Brad Pitt is a Fighter

Brad Pitt is a Fighter

Brad Pitt will star opposite Mark Wahlberg in boxing flick The Fighter, a drama about boxer Irish Mickey Ward and his unlikely path to become world lightweight champion.

According to Variety, Brad replaced Matt Damon because of scheduling conflicts.

Mr. Pitt will play Dicky Eklund, Mickey’s half-brother and a talented fighter who once went the distance with Sugar Ray Leonard in a title fight but then turned to crime and landed in prison. Then he turned his life around and helped his underperforming brother find the spark for a remarkable run that led to the world title.

The Fighter will be directed by Rachel Weisz‘s hubby Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain).

You just know there will be lotsa shirtless and sweaty scenes in this film. Ladies, buy your drool rags now.

    because he doesn`t want to limit himself in just one kind of career in his movie.why he should just do meaningful movie.THIS IS ACTING AND THEY SHOULD ENJOY THEIR WORK.

    he should have some fun movie too,he shouldn`t limit himself in just one aspect of acting.

    LIKE ANGIE IS DOING.SHE DOES DRAMA AS WELL AS ACTION MOVIE.

    sounds like a role for 20 something may be I am wrong

    Yes you are wrong. The character Brad may star as fought Sugar Ray Leonard. Thus he can’t be in his 20′s.

    Google Sugar Ray

  • love brad and angie

    49: does that make brad love her less.

  • Lisar

    Okay, once again I want to point out that Darren Aronofsky and Rachel Weisz are NOT married. Also, Darren A. was supposed to direct Brad Pitt in The Fountain until Brad changed his mind. Nice to know they let bygones be bygones. Didn’t they learn from Cinderella Man, though? It didn’t do as well as expected.

    BRAD CAN SPEND TIME WITH HIS FAMILY WHILE HE IS WORKING LIKE NOW.SO WHY ARE YOU SO WORRY ABOUT THEIR TIME FOR THEIR FAMILY.YOU SOUND LIKE TROLL.

    AND WHY YOU CARE ABOUT BOX OFFICE VERY MUCH.DO YOU BECOME FRIEND WITH SAM.WHO THE H*** DOES CARE ABOUT BOX OFFICE.THAT WAS A GOOD FILM AND THIS IS THE TRUTH.

  • Mediterranean

    I not tire myself to write long comments about Brad who is ONE OF THE MOST HANDSOME, ATTRACTIVE MEN IN THE WORLD. He is THE ONE of last 10 years in Hollywood. You love it or not; he is the one.

    TO TIJEN,

    Elif goes to school full day, 08:30-11:30 then I take her home for lunch (actually just to give a break to her teacher) she goes back to school from 13:30 to 16:30 for 4 days of a week. There is no school on Wednesday in France. Don’t ask me why, it’s French thing.

    TO GULI,

    Elif is coming with me. We can’t survive without each other YET :)

    AMH has made close to a $1 million more abroad, I learnt it is in limited release.

    ———–
    Yet another flop to add to Jolie’s filmography of FLOPS and HORRIBLE MOVIES. Jolie will never star in a great film like Brad.

    =======================================

    YET, she is still sought after time after time after time after time to me in movies. Go figure. And she still has about 75 million more dollars than you. And she has Brad Pitt, Who has more money than God

    39 Jolie is Razzie’s Princess

    You are 100% wrong. Angelina is about to make a film with Clint Eastwood. How much better film casting can you get? She is in great demand BUT she has not signed up for anything new because she is going into a nesting Mommie mode and Daddy Brad is her main man who will be bringing home the bacon for a while.

    Where is Vince and Paul, Anyone? And what about Chins Family, where could they be,,anyone????

  • Sheri

    A little research goes a long way. Because you say it does not make it so!
    Most Razzed

    The only two actors to be nominated for an Oscar and Razzie for the same performance are James Coco for Only When I Laugh in 1982 and Amy Irving for Yentl in 1984. Neither won either award.

    In addition, Christopher Walken and Alec Baldwin were both nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor and a Razzie for Worst Supporting Actor in the same year, albeit for different films. Walken was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in 2002 for Catch Me if You Can and Worst Supporting Actor for The Country Bears. Baldwin was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in 2003 for The Cooler and Worst Supporting Actor for The Cat in the Hat.

    The actors to have won both a Razzie and an Oscar for acting are Faye Dunaway, Marlon Brando, Charlton Heston, Laurence Olivier, Roberto Benigni, Halle Berry and Liza Minnelli. In addition Sofia Coppola, Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, and Prince are also Oscar and Razzie winners, but only one of the two awards was in acting.

    With an astonishing fourteen nominations in all (thirteen of which were from the year it was eligible—despite only twelve categories being awarded that year) and eight “wins”, 1995′s legendary box office debacle Showgirls is the most “Razzed” film in Razzie Award history. 2000′s sci-fi film Battlefield Earth, which originally “won” seven Razzie Awards (from eight nominations) in 2000, tied this record when it was awarded an eighth Razzie in 2005.

    The most “Razzed” individual in the history of the Razzies is actor Sylvester Stallone with thirty nominations and ten “wins”. (His first Razzie Award was for Worst Actor in the 1984 film Rhinestone, his latest was Worst Supporting Actor for 2003′s Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over.)

    70 Jolie has EIGHT RAZZIE NOMINATIONS, Brad Pitt has NONE

    While you’re counting flops, did you include Jenzilla the moose’s turkeys?

    Her career looks like world war 2: BOMB after BOMB after BOMB after BOMB.

    Angelina can get a part in any movie she wants.

    Jenzilla hasn’t worked for over two years, and she finally got a bit part in a rom-com (which is all she’s fit for) while at least four othr actors got star billing over her. Ouch! That’s gotta hurt.

    And as if that wasn’t enough — word is that another role she was supposed to get may be yanked out from underneath her and given to Katherine Heigl instead. The studios want a winner and they know Jenzilla ain’t it.

    Another review of TAOJJ

    Notable part:

    “Pitt is the best reason to see this movie. All his years of being a celebrity in the eye of the storm have no doubt worked to his advantage here. When Paul Newman played Buffalo Bill in Robert Altman’s “Buffalo Bill and the Indians,” he emphasized the yawning gap between the dime-book legend and the actual, ordinary man. Pitt convincingly incarnates the Jesse James legend while at the same time subverting it. Jesse’s hair-trigger psychosis is not what we expect – not even from our antiheroes.”

    It’s good see Angie out supporting the UN and Darfur once again — hope while she is not filming next year that we get to see her doing more UN work. Maybe even taking Zahara to see her birth place since she hasn’t been there since her adoption.

    Thanks so much for the new pixs. They are a couple in every way aren’t they, and the unbelievers/disbelievers/nonbelievers in the complete realness and solidness and unity of this couple can now scream in unison as usual and begin their ineffective rants.

    Love how Brad and Angelina just go about living their lives together as always.

  • jolliebee

    WHATEVER YOU SAY ABOUT BRAD’S AGE DOES NOT MATTER, HE STILL LOOK PHYSICALLY FIT THAN A 20 YR OLD GUY. IN SOME MOVIES, THEY MAKE HIM LOOK OLDER DEPENDING ON WHAT ROLE. THE FACT IS YOUR BRAIN IS SO NARROW THAT YOU THINK IF A PERSON IS OVER 40 YOUR’RE TOO OLD AND DON’T HAVE TO BE IN THE MOVIES. WAIT TILL YOU’RE IN YOUR 40′S, YOU’LL PROBABLY LOOKED OLDER THAN BRAD PITT. DOES YOUR PARENTS LOOK OLDER THAN THEIR AGES, MAYBE SO.
