Brad Pitt Is A Character Actor Trapped In A Movie Star’s Body – BuzzFeedNews

Whether he’s playing an outsider or not, Pitt’s often at his best when he’s being observed from the outside by a more central character. In A River Runs Through It (1992), he’s the radiant, reckless younger brother who burns too bright for this world in the memories of his older sibling, played by Craig Sheffer. He’s a father in The Tree of Life (2011), looming in the life of the main character, Jack, as a figure revered and feared as he tries to shape his son into what he believes a man should be. In The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007), he’s a train robber as celebrity, radiantly and deliberately distant, refracted through the obsessive adoration of his eventual killer (Casey Affleck).
