OCEANS 12

BRAD PITT (Rusty Ryan) has emerged as one of the most prominent actors in the world, starring in films such as Fight Club, Legends of the Fall, Seven, and Twelve Monkeys. He most recently starred as Achilles in Troy, for director Wolfgang Petersen. To date, the film has earned nearly $350 million worldwide. Prior to rejoining the Ocean's Twelve cast, he wrapped production on Mr. & Mrs. Smith, starring opposite Angelina Jolie for director Doug Liman.

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 the latter performance.

His recent starring roles include Spy Game, in which he starred opposite Robert Redford, directed by Tony Scott. He also co-starred in The Mexican with Julia Roberts and James Gandolfini for director Gore Verbinski and in Guy Ritchie's Snatch. Pitt has also appeared in cameo roles in Soderbergh's Full Frontal and Clooney's Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. He lent his voice as Sinbad in the animated motion picture Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas.

  Born in Shawnee, Oklahoma and raised 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 Bakski'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.

Pitt, along with his wife Jennifer Aniston and friend Brad Grey, own Plan B Productions.
