His demotion to a guest star in the show's third season, he explained, made him demoralized and lead him to develop a drug and alcohol problem.

Later, however, he was limited to appearing on two additional episodes as a special guest.

As he talked with his friends, Bradley noted that he had been lucky to go through his addiction struggles when he was still relatively young and trying to develop his acting career.

After appearing as a supporting actor in "Wedding Crashers" and becoming a star in "The Hangover," he resurrected his career and entered the A-list.
