Brad Pitt knows a thing or two about living in a war zone… from his plethora of starring roles in war pictures, of course!!!!
Not unlike his roles in Inglorious Basterds and Fury, the actor brings his charismatic gusto to play General McMahon in Netflix‘s upcoming film War Machine.
But this time, his swaggering confidence will ultimately lead to his downfall in the absurdist war dramedy.
Loosely based on the late journalist Michael Hastings‘ book The Operators: The Wild And Terrifying Inside Story Of America’s War In Afghanistan, Pitt plays a top commander in the U.S. armed forces looking to make things better for the local people of Afghanistan.
Of course, fixing a war conflict riddled with corruption and other political problems is much easier said — with that grizzly grin — than done.
Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above) and catch War Machine May 26 on Netflix!
