THE TREE OF LIFE

BRAD PITT (Mr. O'Brien/ Produced by), one of today's strongest and most versatile film actors, is also a successful film producer, with his company Plan B Entertainment.

He was an Academy Award nominee for his performance in David Fincher's THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON and Terry Gilliam's TWELVE MONKEYS, for which he won a Golden Globe® Award. He was also a Golden Globe Award nominee for his performances in Edward Zwick's LEGENDS OF THE FALL and Alejandro González Iñárritu's BABEL.

Pitt recently wrapped MONEYBALL as Billy Beane for Bennett Miller. This Sony picture will be released in Spring 2011. The previous year, Pitt starred in Quentin Tarantino's INGLORIOUS BASTERDS as Lt. Aldo Raine. Prior to INGLORIOUS BASTERDS, Pitt appeared in Joel and Ethan Coen's comedy thriller BURN AFTER READING, which had its world premiere as the opening night attraction at the 2008 Venice International Film Festival. The previous year, he was named Best Actor at Venice for his portrayal of Jesse James in THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD directed by Andrew Dominik.

Opposite George Clooney, his BURN AFTER READING co-star, he also appeared in Steven Soderbergh's hits OCEAN'S ELEVEN, OCEAN'S TWELVE and OCEAN'S THIRTEEN with him.

Born in Shawnee, Oklahoma, he grew up in Springfield, Missouri, and attended the University of Missouri at Columbia where he majored in Journalism. Right before graduation, he moved to Los Angeles to study graphic design, but instead began to pursue an acting career, studying with Roy London. Soon after, he began securing roles in television, including the series "Glory Days" and the acclaimed telefilms "The Image" directed by Peter Werner and "Too Young to Die?" directed by Robert Markowitz.

It was Mr. Pitt's role in Ridley Scott's Academy Award-winning THELMA AND LOUISE that first brought him national attention. He soon went on to star in Robert Redford's Academy Award-winning A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT, Dominic Sena's KALIFORNIA and Neil Jordan's INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE. He has also starred in Tom DiCillo's JOHNNY SUEDE, which won the Golden Leopard Award for Best Picture at the 1991 Locarno International Film Festival; Ralph Bakshi's COOL WORLD, Tony Scott's TRUE ROMANCE, Barry Levinson's SLEEPERS, Alan J. Pakula's THE DEVIL'S OWN, Jean-Jacques Annaud's SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET, Martin Brest's MEET JOE BLACK, and two previous David Fincher films SE7EN and FIGHT CLUB.

More recent films include Doug Liman's MR. AND MRS. SMITH, which was one of 2005's biggest hits, Wolfgang Petersen's TROY, Patrick Gilmore and Tim Johnson's animated feature SINBAD: LEGEND OF THE SEVEN SEAS, Tony Scott's SPY GAME, Gore Verbinski's THE MEXICAN, Guy Ritchie's SNATCH, as well as cameo roles in Soderbergh's FULL FRONTAL and Clooney's CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND.

Pitt's Plan B Entertainment develops and produces both film and television projects. Plan B has thus far produced such films as Martin Scorsese's THE DEPARTED, which won four Academy Awards®, including Best Picture and Best Director, Michael Winterbottom's A MIGHTY HEART, for which Angelina Jolie received Golden Globe, Independent Spirit, Critics' Choice, and Screen Actors Guild Award® nominations, Robert Schwentke's TIME TRAVELLER'S WIFE, Rebecca Miller's THE PRIVATE LIVES OF PIPPA LEE, and the Oscar nominated THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD starring Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck and directed by Andrew Dominik.
