Brad Pitt Tells Sports Illustrated He's 'Amazed' He Was Offered Moneyball

Brad Pitt Sports Illustrated cover

Brad Pitt's beautiful face is covering the latest issue of Sports Illustrated (one of the very few non-athletes to do so) in honor of portraying Oakland A's manager Billy Beane in the upcoming film Moneyball.

During a candid interview with the sports magazine, the Oscar-nominated actor shares he is actually "amazed" producers offered him the role because of his lack of baseball knowledge, explaining:

“It’s shameful how little I know about baseball…. I’m amazed they let me do this movie…. Baseball and I didn’t get along that well. I wrestled one year [in high school]. I dove one year. Everything but baseball.”

We'd be amazed if they didn't ask Brad to do this movie!

In fact, rumor has it that this movie could finally nab Brad his first Academy Award! We're crossing our fingers his performance is as good as the early reviews are suggesting because it's about time he went from Oscar-nominated actor to Oscar-winning!

So since Brad isn't exactly the world's biggest baseball fan, what drew him to the story? “I’m a sucker for the underdog story, " he shares in the issue hitting newsstands on Wednesday.

That may be about all the movie has in common with other conventional sports dramas too! Brad insisted Moneyball is more than meets the eye, explaining:

“What we were trying to do is tell an unconventional story in the Trojan horse of a conventional baseball movie.”

We're definitely intrigued and are looking forward checking out Moneyball when it hits theaters this Friday!

Brad Pitt Narrating Opening Segment For MLB All-Star Game

Brad Pitt All Star game

The MLB has managed to get one of Hollywood's biggest stars to lend his voice to a segment honoring some of baseball's biggest stars.

Brad Pitt will be narrating an opening segment to the 82nd All-Star Game tonight on FOX.

Sources say the bit will celebrate outstanding baseball players from the past and present.

It makes perfect sense considering the actor is starring in the upcoming biopic of baseball player and manager Billy Beane called Moneyball. It also makes perfect sense because aside from his gorgeous face, he's got one of the sexiest voices in film! Ha!

We might have to make time to catch the first few minutes of this broadcast!

We almost forgot how handsome he is with that scraggly beard he was sporting for what felt like years!

But Brad Pitt's still got it!

The gorgeous actor was snapped on set of Moneyball portraying Billy Beane, the manager of the Oakland A's and we have to admit — we wish HE was wearing the baseball uniform.

Still looking good, 'bb!
