Brad Plays Ball
Brad Pitt takes to the field to film 'Moneyball.'
With the release of Brad Pitt’s latest movie Moneyball, not only do we get to see the A-list stud in a more modern live-action flick for the first time since 2008’s Burn After Reading, but it’s also the first time we get to hear Brad’s beautiful voice (not including Brad’s foray into animation in last year’s Megamind)!

In Moneyball, Pitt plays Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland Athletics who hails from Orlando, FL. So there’s no chance to hear one of Brad’s appeasing accents this time around! To commemorate the stud’s normal voice’s return to the big screen we’ve rounded up some of his most memorable accents to date.

As Lt. Aldo Raine in Inglorious Basterds, the 47-year-old actor was able to once again showcase his Southern charm. There’s something to be said about a man’s tone that makes you forget his track record for scalping his opponents. 

Even with the reverse aging in 2008’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Brad’s signature Southern accent was on full display. But this time with a throatier delivery to melt even the coldest of hearts.

Brad sure does love the South! In The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Brad reintroduces the public to his Southern accent. Hmmm, sometimes it’s hard to believe he wasn’t born in the deep American South instead of the Midwest!

Probably his best, and most memorable, accent ever was in Snatch. In the 2000 Guy Ritchie-directed crime film, Brad plays Mickey O’Neil, an Irish bare-kuckle boxing champ who just so happens to love his mum. Every girl’s dream, right? Brad’s pikey accent was so believable, we even had to put on the subtitles to understand him!

Perhaps the 1991 film Thelma & Louise was the beginning of Brad’s love affair with the Southern accent. Everyone usually remembers his performance as the hitchiking theif with the killer bod, but how can anyone forget that sweet Southern twang?
