    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.

    “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.”

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

    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.

    bla blah Says:

    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.
    Ditto.. I wanna see the new younger talent like Ryan Gosling. Also I want to see non-white actors get some major film roles as well.

    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 agreed with you about Leo and Brad being great actors, but Paul Walker???? Maybe I’ve had the misfortune of seeing all his bad movies on cable TV.

    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 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
    Domestic Gross – $1,692,005,311
    Foreign Gross – $2,487,372,853

    Domestic: $3,909,149 26.1%
    + Foreign: $11,092,627 73.9%
    = Worldwide: $15,001,776

    + Foreign: $101,027,345 74.7%

    Domestic: $186,336,279 39.0%
    + Foreign: $291,871,241 61.0%

    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 Says:

    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???
