Hugh Douglas, the WIP/Fox29 sportster and former Eagles star, shot a scene Monday with Bradley Cooper for the movie The Dark Fields.

Douglas plays a high-stakes-poker player in the thriller. He has a burgeoning list of "acting" credits, according to IMDB, including scenes in The Nail.

The scene was shot inside a room at the Palomar hotel in Center City, which was decorated to look like a VIP lounge.

Douglas told me he and a couple of other extra-types played a simulated game with Cooper's character. "He was the only one winning," he said. Douglas got the role after casting agent Diane Heery "called me out of the blue."
