Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill Cover 'New York' Magazine

Brad Pitt and his Moneyball co-star, Jonah Hill, cover New York magazine’s Fall Preview issue, on newsstands this week.

Here’s what the 47-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On why he “became obsessed” with the story: “I saw it as a story about justice. How is a team with a $40 million payroll going to compete with a team with a $140 million payroll and another $100 million in reserves? Any talent they grow is going to get poached by the rich teams. That became really interesting to me.”

On working with Jonah: “Jonah’s a revelation in this thing – he’s a study in reserve. I think the most interesting work that’s been going on in the last couple of years is what the comedy guys have been doing. Guys like Jonah and Russell Brand and [Seth] Rogen and a few others … they picked up on an irreverence that started with Adam Sandler and continued with Will Ferrell, but they’ve been grounding it in a kind of pathos and humanity. I find it really strong work.”
