    Brad is an excellent actor. He would do a great job. His peers, directors, and producers would agree.

    We know script and director are key with His Bradness. If negotiations have gotten this far with him, he must be mostly okay with the script. So, I am guessing that the choice of director will be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, factors in his deciding to do this film.

    Oooh a villain. I think he makes a good one. He wasn’t necessarily a villain in Fight Club, but he sure makes a sexy bad boy.

    I think he would be magnificent, I hope he takes it on. A true actor always looks for diverse roles and Brad is ever-expanding his horizons. Besides, how great would he look in ancient Roman getup?

    They always have Brad circling films. Rarely does he do them. Then all of a sudden we will read that Brad is in talks and he starts next month filming a movie we never heard of like KTS and The Counselor

    William Bradley Pitt – hair shorn, clean shaven, body buffed up and battle hardened, with that sonorous voice in roman military attire – yes, lord.
    It probably won’t come to pass, but oh my, the images.

    ot but Taylor Swift needs to keep her legs crossed, she’s too young to be a serial dater. I can see her heading down Ticky’s path if she keeps this up.

    And the best part. You know every troll and hater would be first in line – at the Midnight show, and the morning shows, and the matinee, and the evening… But it’s all good, just more money for Bradley’s lady and babies.
