    Twelve Monkeys showed he could play psycho as well as hero.

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]There are actors who are known for wild, unhinged performances: Jared Leto, Jim Carrey, and Jack Nicholson, just to name a few (whose names all happen to start with “J”). But Brad Pitt isn’t one who immediately comes to mind, something director Terry Gilliam knew when he cast Pitt in 1995’s 12 Monkeys… in a role requiring just such a performance.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]“I cast Bruce [Willis] and Brad completely opposite of what they normally did,” Gilliam recalls in the latest episode of PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing. “Bruce was always a motormouth…and Brad was always very laconic.”[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]But Pitt, according to Gilliam, “worked his ass off,” and arrived on set ready to be wild and unhinged. “This was his first day of filming,” Gilliam says, indicating the clip of Pitt going absolutely bonkers, running, jumping, and being very motormouthed indeed. “He just exploded on the set.” (Something must have stuck: though Pitt still isn’t known for craziness, he’s taken on other “motormouth” roles since, including in Inglourious Basterds and .)[/COLOR]

    I thought it was the Interview with a vampire, but even then I wasn't a fan and saw him as a star until 12 monkeys. And I loved that flick!

    Hmmm... I see I'm lacking in Pitt movie viewing. I've seen Legends Of The Fall, Inglourious Basterds and Fury, that's about it. They were entertaining but that about it. Nothing stood out to me as excellent. I thought Legends Of The Fall was about one of the most depressing movies I'd ever seen in my life. Absolutely whatever could go wrong, does go wrong, for that family, to the point where, at the time, I thought was ridiculous.

    Yeah, 12 Monkeys was some great acting as well.

    Snatch is one of my all time favorite movies. Pitt does a damn fine job playing the Gypsy bare-knuckle champion - even though you almost can't understand a thing he says with the accent. That was done deliberately after complaints about Guy Richey's previous movie "Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels". That was a good movie, but as an American I was only catching 1 out of 3 words with the heavy Brit accent and slang, combined with the rapid fire dialogue.

    All I know of Scotland is some gold courses I watch on the tours! I do know it is one beautiful looking place though!!

    Planes aren't bad. After the first time the rest are easy. And trust me, I have anxiety issues, but flying doesn't bother me. But the length of the flight may!!

    I'm in New York myself. Also a huge animal lover! Am not a vegan though, admittedly still love meat!! Just not a hunter or anything like that.

    Anyway, go enjoy the rest of the board!
