NOT A BASEBALL FAN? JONAH HILL SAYS YOU’LL STILL LIKE ‘MONEYBALL’

DePoseur…

The other is the movie “Moneyball,” which finds Hill co-starring with Brad Pitt.  The film tells the true story of the Oakland A’s baseball franchise and their unusual system of using statistics to build winning teams while spending very little money.

Although the film is set in the world of baseball, Hill told us that you don’t have to be a fan of America’s pastime to understand or enjoy it.

I think it's the real baseball fans that will have problems with it, not non-fans.

Bingo. Non baseball fans won't be sitting there thinking about how Brat Pitt hasn't been able to get his team above .500 in five years.
