    Brad got a Golden Globe and got a Oscar nomination. He is a very good actor.

  • Lara

    Brad Pitt is an okay actor but more popular for his personal life than anything else. Leo on the other hand is a fantastic actor who is much more respected as such in the industry than Brad.

    I do hope this movie happens with the 2 of them in it though.

  • Lara

    Leo has gotten way more nominations and awards than Pitt. Because he is way better actor.

  • sonia

    just look how popular brad is , even people who claim not to like him fill up his thread in no time, i tell ya, the man is powerful, brad is still the man. hehehe

  • vickifromtexas

    leo and brad are both good actors. leo is famous for his personal life too. if he didn’t date a string of victoria secret models his name would be mentioned less as well.

  • IMO

    Leo is overrated and Brad is underrated. Brad is a fine actor. He should have had Oscar for Snatch and Babel. Brilliant performance in these two movies.

  • angel

    lara,i disagree with you,i think he is a very good actor,but because of his looks he is underestimated and overlooked,he is respected by people who know his worth

  • TF

    Paul has done a few not so great movies, but his acting skills are really good. He could pull off an Oscar worthy role… Flags of our Father… But obviously that’s not really his style. I believe he has done good things in the past and could do great things in the future.

    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.”

    With regard to the movie. I don’t see why Pitt shouldn’t do a good job since he has proven himself in other movies. I don’t know enough about Leo’s work personally, I just haven’t wanted to see any of his movies. No fault of his acting, I just don’t have the desire. But from what I have read about him, he is an actor of merit as well.

    Leonardo DiCaprio Tipped For The Jew Hunter in Inglorious Bastards. Meh.
    Posted on Wednesday, July 16th, 2008 at 11:37 am by: Hunter Stephenson

    Hopefully, I’ll have a script review of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards in shortly. After marinating on it for a few days, I don’t feel that it’s the knock out of the park that’s been widely reported. One character vital to the script that suffers from weird incongruities is the main antagonist, Colonel Hans Landa aka “The Jew Hunter.” The trades now report that QT will be in talks this week with Leonardo DiCaprio for the role. Last week, Brad Pitt was said to be in talks for the lead role of Lieutenant Aldo Raine, an American soldier from Tennessee who is an out-and-out shitkicker and Nazi nightmare.

    Below, I’m going to discuss the parts they’re up for, but it’s spoiler-free. Watch out for the comments, though.

    Pitt’s casting would be spot on for the part. We’ve seen him go convincingly gruff and murderous in Fight Club, Se7en, and he can lay on a thick accent, as seen in A River Runs Through It. He’s the right age to play a leader and mythical father figure to his fellow squad of “Basterds.” But while I’m a fan of DiCaprio’s work, he’s just not right for The Jew Hunter, especially if he’s facing off with Pitt. All talent aside, this movie needs to veer away from pretty men. No offense, pretty men. Landa already borders on caricature on the page—he’s also not scary enough for the head ambitious Nazi doosh when the plot’s stakes go high—and while DiCaprio cleans up well and has the eugenics down, let’s face it: Pitt’s Aldo would squash DiCaprio’s Landa with his hands tied. Think the macho mismatch that was Bill the Butcher and DiCaprio’s Amsterdam in Gangs of New York, if Amsterdam rarely got his hands dirty.

    These characters need to be equally deadly and even matched for the sake of creating nail biting, if pulpy, tension. DiCaprio would be fine (ironically enough) for the super powered world of Captain America, but anchoring the nastier side of a WWII juggernaut? Not so much. This is not a case where Brains vs Brawn will do the trick. I want to hate Landa’s guts and fear him, not wonder if my girlfriend is having a better time.

    Quentin Tarantino desperately wants Brad Pitt. He flew to France to meet Brad. This doesn’t happen very often. Brad’s career is so hot.
    ——-
    You can say that again!
    I guess QT went to France because he knows Brad is busy admiring his new babies for a while. Also, QT gets to see Miraval and drink the wine.

    did someone post pitt’s numbers to impress… lmaooo if so they failed. nothing impressive about his movie total.

    # 122 Pitt after botox @ 07/16/2008 at 3:08 pm

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

    ROTFLMBAO. Damn. You trolls are getting more ridiculous as the day goes on. Brad doesn’t have Botox in this picture, dipshit. Here’s a clue for you – HE’S FROWNING. When you’ve had Botox injections in your face you can’t frown. He is, however, wearing makeup. Hence the decreased appearance of the lines around his eyes.

    Furthermore, do we need to have a lesson on the different kinds of lighting and how that affects what the camera picks up? Because, doofus, in your previous picture at post #120, Brad is sitting under florescent lights INSIDE. In the picture above, it was TAKEN AT NIGHT, OUTSIDE, WITH ARTIFICIAL LIGHTING. Therefore decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Duh.

  • the incredible Edward!

    Leo’s baby looks get in the way of his acting imo. Having said that, I think he is v. good in his last films.

    Pitt always had talent… growing up and loosing the baby handsome looks allowed people to see that more clearly. He IS a very good actor, no matter what worshipers or haters say.

    Now, what I am really worried about is Tarantino. Like others posted I don’t think he has done anything exceptional lately.

    Oh yeah, dipshit…I forgot to say…the leader of the pack is NEVER the “best role” in these ensemble pieces. THE SMALLER CHARACTER ROLES ARE. That’s why they’re called “character” roles…cuz they’re characters, as in oddballs/colorful. Duh. Ever seen The Dirty Dozen? Lee Marvin’s the leader, but it’s not the attention-getting role. Ever seen “The Great Escape”? Richard Attenborough is the lead…but it ain’t the attention getting role. Ever seen Where Eagles Dare? Richard Burton’s the leader…but it ain’t the attention getting role. It is, however, THE LEAD ROLE. Word.

    I concur. I put Leo in the same category as Depp – he ain’t all that and a bag of chips. Besides…I’m still holding “Titanic” against him. I realize Leo hates that he did the movie, but that doesn’t absolve him of cashing the check. Which, for my money, is all he did in that movie – show up and cash the check…for 3 of the longest fcuking hours of my life that I’ll NEVER get back. But I’m not bitter…
