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.

spotted in the city: rafa on the cover of webmd (?!)




So… Apparently Rafael Nadal is on the cover of the current WebMD magazine, on newsstands now. TSF contributor and screenwriter/director Tobin Addington (who also alerted us to Slate‘s amazing grunt quiz) sent this picture with the commentary, “…WebMD magazine?!” Our thoughts, exactly, Tob.

The article, Rafael Nadal’s Secrets for Success, dives into how Rafa balances his health and his game and all the goings-on that the WebMD crowd would want to know about. Check out a crisp cover shot here.
