Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt can do more than just act or look drop dead gorgeous. Apparently, the Mr and Mrs. Smith actor possesses the athletic skills to become a fine baseball player.
The actor is promoting his upcoming film Moneyball, where he plays Billy Beane ,Oakland A's general manager, who manages to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players.
Brad Pitt's Moneyball co-star, former San Francisco Giants player Casey Bond, told E Online at the ESPY Awards in L.A. of the actor's athletic ability. He might have missed his calling in baseball I guess. If acting didn't work out he's pretty good...I think that he's got that in his back pocket if anything.
According to the report, Brad Pitt was very eager and enthusiastic to get involved in training for the movie while filming
Bond also added,He was out there a couple days and he took batting practice with us and stuff, threw the baseball around. He was very much involved with all aspects of the baseball side of the movie as well.
In his interview with E Online Bond acknowledged Pitt's help when it came to acting. He had a lot of great advice...When we were shooting scenes, in between takes he'd walk me through different techniques he used so everything comes across right on film...obviously he's a master at that.
