Pitt is coming off a summer promoting the Quentin Tarantino period piece, for which he’s racked up rave reviews for his performance as Cliff Booth, the sidekick/stunt double for fading actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio).
The Booth character was based on Burt Reynolds’ longtime stunt double, the late Hal Needham.
