Philip Seymour Hoffman joins Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill in Moneyball
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I think MONEYBALL is officially near the top of my most anticipated movies. The story of the Oakland A’s putting together a winning baseball team based on financial calculations that manager Billy Beane had crafted is generating quite an impressive cast. Joining Brad Pitt (as Beane) are Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Wright Penn. Hoffman is reteaming with his CAPOTE director Bennett Miller. If the deals are finalized, Wright-Penn would play Beane’s ex wife while Hoffman would play Art Howe, the general manager that clashed with Beane.
I foresee some great dialogue in this film and some good shouting matches between Hoffman and Pitt. Miller has shown a knack for bringing out the best in his actors, so this should be a good film.
