Brad Pitt is Billy Beane

Brad Pitt is Billy Beane

Brad Pitt gets down to business at Smashbox Studios in Hollywood and then hops on a private jet at Burbank Airport on Tuesday (June 2) in Calif.

The 45-year-old actor is set to star in Moneyball, which begins shooting on June 11. The flick centers on the major-league’s Oakland A’s and their general manager Billy Beane (Pitt) who attempts to draft players to the team using computer-generated analysis.

As producer Michael DeLuca tells LA Times, “If you try to think of a movie star who could embody someone like Beane – a former athlete who’s an incredibly physical specimen with movie good looks — you pretty much get to Brad Pitt right away.”
