It was also confirmed yesterday that Brad will star in the film version of the hit BBC political drama, State Of Play. Brad will play journalist Cal McCaffrey, who discovers ugly secrets surrounding the death of a high-profile politician. His investigation reveals a conspiracy, and both the British Government and the oil industry are involved.

  • guli

    Do any of you people realize how much time you spend EVERY DAY insulting, judging, hating?? I doubt that this is positive/healthy for any of you. It seems hard to believe you can hate someone (that you dont know at all) so much, yet spend so much of your available time trying to make others hate her as well. Im wondering what you are getting for this – surely its not healthy to spend so much time in a negative state.

  • bdj

    Thanks Just Jared for the New thread. I am looking forward to seeing BABEL. Below is a cute article about BP’s next role.

    By Lexi Feinberg: 2006-10-12
    If you’re like me, you are happy to see Brad Pitt showing an active interest in making movies again. While it’s great that he is prowling the planet with Jolie and taking care of neglected babies, he is a fantastic actor and the big screen misses him. Or better yet, I do.
    According to BBC News and Dark Horizons, he will star in the film version of the hit BBC political drama, State Of Play. Pitt is set to play journalist Cal McCaffrey, who was portrayed by British actor John Simm in the boob-tube version.
    Writer Paul Abbott broke the good news, and left the masses giddy with delight. The story is about a journalist who discovers ugly secrets surrounding the death of a high-profile politician. His investigation reveals a conspiracy, and both the British Government and the oil industry are involved. Why am I not surprised?
    Brad Pitt can be seen next in the highly-anticipated movie Babel, opening October 27th.

  • Estelle

    Gitane!!!, wake up!!!, * smack * smack*…pour a jug of water on her face.

  • Estelle

    34 | guli – you are very welcome Mayor. :)

  • Alexanderina

    29 | guli | – :lol:, so Babe party on 10/28/06, and we also have to have a party for TGS

  • Anna


    “The 10-day International Film Festival of India (IFFI), starting in Panaji from November 23 and showcasing films from 40 countries, would open with ‘Volver’, a Spanish film directed by Pedro Almodovar starring Penelope Cruz and Carmen Maura.

    ‘Babel’, directed by Alejandro Gonzalez (Mexico), starring Kate Blanchett and Brad Pitt would be the closing film for the festival, according to a release by Entertainment Society of Goa, a nodal agency to conduct IFFI.

    The festival will present films from about 40 countries in the prestigious cinema of the world section – including those films that have won awards and acclaims abroad and debut films that have won critical reviews, the release stated.”

    I have no interest to look for more of the same elsewhere. Im not trying to start a fight I can see how passionate you all are. Just curious why you waste your time with things/people that you seem to detest. More curious about the amount of time you waste – if I dislike something/one I definately tend to limit the amount of time they occupy my energy and thoughts. Just wondering.

  • Estelle

    41 | Alexanderina – OMGoodness, we need to list out all of the party….I have to order party supplies.

  • Charone

    uhmm Yes my Brad looks so good. I am indeed so lucky to be attracted to both the beautiful Brad and Angelina. YUMMY

  • Estelle

    44 | what for?? – we are not detesting BP and AJ?…we love them? you are confusing me, Woman….make up your mind, first you are accusing us of worshiping them, now you are telling us we are wasting our time detesting them?…why are you occupied your energy and thought and wasting your time with us then? and wasting our time as well….OMGoodness…sorry ladies, the room was clean and smell good until now…I know, I know, I’m wasting my time response to them..
