OK I am really f___ing upset right now.

* I managed to buttonhole Michael Lewis, and got this bit of news: the rebooted Moneyball movie, scripted by Aaron Sorkin, is scheduled to start shooting in June. According to Lewis, Brad Pitt's still going to play Billy Beane. But Demetri Martin's out as Paul DePodesta. Instead -- ready for this? -- the ex-football player and Harvard graduate will be portrayed by ... Jonah Hill.


No no no no no nooAYURYJHAGKJBAJBAJLBKJAGAGKGAKJHAJAJKLBAKJBAHHAVAVKHAHJAVHJAVHJVKAHHJAVKAVAJJAJVHAKK!!!!!!

Anyways, I emailed some contacts in Hollywood, and they've already made the poster for the movie.

I wonder what the effect of The Blind Slide will be on this. Anyone who sees that it's by the same author would probably be interested, but I think most people will be in for quite a surprise.

I don't see the resemblance

I don't see the resemblance here either:

I am guessing they wanted to play up the whole baseball outsider angle.
