BRAD PITT (Rusty Ryan), one of the film industry's most prominent stars, is an award-winning actor and has also gained great success as a producer under his Plan B banner.

Pitt most recently earned a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu's acclaimed drama "Babel,” opposite Cate Blanchett. He also shared in a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Motion Picture Cast.

Pitt next stars as Jesse James in Andrew Dominik's "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” which Pitt also produced through Plan B and is set for release this September. He then plays the title role in the romantic fantasy "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which reunites him with Cate Blanchett and marks his third collaboration with director David Fincher. The film is due out in May 2008. Later this year, he will begin filming the Coen brothers' dark comedy "Burn After Reading,” in which he stars with George Clooney and Frances McDormand.

For Plan B, Pitt recently served as a producer on Martin Scorsese's Oscar winning Best Picture "The Departed,” and Ryan Murphy's "Running with Scissors,” starring Annette Bening, Gwyneth Paltrow and Alec Baldwin. Plan B's upcoming projects include "A Mighty Heart,” starring Angelina Jolie; "Shantaram,” starring Johnny Depp under the direction of Mira Nair; and "The Time Traveler's Wife,” starring Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana. Plan B previously produced Tim Burton's fantasy hit "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” starring Johnny Depp; and Wolfgang Petersen's historical epic "Troy,” in which Pitt also starred.

Born in Oklahoma, Pitt began his acting career with smaller roles in films and on television. In 1991, he first gained the attention of critics and audiences with his breakthrough performance as the seductive hitchhiker in Ridley Scott's controversial hit "Thelma & Louise.” He went on to star in Robert Redford's "A River Runs Through It,” Dominic Sena's "Kalifornia” and Neil Jordan's "Interview with the Vampire.”

Pitt received a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his performance in 1994's "Legends of the Fall,” in which he starred with Anthony Hopkins. Two years later, he was honored with an Academy Award nomination and won a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Terry Gilliam's "Twelve Monkeys.”

Pitt subsequently earned praise for his work in the David Fincher films "Se7en” and "Fight Club”; Jean-Jacques Annaud's "Seven Years in Tibet”; and Guy Ritchie's "Snatch.” He also joined an all-star ensemble cast, including George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle and Bernie Mac, in Steven Soderbergh's hit remake of "Ocean's Eleven.” Pitt also starred in the sequel "Ocean's Twelve,” which reunited the cast and director Soderbergh; and the smash hit action comedy "Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” opposite Angelina Jolie.
