April 30 Geena Davis looks back on her famous sex scene with Brad Pitt

It was the role that put Brad Pitt on the Hollywood map: that of J.D., the sexiest grifter in film history, who – in the words of Louise (Susan Sarandon) – lays Thelma (Geena Davis) properly.

“There were five candidates for the part,” Davis told EW during our Thelma & Louise reunion. As the actress recalled, she did screen tests with all the possible actors, and while director Ridley Scott didn’t immediately ask Davis for her opinion on the quintet, she had one at the ready.

“They didn’t ask me afterward what I thought,” she told EW of Scott and the film’s casting director. “I said, ‘Do you want to hear what I thought?’ They said, ‘Oh, yes, of course.’ I said, ‘The blond one! Hello?’”

Pitt, that aforementioned blond one, has since become an international superstar, and according to Sarandon that’s because of how he plays off his appearance. “He, Johnny Depp… there are a few of these guys who are so beautiful, and yet they played characters,” Sarandon said.

Under the non-exclusive agreement, Cross Creek and Savulescu will finance development for a slate of director- and star-driven commercial films in the $20M-$65M budget range. Their first project together will be with Brad Pitt’s Plan B on He Wanted The Moon. As Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr recently reported, Tony Kushner is adapting from Mimi Baird and Eve Claxton’s memoior which Pitt acquired last year. The expectation is Pitt may play Perry Baird in the story of a mid-century doctor’s descent into madness, and his daughter’s attempt to piece his life back together and make sense of her own. Cross Creek’s Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson are producing with Plan B.

April 02 Filming ‘Five Seconds of Silence

Brad Pitt looked a slicker and even more handsome version of himself as he filmed scenes for his new movie in London. The actor was spotted in the picturesque area of Hampstead on Thursday, with his pretty co-star Marion Cotillard.

The pair will appear in Five Seconds of Silence, a romantic drama set during World War Two. Brad plays an Allied counter-intelligence agent who is married to, and has a baby with, a French agent, played by Marion.

Brad was pictured in character, sporting a smart jumper and trousers combo and a brown suede jacket. The actor had his hair slicked back for the role, defying his 52 years of age.

His French co-star Marion, whose character is thought to be a secret Nazi spy, looked chic in a tweed jacket, maroon beret and leather gloves.

In the film the couple have a daughter together and the pair seemed to be shooting a family day out scene, perhaps involving a picnic in the park as Marion was seen holding a hamper and blankets. The pair strolled down a street, with Brad hoisting the baby onto his shoulders.

April 02 Jim Harrison ‘Legends of the Fall’ author dies

Jim Harrison, the prolific author, poet and outdoorsman whose novella of the American frontier, “Legends of the Fall,” became a hit movie starring Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins, has died. He was 78.

He died late Saturday at his winter home in Patagonia, Arizona, his publisher said. Morgan Entrekin, CEO of Grove Atlantic, told CNN that Harrison was in his study working on a poem.

“We are very sad to hear about his death,” Entrekin said. “He left a great body of work that is going to live on.”

Harrison was a versatile writer who authored almost 40 books, including novels, collections of poems and eloquent essays about his passion for food. He was considered a master of the novella, a short novel or long short story.

His rugged and deeply humane fiction often depicted complex men grappling with their place in the wilderness, including the forests of northern Michigan, where he grew up, and the wilds of Montana, his adopted home.
