BRAD PITT (Sinbad), one of the
film industry's most prominent actors, has starred in a wide range of
memorable film roles. He earned an Academy AwardÂ® nomination and won a Golden
Globe Award for his performance in Terry Gilliam's offbeat drama "Twelve
Monkeys." Pitt had earlier received a Golden Globe nomination for his work
in "Legends of the Fall," opposite Anthony Hopkins.
Pitt first came to national attention
in 1991 with his breakthrough role as the seductive hitchhiker in Ridley
Scott's seminal hit "Thelma & Louise." He went on to earn praise
for his work as the charismatic but doomed Paul Maclean in Robert Redford's
"A River Runs Through It"; the psychopathic serial killer in Dominic
Sena's "Kalifornia"; the reluctant vampire Louis in Neil Jordan's
"Interview With the Vampire," with Tom Cruise; the real-life Heinrich
Harrer in Jean-Jacques Annaud's "Seven Years in Tibet"; a skeptical
homicide detective in David Fincher's thriller "Se7en"; and the
manipulative leader of the controversial "Fight Club," which reunited
him with Fincher.
Pitt more recently garnered acclaim for
his role in Guy Ritchie's "Snatch." He also joined an all-star
ensemble cast, including George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon and Bernie
Mac, in Steven Soderbergh's hit remake of "Ocean's Eleven." In
addition, he starred opposite Julia Roberts in the romantic comedy "The
Mexican," and with Robert Redford in Tony Scott's "Spy Game,"
and made cameo appearances in Soderbergh's "Full Frontal" and George
Clooney's "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind."
His list of film credits also includes
Martin Brest's "Meet Joe Black," Alan J. Pakula's "The
Devil's Own," Barry Levinson's "Sleepers," Tony Scott's
"True Romance," Ralph Bakshi's "Cool World," and
"Johnny Suede," which won the Best Picture award at the 1991 Locarno
International Film Festival.
Pitt will next star as Achilles in the
epic drama "Troy," based on the Greek poet Homer's classic account
of the Trojan War, The Iliad.
