Brad Pitt in Moneyball

Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill got on the cover of New York Magazine to promote their new exit called Moneyball.

Pitt said:

“I saw it as a story about justice. How is a team with a $40 million payroll going to compete with a team with a $140 million payroll and another $100 million in reserves? Any talent they grow is going to get poached by the rich teams. That became really interesting to me.”

“Jonah’s a revelation in this thing – he’s a study in reserve. I think the most interesting work that’s been going on in the last couple of years is what the comedy guys have been doing. Guys like Jonah and Russell Brand and [Seth] Rogen and a few others … they picked up on an irreverence that started with Adam Sandler and continued with Will Ferrell, but they’ve been grounding it in a kind of pathos and humanity. I find it really strong work.”

I just can’t wait for this premiere to pop out!
