Angelina Jolie to Kill Off Brad Pittâ€”on Camera!
Moviefone reports that Jolie has cast her man in her directorial debut, a romance set amid the Bosnian war of the 1990s, but it's doubtful that the part will do much to boost Pitt's box-office clout. Jolie, it seems, gave him a tiny role as an extra—and he's playing a soldier who gets shot to death, in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance.
But Pitt, apparently aware of the adage that there are no small parts, just small actors, took his duties seriously, no matter how inconsequential the role. A production source tells Us Magazine,
"He was lining up at 6 a.m. with all the other extras."
What a pro. If he applies himself, he might just have a future in this business.
