Yahoo: Movietalk: Brad Pitt Going All Out for ‘Moneyball’

To say Pitt has been less than shy in his public appearances in support of “Moneyball” is putting it mildly: never before has the actor seemingly campaigned so hard to sell a film, happily posing for photos that milked his universal sex appeal. The new Sports Illustrated cover boy knows he’s hot, and he’s working it. According to Us Weekly, Pitt charmed journalists on the “Moneyball” red carpet and “let loose” at the afterparty. “He was hugging old ladies, taking pics with co-stars, and letting the crowd photograph him with cell cameras,” says an witness, noting that Pitt busted a move to the ‘80s music that was playing.

And that’s just the tip of the PR iceberg. In addition to his Toronto Film Festival blitz (where Jolie helped him handle the screaming crowds) and the aforementioned premiere appearance, Pitt has made or will make at least five more major press moves around “Moneyball”: Entertainment Weekly, Parade magazine, Sports Illustrated, “Ellen,” and the “Today” show.

All of this brazen publicity-generating behavior suggests Pitt’s laying the groundwork for an Oscar nomination. Pitt’s been nominated twice—as best supporting actor for “Twelve Monkeys” and best actor for “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”—but he has yet to win an Academy Award.

For goodness’ sakes, Brad, don’t you know that the Oscars are a crapshoot??

We're not selling jeans here.

I saw Billy Beane and Brad Pitt on that new ESPN show promoting the movie. They asked Brad Pitt one question. Billy Beane got all the rest. Has to be the only time Brad Pitt was overshadowed in an interview.

Hey now. Maybe her face doesn't come with the perfect aging curve, but I still think Jolie looks OK.

Pitt's performance in "12 Monkeys" (the official title has a number, not a word) was amazing.
I didn't remember him from anything else before I saw him in that movie, so when I found out that he isn't naturally a twitchy, gesticulating freak in real life, I was even more impressed (after the fact).

His mental handicap lost the Oscar to Kevin Spacey's physical handicap that year (in "The Usual Suspects").
Both were excellent performances.

Great character actor trapped in a leading man's body.
Loved his cameo in True Romance, and the Italian conversation in Inglorious Basterds seriously cracked me up.

I think Brad Pitt is a really good actor, but I didn't think he was particularly good in Benjamin Button.

To me, he's a guy that is always really good, but I can't think of any standout acting performances. He's Tim Salmon performance with Albert Pujols looks.
   9. Random Transaction Generator Posted: September 21, 2011 at 09:35 PM (#3932335)
i thought he stole 'fight club' from edward norton.

He is almost a lock for a great performance in 4 out of every 5 movies he does:

"Thelma & Louise" - excellent small performance
"A River Runs Through It" - great job in a rather dull movie
"True Romance" - hilarious cameo
"Interview with the Vampire" - not a fan of the movie, but he's pretty good (better than Cruise)
"Legends of the Fall" - never saw it, but got a GG nomination
"Se7en" - awesome
"12 Monkeys" - even better
"Seven Years in Tibet" - never saw it
"Meet Joe Black" - stinker of a movie, pedestrian performance
"Fight Club" - excellent again
"Snatch" - hilarious
"The Mexican" - dull movie and he's blah
"Spy Game" - meh
"Ocean's Eleven" - doesn't get much chance to really shine, but I love this movie (and everyone in it)
"Mr. & Mrs. Smith" - fantastic
"Burn after Reading" - stinker, and so is his performance
"Benjamin Button" - never saw it, but he got a lot of nominations for it
"Inglourious Basterds" - scene-chewingly fun

Also, his single-episode appearance on "Friends" is fantastic. He's slumming it for his wife, and he blows everyone else out of the water with his comedic performance.

Is "Assassination of Jesse James" any good? It never made it to the local theatres, and I haven't seen it on the DVD/Blu-ray rack in my area. Is it worth finding?
   10. Javy Joan Baez (chris h.) Posted: September 21, 2011 at 09:38 PM (#3932339)
I wasn't that hooked by Button, but I do think he knocked it out of the park in 12 Monkeys.

I just watched it about a week ago. It is solid. I would rent it, not sure it’s worth going out of your way to buy. Of course you may have entirely different movie tastes than I do (see my criticker account!!! "njasdjdh")
   12. Harlond Posted: September 21, 2011 at 09:43 PM (#3932347)
He is also very good in "Babel," and opposite Cate Blanchett, no mean feat.
   13. Bourbon Samurai, what price fettucine? Posted: September 21, 2011 at 10:02 PM (#3932362)
Was just going to post about Babel. Pitt is obviously an interesting guy who thinks a lot about the material he chooses, and that helps a lot. I think he doesn't have the greatest skill set as an actor but is very aware of it and knows how to get the most possible out of it.

"Se7en" - awesome
"12 Monkeys" - even better


I've mentioned before that I saw those back-to-back (I think in that order) at the $1 theatre in North Little Rock.

I still haven't cheered up, I don't think.

And at the time I was just getting over the "Elephant Man"/"Ordinary People" double bill I'd seen 15 years before that ...

I really like it and thought it was one of the best movies that came out that year. Pitt is very good, but Casey Affleck is simply fantastic as Bob Ford (he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor, and, frankly, should have won it over Javier Bardem).

It's not a "action" Western, more of a weird, lyrical, haunting character piece. The cinematography is great and is used to great effect to set mood and unsettling tone.

Loved it, and brilliant performances throughout. I liked No Country for Old Men, but everything that film tried to do with atmosphere and mood, Jesse James did better.

Random

You must have not have seen "Tree of Life" yet

It's an odd movie, and as I have shared in the Lounge I still am not sure about the message.

But Brad Pitt is great as the Dad. I have known and knew plenty of guys like Pitt including a good portion of myself. And No, not saying I LOOK like Mr. Pitt. Just that his character in that film captures how some men acted once upon a time.

The part that really got me though were the scenes with the mother being with her kids when they were young. Since the character resembled my wife (only make her a brunette with glasses) it was like having a webcam back into time. I was literally spellbound during that section of the movie.
   18. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: September 21, 2011 at 10:41 PM (#3932390)
I didn't think A River Runs Through It was dull. But then I identify with growing up in the middle of nowhere. Ha, ha.

I have never seen the guy who played Pitt's brother in that movie in any other movie. Tom Skerritt was a great Dad character in that film.
   19. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: September 21, 2011 at 10:46 PM (#3932392)

Right on, Harvey...this might be Pitt's best performance, really capturing the essence of the unresolved turmoil that haunted so many post-WW II men, some kind of obsessive desire to overcome their various shadings of PTSD by creating a emotional analogue to the blood-brain barrier.

Pitt deserves an Academy Award nomination for Tree of Life. I wasn't even that into the film, but he was at the height of his or anyone's craft in that movie.

Since Ocean's Eleven was mentioned upthread -

I was watching "The Right Stuff", and the Clair de Lune scene with the fountains at the end of Ocean's Eleven is so brazenly stolen from a near identical scene in The Right Stuff (near the end of the movie, Clair de Lune in the background, the 7 guys nodding at each other at a job well done) that it blew my mind. How does one get away with that!?

I have the same view on Troy. Actually one of my favorite fun movies to watch.

Is Ryan Gosling considered a good actor? He seems to be everywhere lately and his movies have been getting raves, but I haven't watched any of them.

I think he's very good. He was excellent in "Half Nelson" and, imo, even better in "Lars and the Real Girl." "Blue Valentine" is also very good (without quite living up to the hype). Can't speak to his other films, but he's first-rate in those three.

Great character actor trapped in a leading man's body.

I didn't think that Troy was fun. In fact, I thought that was one of the problems with it - that it didn't have a sense of fun.

My wife and I have had conversations about how our son is like Norman, and our daughter is like Paul (the Brad Pitt character). The boy is a good, well behaved, well adjusted person who requires little supervision, and the girl is, well, both an incredible joy and a hell of a handful. She can be incredibly sweet and delightful, but also devious and manipulating. And she's only 9. IOW, she takes about 90% of our attention, and we have to be careful not to fall into the trap of ignoring the other child.

I guess I kinda thought it was fun that it took itself so seriously, and seemed to know it. I agree it's subjective, but I'd certainly rather watch Troy than Gladiator.

I mean, Joaquin Phoenix is excellent as a crazy emperor, but somehow that was a movie that I say has no sense of fun from taking itself too seriously, while Troy does.

-shrug- Subjective. I just wouldn't agree with Shooty (or anyone) that it was awful.

Me too. I was disappointed in Gladiator. I expected it to be a rip-roaring swords and sandals epic, with men fighting lions and such. But it was Oscar bait. Troy was closer to the type of movie I'm likely to enjoy.

I've only ever seen him in "Drive," which unfortunately was just OK.
The female lead is totally adorable, though. So there's that.

Tom Cruise is remarkably good in Magnolia. That is a monstrously good cast and he is arguably the best performer (although the role itself is pretty fantastic).

I find that Cruise's performances are the Runs Scored of acting.... whether he is either good or terrible is almost completely dependent on the people around him.

I'm not sure Cruise is really acting much in that movie. I imagine his character in Magnoilia is how he is in real life.

My wife saw Gosling in "Crazy Stupid Love" and said he's pretty decent as a comedic actor (and she of course said he was great in the Notebook).
   44. Blastin Posted: September 22, 2011 at 01:18 PM (#3932949)
I think he was funny in "CSL," but I thought he was pretty amazing in "Blue Valentine." That movie just made me really, really sad.

He's been doing good work for a while. Pretty creepy in "The Believer," riveting in "Half-Nelson," and I liked "Drive" a lot (although it was very stylized so I'd say the supporting cast got more meat to chew, performance-wise, especially Evil Albert Brooks).

Pitt is indeed a character actor who shines when not the 100% center of a movie, though he has come through in this situation before (like some character actors do).

I'm excited to see Gosling (and Clooney, PS Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Giamatti, and others) in "The Ides of March" in a few weeks.

I liked Troy a lot. The best (only?) effort to depict what a historical Achilles/Trojan War might have been like... I thought the decision to remove all supernatural elements was brilliant. Even the ridiculous scenery chewing lines and LARGE HAM performances from Brian Cox and... well, pretty much everybody else just added to the charm for me.
   49. Greg K Posted: September 22, 2011 at 01:45 PM (#3932993)

Gosling is hilarious in Lars and the Real girl. That was such a surprisingly funny, clever, original, and overall very enjoyable movie.

I've never seen Half-Nelson, but it looks mildly entertaining. The wife and I had Blue Valentine form Netflix for about 2 weeks, but could never get into the mood to watch such a likely depressing movie. Might grab it again at a later date.


Gosling was also pretty good in some stuff when he was young. The United States of Leland is an interesting film, and Gosling gives a fairly decent performance. I also seem to remember seeing him in some forgettable Sandra Bullock? murder mystery when he was just a teenager.
   52. Greg K Posted: September 22, 2011 at 02:21 PM (#3933029)

I think that's a fair characterization. They took a myth and removed all the supernatural elements for an attempt at an a approximation of what happened to inspire the myth. I think it's as "historical" as something like "The Patriot". And "dumb historical" sets the bar quite low as well.

EDIT: since that mangled mess probably isn't very clear...I think the intent behind the movie was to make a historical account of Troy. So I think it's fair to call it a historical movie.

It's not just the nodding that they reference, but the fountains waving back and forth are like the feather fans the strippers use in "The Right Stuff".

This movie is going to be a hite. I never thought it would be that successful, but it is getting serious buzz, and doesn't have any real competition opening this weekend (a Taylor Lautner movie, "Dolphin Tale" and something called "Machine Gun Preacher" are also in theaters this weekend). Never underestimate Brad Pitt, I guess.

I don't remember the exact details, but when I saw Troy in theatres, there's some scene where a character says something to effect about how the mourning rituals in their country last three weeks and there was this whole wave of of moaning and sighing, as we all imagined having to sit through the depiction of three weeks of mourning. Then the next scene starts with a 3 WEEKS LATER title card and everyone cheered.

So, that pretty much sums up how I felt about that movie. On the other hand, I thought Burn After Reading was great, and Pitt was very good.

Amazingly, I didn't laugh once during Burn After Reading. There was a bunch of stuff that I was clearly supposed to find funny and yet it wasn't.

On the other hand, it wasn't quite as awful as The Ladykillers, so it had that going for it ...

Here's some from SI.com

Love the equivocating:

Out of all of the first round picks from the infamous Moneyball draft, Swisher has arguably been the most productive major leaguer.


Blanton, taken just eight picks after Swisher, was arguably the second most productive player from Beane's 2002 haul.




Arguably? Really? Twice? There's 3 guys who never made the majors, and a 4th who's MLB career is 5 games. That leaves Swisher, Blanton, and Teahan. Career WAR of 19.6 (and counting), 11.4 (and career may be over), and -1.7. There is no other way to rank them.
