BRAD PITT (Achilles) is one of the most prominent actors of his generation, having given diverse performances in films such as Fight Club, Legends of the Fall, Seven and Twelve Monkeys.
Currently, Pitt is shooting Mr. & Mrs. Smith starring alongside Angelina Jolie for director Doug Liman. Immediately following, he will re-join the all-star ensemble for Warner Bros. Pictures' Oceans 12, the sequel to Soderbergh's box office hit.
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 has been nominated twice for a Golden Globe Award for his work as Tristan, the passionate, untamable brother in Legends of the Fall and for his co-starring role in Terry Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys. Pitt won the award for his performance in the latter.
Pitt's recent starring roles include Warner Bros. Pictures' Oceans 11, with an ensemble cast that included George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Matt Damon and directed by Steven Soderbergh and Spy Game, in which he starred opposite Robert Redford and directed by Tony Scott. He also co-starred in The Mexican with Julia Roberts and James Gandolfini for director Gore Verbinski and Guy Ritchie's Snatch. He also appeared in cameo roles in Soderbergh's Full Frontal and Clooney's Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.
Pitt also lent his voice as Sinbad in the animated motion picture Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas.
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, Marty Brest's Meet Joe Black, and Fight Club, reuniting him with director David Fincher.
