Brad Pitt - Brad Pitt Turns Rastafarian For Interview Magazine

Brad Pitt appears as both a hitman and Rastafarian for an upcoming feature with Interview magazine. The actor tells the October/November issue that he'd rather be behind the camera than acting and claims to be becoming increasingly picky about the movie roles he accepts

.

In conversation with director Guy Ritchie for the magazine, Pitt said of choosing his parts, "I want it to be worthy enough of a story to leave the family, you know? They're everything.The family is first . . . I also don't want to embarrass them." The actor, now 49, spoke of his desire to step behind the camera and it's not hard to envisage Pitt giving up the acting game to try his hand at directing. His roles are certainly becoming more mature, an Oscar-nominated turn in Moneyball, a critically acclaimed turn in 'The Tree of Life' and a recent part in the sharp political thriller 'Killing Them Softly' have established Pitt as one of the finest leading men of his generation, though there's always that underlying impression that if he could, Pitt would direct himself. Though his latest movie has been accused of having a Democratic agenda, the actor, known to be a supporter of President Obama, remained coy on his current political stance, "We're at a particularly ugly time when we're at such a divide in America, but that divide is not there because everyone is trying to figure out what's best for the people.It's there because one side is trying to win out over the other side," he said.

Though Pitt's apocalyptic 'World War Z' is perhaps his most high profile project currently in production, it's Steve McQueen's 'Twelve Years A Slave' that is by far the most exciting. Boasting a mouth-watering cast, also including Michael Fassbender and Benedict Cumberbatch, the film follows a New Yorker who is kidnapped and sold to slavery in the Deep South. The film is set for release in 2013.
