old would also like to spend more time behind the cameras, after being a producer on Limitless.

"I hope to do more producing in future. It was a really nice gesture to be given that credit," he said.

"I don't think like an actor, I really do think like someone who's trying to make the whole film, so any part I can play collaboratively outside of just me and the role I love. I just like to work with great actors and directors. You just get up every day and try to get a job."
