BRAD PITT (Tom Bishop) has emerged as one of the most prominent actors of his generation following his performances in such diverse films as Fight Club, Seven Years in Tibet, Legends of the Fall, Seven and Twelve Monkeys.
Pitt's role as the seductive hitchhiker in Ridley Scott's
controversial Thelma & Louise first brought him national attention. He then went on to star as the psychopathic serial killer in Kalifornia, the charismatic-but-doomed Paul Maclean in Robert
Redford's A River Runs Through It, and the bloodsucking Louis in Neil Jordan's Interview With the Vampire.
Pitt won a Golden Globe Award and an Oscar® nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Terry Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys. He also received a Golden Globe nomination for his performance as
Tristan, the passionate, untamable brother in Legends of the Fall.
Born in Shawnee, Oklahoma and growing up in Springfield, Missouri, Pitt attended the University of Missouri at Columbia where he majored in journalism with a focus on advertising. Right before graduation, he moved to Los Angeles to study advertising and graphic design, but instead began to pursue an acting career, studying with Roy London. Soon thereafter, he began securing roles in various television projects, including the Fox series, Glory Days, HBO's The Image and the critically-acclaimed movie of the week, Too Young To Die.
On film, Pitt has also starred in Johnny Suede, which won the 1992 Golden Leopard Award for Best Picture at the Locarno Film Festival, Ralph Bakshi's Cool World, Tony Scott's True Romance, Sleepers, The Devil's Own, Jean Jacques Annaud's Seven Years in Tibet, Martin Brest's Meet Joe Black and Fight Club which reunited him with director David Fincher.
Following Guy Ritchie's Snatch and The Mexican, co-starring Julia Roberts, Pitt — on completion of Spy Game — joined an ensemble cast including George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Matt Damon for Steven Soderbergh's Oceans 11.
