    i have blood diamond and the departed DVDs i like Leo but the haters had to pounce on this Brad thread using Leo as an excuse just to start trouble like always.
    I think having Brad and Leo in one movie will be a win /win situation.
    but i love Brad best

  • hottest couple ever

    besane @ 07/16/2008 at 1:49 pm Both professionally and personally, Brad’s life got much better by 10 fold. Angelina has been the greatest inspiration. Their children make Brad’s life whole. What an all-around upgrade from just a few years ago! Congrats Brad!!!

    But what happened to his Mark Wahlberg movie he was gonna be filming in the Fall??

  • Quote about Brad

    Soderbergh compares Pitt to Steve McQueen, and that seems right: on top of Pitt’s looks, it’s the McQueen air of not-so-studied negligence that’s so attractive, the what-me-worry nonchalance, the centeredness, the at-homeness in his own skin. “I don’t think he gets credit for being as good as he is,” says Soderbergh. “In terms of movie-star performances, I thought he was as good in Snatch as McQueen ever was. It was a really star performance in the best sense of the word, absolutely riveting and charismatic, funny. If another actor had given that performance who didn’t look like Brad, it would have been talked about much more. I found him in Ocean’s 11 to be a really terrific actor, with really good instincts, a really good sense of timing, and an ease that I don’t think you can fake.”

  • Leo

    Leo said in one interview he was glad the days where the mini van used to follow him for his looks are gone.

  • Paullover

    Paul walker was up for this movie and he should have got it not Brad!

  • Quote about Brad

    “He’s gotten away with it because you can’t take your eyes off him,” says Akiva Goldsman, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of A Beautiful Mind and producer of Mr. And Mrs. Smith. “The feeling Brad conveys on-screen is that you’re sharing a secret. There’s this humor that is like grace, that says, ‘I’m watching the world the way you are.’ The finest actors convey that on-screen.”

  • Quote about Brad

    “Brad Pitt is one of those people who transcends box-office success and the failures of his movies; he’s box-office impervious,” says Doug Liman. “We all love him—all of America. We don’t all want to go see some of the movies he chooses to make, because he makes bold choices, but he’s trying to push himself.”

    I agree, but I have to admit I’ve only seen Leo in The Departed. I thought he did a wonderful job. I’ve seen most of the movies you listed for Brad and I think he’s the whole package as an actor.

  • Quote about Brad

    “He doesn’t care what he looks like, doesn’t care what people think about the part,” says Steven Soderbergh, who directed Pitt in the upcoming Ocean’s 11. “I don’t think there’s anybody of that stature who even comes close to taking the risks that he’s taken. He’s absolutely fearless.”

    Brad has held his own with actors better than Leo. Then again…Leo ain’t no De Niro or Day-Lewis….

  • Wow

    BRAD AND LEO YUM

  • RealityCheck

    Does this mean the kids will have to travel with Brad to Germany and follow him from set to set? She just delivered, for God’s sake! Poor kids. Poor Pitt – Jolies. Having a nine-to-five desk job seems like a more peaceful and stable alternative to Hollywood.

    And how do either of you Rhodes Scholars know which is the better role? Only a handful of people have read the script and there’s no way in hell you’re one of them. Notice I didn’t say “either of you”…cuz I think we all know these posts were written by the same person. The lengths you trolls go to to make it seem like there are more than 1 or 2 of you cracks me up. Sybil had 16 personalities but when she died she only died once. Write that down. We’ll be quizzing you later.

    Ummm…why are you guys congratulating Brad? No one has said he’s doing this movie. Just that Tarantino went to France to see if he could talk him into it. Brad is supposed to start shooting “The Fighter” in October. I could be wrong, but I doubt he’ll dump a second Aronofsky project after what happened with “The Fountain”.

  • http://. marina

    Finally, I agree with you. I think that Brad has always wanted to do something else than movies in which he looks nice. More so now, that he has made enough and has taken on different roles besides acting, and not only in show bussiness.
    I like Leo too. I liked his work since he was in his teens.
    Even if they are blonde and more or less the same “type”, their appeal is different and I cannot compare, I’d go watch a good Leo movie and the same goes for Brad.
    I love that Brad goes for drama and comedy too, that he chooses work in different ranges, and is not afraid of acting “weird” or ugly in a movie.

    Good for Tarantino, he is not my favorite director, but I like his casting choices and I was impressed by pulp fiction, I had never seen a movie like that before (action movie fan, not gore and horror here) I have to see the Kill Bill movies yet.

  • Pitt Before botox
  • lori

    Why is there even a Brad vs. Leo debate here? My goodness, why does one have to compare to the other? They are both good actors and they will probably do well together on screen.

    Both of them have taken on such different roles throughout their careers that I don’t understand the comparisons you are all giving. Is it necessary to have to claim one is more superior than the other?

    Take it as it is- 2 good actors possibly working together. I think it will be a quite interesting combination of actors.

  • Pitt after botox
  • Sandra T

    I don’t get it. Why is it that it’s always the same actors getting all these roles. Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon, rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat. I’m kind of sick of seeing them. I do not think that they’re all that great. They always play the same kind of characters, so predictable. I would really like to see Jude Law getting some of these roles. He is by far much more attractive (desirable) with more charisma, and he can play different type of characters.

    Just my 2 canadian cents.

    God, keep blessing and watching over the Jolie-Pitt family.

    @ 106

    Yep you’re right! Paul was up for the role and he should have gotten it.

    Tarantino is a celebaholic and always likes to use big celebrity names in his so so movies. He does this to distract the audience from his poor scripts to make it seem like his movies are bigger than they really are. Granted he has a great sense of style with a 70s edge in his movies that really grabs your attention, but his scripts lack any real depth. I still enjoy watching his movies though, great action. Rodriguez is the real genius behind their scripts. If it’s just Tarantino on his own, the script usually sucks. If it’s Tarantino partnered with Rodriguez, it’s usually pretty awesome.

    Truthfully I don’t believe Pitt is really Tarantino’s style as an actor. He’s most likely using Brad, because of all the recent attention to Pitt and Jolie’s newborns.

    Paul didn’t get this role and thats sad, but I see it as he lucked out. He shouldn’t waste his talent on a crappy script from Tarantino, I’m sure a better opportunity will come around soon enough.

    F_cktard. The script was leaked. That’s HOW I know (IMO) which role is better.

  • sonia

    brad always plays against type, he is just so good looking it’s not funny, but, what i like about brad and shows how smart he really is, he does not use his looks, i agree with the steve mcqueen comment, but also he reminds me of so many other greats, but i don’t care how good looking he is, if he was not a great actor he would not still be here , so many good looking actors have come and gone, brad has substance. he is going to be here a while.

  • Brad and Leo together?

    Yum yum yum…

    Jared, why do you always make everything about Brad Pitt. All Leonardo DiCaprio gets is a small mention? He’s not even the ‘posted to’ section and he has the better role of the two (from reading the screenplay).

    i don’t understand what haters want, do they want us not to like him? if so why? there’s nothing you can say or do to convince me to dislike brad, now that you know that, don’t waste your time, brad is wonderful inside and, out,….. but you on the other hand really need to get a life. he is a great risk taking actor and so much more. he is handsome and hunky.

    I read somewhere if Brad takes this role, he will the highest pay actor in HW.

    ++++++++++++++++

    For all the morons who don’t get what we’re saying – Nikke Finke at Deadlinehollywood.com wrote yesterday that basically the reason no studio has snapped up the foreign distrubution rights to this films is that they’re waiting to see if Tarantino can convince Brad to do the movie. If Brad is in, then every one of the 5 studios approached is going to want to distribute the film. Clearly TPTB in HW know something the trolls don’t – Brad’s name above the title puts butts in seats, especially in foreign markets. If these losers would take 2 minutes to check out the foreign BO for AOJJ they’ll see it was 3 times the US take…in rought the same number or fewer theaters.

    Apparently this lot of dumbbells are too stupid to understand that the majority of BO earnings, nearly 2/3 in most cases, on any more these days is FOREIGN BOX OFFICE.

    Here are some numbers for Brad that illustrate why these studios are waiting to see if he signs up for this movie. Note the much larger take at foreign BOs. THEY LOVE BRAD PITT OVERSEAS!

    Lifetime Gross for all movies – $4,179,378,164

    I thought he was going to take a year off???? Guess that family isnt that important to hm .he needs the adolation of people he never met. You cant tell me he needs the money.

  • To Reality check

    To reality check #113 —–The whole family is already in Europe – they rented a villa – and plan on staying a while — they are just a hop skip and a jump away from Germany and the villa is in France. So I think maybe you need a bit of a reality check.

  • to ignorant Billy Bob

    Being born in France does not automatically confer citizenship. One would think that if you use the internet you would perform some basic research. Ignorance is not bliss.

    Knox and Vivienne are American citizens by virtue of their parents being American citizens, just born abroad like many other American citizens. Like John McCain was born in Panama of American parents, and was an American citizen at birth as are the Jolie-Pitt twins.

    Why are so many poorly educated people in this thread???

  • Isabella84

    Leo and Brad in one movie, HOT! I can’t wait for this movie!

    Why do you people all care about how much his movies earns…? What’s more important is his acting ability.
