Castigate the Casting Director?

The Moneyball movie is finally being filmed, so it seems like a good moment to take a look at the cast.

Hard to argue with the choice of Brad Pitt.

The Parks and Rec guy as Scott Hatteberg? Score.

Interesting contrast - Art Howe had the look of a great manager, but was terrible at the job. Philip Seymour Hoffman looks like a schlub, but is a great actor.

I still think this is a practical joke:

Tastes Great, Less Filling. Who the Fuck Cares! Rodney Dangerfield, John Madden, Red Aurebach, Billy Martin, Bubba Smith and a Cavalcade of Stars in 1980s Miller Lite Ads.
