Because how can you go to sleep tonight without checking out at least one picture of Brad Pitt. I know I can't, and I'm sure you ladies out there are thinking the same thing. Unfortunately (for some), this image is of Brad Pitt all bloodied up -- or, as Peter Griffin (as Han Solo) would say: "Looking all penisy." And is it just me, or does Pitt look to be doing his best Val Kilmer impersonation? This photo showed up in (I believe) the NY Post today (although it could be the Daily News; not sure, the guy reading it next to me on the train was being "all penisy" with his paper), and it's a scene from the Coen Bros. new film Burn After Reading.
In case it's tough to see in the pic to the right (click on it for a larger version courtesy of Just Jared), Pitt's nose is bloody and he's holding a bike helmet. And as much as I'd like to say he's doing his best "I'm George Clooney, and I just got run over by a 1999 Mazda in Jersey," something tells me that's not what this scene is about. Coincidentally, Clooney is co-starring alongside Pitt in Burn After Reading, which tells of a CIA agent ( John Malkovich) whose soon-to-be ex wife ( Frances McDormand) steals a disc containing his memoirs, but accidentally leaves it at the gym where Pitt, a trainer, finds it and thinks he can use it to blackmail Malkovich. Clooney, on the other hand, plays an assassin hired by the CIA to "clean up" the mess. Burn After Reading will most likely hit theaters sometime next year.
