Moneyball

Eager to Be in the ‘Moneyball’ Movie? Here’s Your Chance

Your chances of hobnobbing with the stars – in this case, Brad Pitt, who plays stats-obsessed Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane in the on-again, off-again and now on-again baseball drama Moneyball – remain slim. It probably won’t be your big break. But if you’ve ever dreamed of sharing the big screen with some of this generation’s most compelling talents, including Pitt, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman, you’re in luck.

Soderbergh's 'Moneyball' Headed to the Bench?

Even Brad Pitt and Steven Soderbergh can't save this one. Maybe they should call Dennis Eckersley. The movie rendition of Michael Lewis' book "Moneyball," about Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane, may be headed to the bench. Movie studios are balking at the pricey budget and minimal mass appeal. After all, it's the A's, not the Yankees. Then again, anything with Brad Pitt gets our attention and this has the potential to be one of the better baseball movies. Bummer.
