Kathryn Morris to star with Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill in Moneyball
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The upcoming film MONEYBALL, based on the book from Michael Lewis ‘Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game’ now has a leading lady to add to the cast. Kathryn Morris from TV’s ‘Cold Case’ is set to star as Billy Beane’s second wife. The film, as you’ve probably read, is about the former Oakland Athletics general manager that built a winning team with virtually no budget and a computer-based software program. The film stars Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stephen Bishop and Robin Wright.
Brad Pitt is one of those actors whose films merit a first weekend viewing no matter what, but I’m still curious as to what direction they’re going to take this film. I think they can easily make it a feel-good drama, ala THE NATURAL, or they can make it a light-hearted comedy ala BULL DURHAM. The subject matter is really up to interpretation depending on what screenwriter Aaron Sorkin wants to do with it.
