BRAD PITT (Roy McBride/Also Producer), one of today's strongest and most versatile film actors, is also a successful film producer with his company Plan B Entertainment.

In the past few years, Pitt won an Academy Award as a producer of 12 Years a Slave, directed by Steve McQueen (the film also won Oscars for screenwriter John Ridley and supporting actress Lupita Nyong'o), led a five-man tank crew in David Ayer's World War II epic Fury, starred and produced By the Sea, played a supporting role in The Big Short, and the lead in War Machine, a provocative satirical comedy from David Michod for Netflix, both of which he also produced with his Plan B shingle. In 2016, Pitt starred opposite Marion Cotillard in Robert Zemeckis' Allied. Pitt can currently be seen in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie.

In 2013, Pitt starred and produced one of the year's top ten grossing movies World War Z for Paramount. Following Z, Pitt played a supporting role in Cormac McCarthy's The Counselor, directed by Ridley Scott, as well as Andrew Dominik's Cogan's Trade. This is the second time Pitt has starred and produced a Dominik film, the first being The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, for which he was named Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival. In 2011, Brad gave two of his most complex and nuanced performances in Bennett Miller's Moneyball and Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life, films he also produced. Brad won the New York Film Critics Circle Award and the National Society of Film Critics Award for both roles.

Additionally, Brad was nominated for a SAG Award, Golden Globe Award, BAFTA Award and an Academy Award for his work in Moneyball. The movie also received an Academy Award Best Picture nomination. The Tree of Life won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards as well. In previous years, Brad 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 Gonzalez Inarritu's Babel.

In 2009, Pitt starred in Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds as Lt. Aldo Raine, and appeared in Joel and Ethan Coen's comedy thriller Burn After Reading. 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.

It was 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 Tony Scott's True Romance. Pitt also received critical acclaim for his performances in the two David Fincher films Se7en and Fight Club. His other films include Doug Liman's Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which was one of 2005's biggest hits, and Guy Ritchie's Snatch.
