In February, we reported on the upcoming movie adaptation of Moneyball, directed by Steven Soderbergh, written by Steve Zaillian, and starring Brad Pitt as Billy Beane. At the time, I said:
I hope DePodesta … mentions something about this on his blog. Hopefully he can give us a casting scoop on who’s going to play him.
Now we have our answer: Demetri Martin, of Important Things with Demetri Martin and Ang Lee’s upcoming Taking Woodstock, will be playing our favorite special assistant for baseball operations.
David Justice and Scott Hatteberg will also be in the movie, playing David Justice and Scott Hatteberg, respectively.
It’s a real film, Jack.
