Toss It Around

If I was the Hollywood Reporter editor in charge of dreaming up headlines for the magazine, I’d have a problem with “Being Brad Pitt.” It’s kinda lame and generic sounding, like something Interview might use. HE alternate #1: “NOT GONNA WIN…and That’s Cool.” HE alternate #2: “RICH SCRAGGLY BEARDO & The Performance of His Career.” HE alternate #3: “LONG TIME COMING: Brad Pitt’s Career High.”

  1. Even better is the line underneath:

    ‘The restless mind of a serious producer and actor as he questions god’s existence.’

  2. The “questioning god’s existence” makes me wonder about the status of the adaptation of The Sparrow that supposedly Pitt was involved with as a producer. IMDB is pretty quiet on the subject now. Too bad because it is one of the better pieces of literature I’ve read in recent years. Scifi that transcends the genre. BP would have been a good match for the main character (I don’t know if that was his intent) who is cerebral, physical, humorous, and tragic. It would be a pretty monumental film to make from the source material though.

  3. THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES is, in my opinion, the most underrated film of the 00s. And Brad Pitt is great in it. Time will turn it into a stone cold classic. And it will be remembered long after MONEYBALLS.

  4. I wonder if Wells’ love affair with Brad Pitt can survive World War Z.”

    Absolutely not — is there even any doubt? I can almost read the career obituary now…

    “Brad Pitt’s last truly great performance will have come in 2011′s Moneyball. Aside from that, though, he had already been on a pretty steady quality decline with his smirking performance in the awful Inglourious Basterds, his CGI-heavy work in the overrated Benjamin Button (which was more about the ‘hoo-hah, look what we can do with FX’ rather than capturing any true emotional resonance), and now he’s just decided to give up completely by succumbing to making a zombie movie more brain-dead than the antagonists themselves.”

  5. Nice use of limited depth of field in Pitt photo. Evokes a Lincoln portrait by who, Matthew Brady? Badass cool, Lincoln. Not Crazy mofo Lincoln like DDL will likely give us. The narrow focal plane style is a nearly played out fashion of the mid 2000s, but it’s done well here.

    Dude looks good, cheekbones and all. Mancrush? . . . Maybe.

  6. Considering how often Pitt spends time with Clooney and Damon, some of the secondhand things he says makes him sound awfully Chauncey Gardener-ish.

  7. I don’t know which post depresses me more: reno’s note that The Sparrow STILL criminally languishes in development hell, or that Kaned’s COMPLETELY ACCURATE in a scary psychic way about what we’ll read from Jeff here soon enough.

  8. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.home design ideas
