is this suddenly a movie blog?!



It’s more than a movie… That’s the tag line Sports Illustrated is using to justify putting Brad Pitt on its cover. Pitt is playing Billy Beane, the Oakland A’s general manager in Moneyball, which is due out this week and has received rave reviews.

Pitt-as-Bean has also taken over the homepage at NYTimes.com, though in a more traditional sense: with a giant banner ad.

  1. He’s on the cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly that I just swiped from my mailbox too. Yeesh.

  2. Pitt plays Billy Beane, who is not the same baseball icon as Billy Bean, alas.
