Bradley served as the stunt coordinator and second unit for the car chase scenes in The Dukes of Hazard. Johnny Knoxville praised him saying "everyone in Hollywood wants Dan Bradley to shoot their car stuff" and cited him as a factor in his taking a role in the film.[4]

He was also originally cast to portray Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives but was replaced by C.J. Graham despite this the scenes he filmed were still included in the film making this the second instance of 2 actors portraying Jason in one film (not including A New Beginning as the killer was not Jason though he appeared in dreams and hallucinations).

In 2016, he made his debut in Indian Cinema, as the Second Unit Director and Stunt co-ordinator of the Bollywood film Ghayal Once Again.
