Szerintem

Amikor négy kívülálló észrevette azt, amit a nagy bankok, a média és a kormány nem akart észrevenni - a gazdaság globális összeomlását -, támadt egy ötletük: A nagy dobás. Bátor befektetésük a modern pénzügyi világ sötét bugyraiba viszi őket, ahol meg kell kérdőjelezniük mindenkit és mindent. – A film Michael Lewis sikerkönyve alapján készült.

William Bradley „Brad” Pitt (Shawnee, 1963. december 18.) Golden Globe-díjas amerikai színész, Oscar-díjas filmproducer. Színészként a Thelma és Louise című filmmel robbant be a köztudatba 1991-ben. A nagy költségvetésű alkotásokat tekintve első főszerepeit a Folyó szeli ketté (1992), a Szenvedélyek viharában (1994) és az Interjú a vámpírral (1994) című filmdrámákban kapta. 1995-ben a Hetedik című bűnügyi thrillerben és a 12 majom című sci-fiben nyújtott alakításával kivívta a kritikusok elismerését; utóbbi szerepért Golden Globe-díjat és Oscar-jelölést kapott. Pitt szerepelt a Harcosok klubja (1999) című kultuszfilmben, a 2001-es Ocean’s Eleven – Tripla vagy semmi című filmben és annak folytatásaiban; Ocean’s Twelve – Eggyel nő a tét (2004), Ocean’s Thirteen – A játszma folytatódik (2007). Jegybevételi szempontból nagy sikereket ért el a Trója (2004), a Mr. és Mrs. Smith (2006), valamint a Z világháború (2013) című filmekkel. Második és harmadik Oscar-jelölését a Benjamin Button különös élete (2008) és a Pénzcsináló (2011) című filmjeiért kapta.

Közszereplőként Pittet az amerikai szórakoztatóipar legbefolyásosabb emberei között tartják számon, valamint számos médium a világ legvonzóbb férfiai között sorolja fel. Magánélete szintén a bulvársajtó kedvelt témája. Öt évig volt Jennifer Aniston színésznő férje, nagy sajtóvisszhangot kapott válásuk után Pitt 2014-ben feleségül vette partnerét, Angelina Jolie-t. A sajtó által Brangelina névre keresztelt pár hat gyermeket nevel, közülük hármat örökbe fogadtak. 2016 szeptemberében röppent fel a hír, hogy Jolie válókeresetet adott be.

Brad Pitt

An actor and producer known as much for his versatility as he is for his handsome face, Golden Globe-winning actor Brad Pitt's most widely recognized role may be Tyler Durden in _Fight Club (1999)_ (qv). But his portrayals of Billy Beane in _Moneyball (2011)_ (qv), and Rusty Ryan in the remake of _Ocean's Eleven (2001)_ (qv) and its sequels, also loom large in his filmography. Pitt was born William Bradley Pitt on December 18th, 1963, in Shawnee, Oklahoma, and was raised in Springfield, Missouri. He is the son of Jane Etta (Hillhouse), a school counselor, and William Alvin Pitt, a truck company manager. He has a younger brother, Douglas (Doug) Pitt, and a younger sister, Julie Neal Pitt. At Kickapoo High School, Pitt was involved in sports, debating, student government and school musicals. Pitt attended the University of Missouri, where he majored in journalism with a focus on advertising. He occasionally acted in fraternity shows. He left college two credits short of graduating to move to California. Before he became successful at acting, Pitt supported himself by driving strippers in limos, moving refrigerators and dressing as a giant chicken while working for "el Pollo Loco". Pitt's earliest credited roles were in television, starting on the daytime soap opera _"Another World" (1964)_ (qv) before appearing in the recurring role of Randy on the legendary prime time soap opera _"Dallas" (1978)_ (qv). Following a string of guest appearances on various television series through the 1980s, Pitt gained widespread attention with a small part in _Thelma & Louise (1991)_ (qv), in which he played a sexy criminal who romanced and conned 'Geena Davis' (qv). This lead to starring roles in badly received films such as _Johnny Suede (1991)_ (qv) and _Cool World (1992)_ (qv). But Pitt's career hit an upswing with his casting in _A River Runs Through It (1992)_ (qv), which cemented his status as an multi-layered actor as opposed to just a pretty face. Pitt's subsequent projects were as quirky and varied in tone as his performances, ranging from his unforgettably comic cameo as stoner roommate Floyd in _True Romance (1993)_ (qv) to romantic roles in such visually lavish films as _Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)_ (qv) and _Legends of the Fall (1994)_ (qv), to an emotionally tortured detective in the horror-thriller _Se7en (1995)_ (qv). His portrayal of frenetic oddball Jeffrey Goines in _Twelve Monkeys (1995)_ (qv) won him a Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role. Pitt's portrayal of Achilles in the big-budget period drama _Troy (2004)_ (qv) helped establish his appeal as action star and was closely followed by a co-starring role in the stylish spy-versus-spy flick _Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)_ (qv). It was on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith that Pitt, who married 'Jennifer Aniston' (qv) in a highly publicized ceremony in 2000, met his current partner 'Angelina Jolie' (qv). Pitt left Aniston for Jolie in 2005, a break-up that continues to fuel tabloid stories years after its occurrence. He continues to wildly vary his film choices, appearing in everything from high-concept popcorn flicks such as _Megamind (2010)_ (qv) to adventurous critic-bait like _Inglourious Basterds (2009)_ (qv) and _The Tree of Life (2011)_ (qv). He has received two Best Actor Oscar nominations, for _The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)_ (qv) and _Moneyball (2011)_ (qv). In 2014, he starred in the war film _Fury (2014)_ (qv), opposite 'Shia LaBeouf' (qv), 'Logan Lerman' (qv), 'Jon Bernthal' (qv), and 'Michael Peńa' (qv). Pitt and Jolie have six children, including two sons and a daughter who were adopted.

Christian Bale

Christian Bale (Haverfordwest, 1974. január 30. –) Oscar- és Golden Globe-díjas brit színész. Christian még fiatal korában háta mögött hagyta anyját és Angliából apjához költözött az Egyesült Államokba. Anyja és nővérei cirkuszosok, apja környezetvédő aktivistaként dolgozik. Három nővére: Erin, Sharon és Louise. Már nagyon fiatalon a londoni West Enden is fellépett, majd 1987-ben 4000 gyermek közül választották ki Steven Spielberg A nap birodalma (Empire of the Sun) című háborús produkció főszerepére, amiben olyan partnerei voltak, mint John Malkovich és Miranda Richardson. A tehetséges fiú Kenneth Branagh rendezőnek is feltűnt, mert fontos szerepet osztott rá a nagy sikerű V. Henrik Shakespeare adaptációban, ahol a fiatal Bale a kor nagy brit színészeivel játszhatott együtt.

Christian Bale

Christian Charles Philip Bale was born in Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK on January 30, 1974, to English parents Jennifer "Jenny" (James) and David Charles Howard Bale. His mother was a circus performer and his father, who was born in South Africa, was a commercial pilot. The family lived in different countries throughout Bale's childhood, including England, Portugal, and the United States. Bale acknowledges the constant change was one of the influences on his career choice. His first acting job was a cereal commercial in 1983; amazingly, the next year, he debuted on the West End stage in "The Nerd". A role in the 1986 NBC mini-series _Anastasia: The Mystery of Anna (1986) (TV)_ (qv) caught 'Steven Spielberg' (qv)'s eye, leading to Bale's well-documented role in _Empire of the Sun (1987)_ (qv). For the range of emotions he displayed as the star of the war epic, he earned a special award by the National Board of Review for Best Performance by a Juvenile Actor. Adjusting to fame and his difficulties with attention (he thought about quitting acting early on), Bale appeared in 'Kenneth Branagh' (qv)'s 1989 adaptation of Shakespeare's _Henry V (1989)_ (qv) and starred as Jim Hawkins in a TV movie version of _Treasure Island (1990) (TV)_ (qv). Bale worked consistently through the 1990s, acting and singing in _Newsies (1992)_ (qv), _Swing Kids (1993)_ (qv), _Little Women (1994)_ (qv), _The Portrait of a Lady (1996)_ (qv), _The Secret Agent (1996)_ (qv), _Metroland (1997)_ (qv), _Velvet Goldmine (1998)_ (qv), _All the Little Animals (1998)_ (qv), and _A Midsummer Night's Dream (1999)_ (qv). Toward the end of the decade, with the rise of the Internet, Bale found himself coming one of the most popular online celebrities around, though he, with a couple notable exceptions, maintained a private, tabloid-free mystique. Bale roared into the next decade with a lead role in _American Psycho (2000)_ (qv), director 'Mary Harron (I)' (qv)'s adaptation of the controversial 'Bret Easton Ellis' (qv) novel. In the film, Bale played a murderous Wall Street executive obsessed with his own physicality - a trait for which Bale would become a specialist. Subsequently, the 10th Anniversary issue for "Entertainment Weekly" crowned Bale one of the "Top 8 Most Powerful Cult Figures" of the past decade, citing his cult status on the Internet. EW also called Bale one of the "Most Creative People in Entertainment", and "Premiere" lauded him as one of the "Hottest Leading Men Under 30". Bale was truly on the Hollywood radar at this time, and he turned in a range of performances in the remake _Shaft (2000)_ (qv), _Captain Corelli's Mandolin (2001)_ (qv), the balmy _Laurel Canyon (2002)_ (qv), and _Reign of Fire (2002)_ (qv), a dragons-and-magic commercial misfire that has its share of defenders. Two more cult films followed: _Equilibrium (2002)_ (qv) and _The Machinist (2004)_ (qv), the latter of which gained attention mainly due to Bale's physical transformation - he dropped a reported 60+ pounds for the role of a lathe operator with a secret that causes him to suffer from insomnia for over a year. Bale's abilities to transform his body and to disappear into a character influenced the decision to cast him in _Batman Begins (2005)_ (qv), the first chapter in 'Christopher Nolan (I)' (qv)'s definitive trilogy that proved a dark-themed narrative could resonate with audiences worldwide. The film also resurrected a character that had been shelved by Warner Bros. after a series of demising returns, capped off by Batman and Robin's massive commercial and critical failure. A quiet, personal victory for Bale: he accepted the role after the passing of his father in late 2003, an event that caused him to question whether he would continue performing. Bale segued into two indie features in the wake of Batman's phenomenal success: _The New World (2005)_ (qv) and _Harsh Times (2005)_ (qv). He continued working with respected independent directors in 2006's _Rescue Dawn (2006)_ (qv), 'Werner Herzog (I)' (qv)'s feature version of his earlier, Emmy-nominated documentary, _Little Dieter Needs to Fly (1997)_ (qv). Leading up to the second Batman film, Bale starred in _The Prestige (2006)_ (qv), the remake of _3:10 to Yuma (2007)_ (qv), and a reunion with director 'Todd Haynes' (qv) in the experimental 'Bob Dylan' (qv) biography, _I'm Not There. (2007)_ (qv). Anticipation for _The Dark Knight (2008)_ (qv) was spun into unexpected heights with the tragic passing of 'Heath Ledger' (qv), whose performance as The Joker became the highlight of the sequel. Bale's graceful statements to the press reminded us of the days of the refined Hollywood star as the second installment exceeded the box-office performance of its predecessor. Bale's next role was the eyebrow-raising decision to take over the role of John Connor in the Schwarzenegger-less _Terminator Salvation (2009)_ (qv), followed by a turn as federal agent Melvin Purvis in 'Michael Mann (I)' (qv)'s _Public Enemies (2009)_ (qv). Both films were hits but not the blockbusters they were expected to be. For all his acclaim and box-office triumphs, Bale would earn his first Oscar in 2011 in the wake of _The Fighter (2010/I)_ (qv)'s critical and commercial success. Bale earned the Best Supporting Actor award for his portrayal of Dicky Eklund, brother to and trainer of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward, played by 'Mark Wahlberg (I)' (qv). Bale again showed his ability to reshape his body with another gaunt, skeletal transformation. Bale then turned to another auteur, 'Yimou Zhang' (qv), for the epic _Jin ling shi san chai (2011)_ (qv), in which Bale portrayed a priest trapped in the midst of the Rape of Nanking. Bale earned headlines for his attempt to visit with Chinese civil-rights activist Chen Guangcheng, which was blocked by the Chinese government. Most recently, Bale capped his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in _The Dark Knight Rises (2012)_ (qv); in the wake of the Aurora, Colorado tragedy, Bale made a quiet pilgrimage to the state to visit with survivors of the attack that left theatergoers dead and injured. He also starred in the thriller _Out of the Furnace (2013)_ (qv) with _Crazy Heart (2009)_ (qv) writer/director 'Scott Cooper (III)' (qv), and the drama-comedy _American Hustle (2013)_ (qv), reuniting with David O. Russell. Bale will re-team with _The New World (2005)_ (qv) director 'Terrence Malick' (qv) for two upcoming projects: _Knight of Cups (2015)_ (qv) and an as-yet-untitled drama. In his personal life, he devotes time to charities including Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Foundation. He lives with his wife, 'Sibi Blazic' (qv), and their daughter, Emmeline.

Marisa Tomei

Marisa Tomei (Brooklyn, New York, 1964. december 4. –) amerikai színésznő. A Vinny, az 1ügyűben (1992) nyújtott alakításáért Oscar-díjat kapott, ezt követően pedig A hálószobában (2001) és A pankrátor (2008) című filmekért Oscar-díjra jelölték. Olyan kereskedelmileg sikeres filmekben játszott, mint a Mi kell a nőnek? (2000), a Ki nevel a végén? (2003) és a Faterok motoron (2007). Kritikai elismerést pedig a Csillagot az égről (1996), a Mielőtt az ördög rádtalál (2007) és A pankrátorért (2008) kapott.

Marisa Tomei

Marisa Tomei was born on December 4, 1964, in Brooklyn, New York, to Patricia Adelaide "Addie" (Bianchi), an English teacher, and Gary A. Tomei, a lawyer. Marisa has a brother, actor 'Adam Tomei' (qv). Her parents are both of Italian descent, with roots in Tuscany and Sicily. As a child, Marisa's mother frequently corrected her speech so as to eliminate her heavy Brooklyn accent. As a teen, Marisa attended 'Edward R. Murrow' (qv) High School and graduated in the class of 1982. She was one year into her college education at Boston University when she dropped out for a co-starring role on the CBS daytime drama, _"As the World Turns" (1956)_ (qv). Her role on that show paved the way for her entrance into film: in 1984, she made her film debut with a bit part in _The Flamingo Kid (1984)_ (qv). Three years later, Marisa became known for her role as "Maggie Lawton", 'Lisa Bonet' (qv)'s college roommate, on the sitcom _"A Different World" (1987)_ (qv). Her real breakthrough came in 1992, when she co-starred as 'Joe Pesci' (qv)'s hilariously foul-mouthed, scene-stealing girlfriend in _My Cousin Vinny (1992)_ (qv), a performance that won her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Later that year, she turned up briefly as a snippy "Mabel Normand" in director 'Richard Attenborough' (qv)'s biopic, _Chaplin (1992)_ (qv), and was soon given her first starring role in _Untamed Heart (1993)_ (qv). A subsequent starring role -- and attempted makeover into 'Audrey Hepburn (I)' (qv) -- in the romantic comedy, _Only You (1994)_ (qv), with 'Robert Downey Jr.' (qv) proved only moderately successful. Marisa's other 1994 role as 'Michael Keaton' (qv)'s hugely pregnant wife in _The Paper (1994)_ (qv) was well-received, although the film as a whole was not. Fortunately for Tomei, she was able to rebound the following year with a solid performance as a troubled single mother in 'Nick Cassavetes' (qv) _Unhook the Stars (1996)_ (qv), which earned her a Screen Actors Guild nomination. Also in 1996, she made a famous guest appearance on the popular sitcom, _"Seinfeld" (1989)_ (qv), as herself. She turned in a similarly strong work in _Welcome to Sarajevo (1997)_ (qv) and, in 1998, did some of her best work in years as a sexually liberated, unhinged woman in _Slums of Beverly Hills (1998)_ (qv). Marisa co-starred with 'Mel Gibson (I)' (qv) in the hugely successful romantic comedy, _What Women Want (2000)_ (qv), and, during the 2002 movie award season, she proved her first Oscar win was no fluke when she was nominated a second time for the critically-acclaimed dark drama, _In the Bedroom (2001)_ (qv). Fresh off her second Oscar nomination, Marisa began acting in more mainstream films, but only a couple of them stuck out. She appeared in the ensemble romantic comedy, _Someone Like You... (2001)_ (qv), with 'Ashley Judd' (qv), 'Hugh Jackman' (qv), and 'Greg Kinnear' (qv), then in _The Guru (2002)_ (qv) and the animated feature, _The Wild Thornberrys Movie (2002)_ (qv). She returned to prominence in the hit comedy, _Anger Management (2003)_ (qv), with 'Adam Sandler (I)' (qv), alongside 'Jack Nicholson (I)' (qv) and performed "The Vagina Monologues" onstage in 2004. That same year, she appeared opposite 'Jude Law' (qv) in a remake of _Alfie (2004)_ (qv). Also in 2004, she also made a guest appearance on the animated TV phenomenon, _"The Simpsons" (1989)_ (qv), as "Sara Sloane", a movie star who falls in love with "Ned Flanders". In 2006, she went on to do 4 episodes for _"Rescue Me" (2004)_ (qv). She played "Angie", the ex-wife of "Tommy Calvin" ('Denis Leary' (qv))'s brother, "Johnny" ('Dean Winters (I)' (qv)). The following year, she starred as a sexy bar owner in the comedy, _Wild Hogs (2007)_ (qv), alongside 'John Travolta (I)' (qv), 'Tim Allen (I)' (qv), 'Martin Lawrence (I)' (qv) and 'William H. Macy' (qv). The film was a huge box-office hit, and later that year, at age 42, Marisa took on a provocative role in legendary filmmaker 'Sidney Lumet' (qv)'s melodramatic picture, _Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007)_ (qv). Usually modest, Marisa did several nude scenes with her costars, 'Ethan Hawke' (qv) and 'Philip Seymour Hoffman' (qv), including a racy sex scene with Hoffman. After working on _War, Inc. (2008)_ (qv) with 'John Cusack (I)' (qv), Marisa then took on another provocative role as an aging stripper in the highly-acclaimed film, _The Wrestler (2008)_ (qv), opposite 'Mickey Rourke' (qv). Her great performance earned her many awards from numerous film societies for Best Supporting Actress, a third Academy Award nomination, as well as nominations for a Golden Globe and a BAFTA. Many critics heralded this performance as a standout in her career.

He attended an open audition in Montreal for the TV series "The Mickey Mouse Club" (_"MMC" (1989)_ (qv)) in January 1993 and beat out 17,000 other aspiring actors for a a spot on the show. While appearing on "MMC" for two years, he lived with co-star 'Justin Timberlake' (qv)'s family.

Steve Carell

Steve Carell, one of America's most versatile comics, was born Steven John Carell on August 16, 1962, in Concord, Massachusetts. He is the son of Harriet T. (Koch), a psychiatric nurse, and Edwin A. Carell, an electrical engineer. His mother is of Polish descent and his father is of Italian and German ancestry (Steve's grandfather had changed the surname from "Caroselli" to "Carrell"). He was educated at The Fenn School, an all-boys private school in Concord, Massachusetts, then at Middlesex School in Concord. After graduating from Denison University in Granville, Ohio, he moved to Chicago where he taught an improvisational comedy class and performed with The Second City troupe, alongside 'Stephen Colbert' (qv). Carell made his film debut as "Tesio" in _Curly Sue (1991)_ (qv). In 1996, he became a cast member of _"The Dana Carvey Show" (1996)_ (qv), and provided the voice for Gary, opposite Colbert in "The Ambiguously Gay Duo". This animated short series produced by 'Robert Smigel' (qv) continued on _"Saturday Night Live" (1975)_ (qv), but Carell has joked that he auditioned for SNL and lost the job to 'Will Ferrell' (qv). Carell made a number of guest appearances on such shows as _"Come to Papa" (2004)_ (qv), _"Just Shoot Me!" (1997)_ (qv), and _"Watching Ellie" (2002)_ (qv), before landing a regular stint as a correspondent on _"The Daily Show" (1996)_ (qv) from 1999 until 2005. Carell played Evan Baxter opposite 'Jim Carrey' (qv) in _Bruce Almighty (2003)_ (qv), and Uncle Arthur opposite 'Nicole Kidman' (qv) and 'Will Ferrell' (qv) in _Bewitched (2005)_ (qv).
