First Look: Brad Pitt Channels Inner Cowboy on 'The Counselor' Set


Spotted on the London set of Ridley Scott's upcoming thriller, the 'Moneyball' actor oozed masculinity in white shirt and leather jacket complete with a cowboy hat.

Brad Pitt channeled his inner cowboy persona when spotted on the set of Ridley Scott's upcoming high-end thriller "The Counselor". The fiance of Angelina Jolie was caught on camera getting into his character when stepping on the set in Central London, England on Monday, July 30.

Rocking an unbuttoned white shirt under a brown leather jacket, the "Moneyball" actor was spotted donning a white cowboy hat. He finished off his look with some chain necklaces and aviator sunglasses.

Pitt landed a supporting role in director Scott's new project as a business associate of the titular counselor. Back in February, he was rumored to be cast as the film's major villain called Reiner, but a month later, he reportedly booked an appointment with Scott to discuss a smaller role in the movie.

"I'm only doing a few days on that. ['Killing Them Softly' director] Andrew [Dominik] and I are both Cormac McCarthy fans - I mean, I've read every word the guy's published and ost of them more than once," he once told Empire magazine about his involvement in Scott's new movie.

"So this was a chance to do something of his and also to work with Ridley again," the 48-year-old actor continued. "Ridley gave me my first break into the big leagues. And I'm a [Michael] Fassbender fanatic too."

"The Counselor" itself follows a respected lawyer who thinks he can dip a toe into the drug business without getting sucked down. It is a bad decision and he tries his best to survive it and get out of a desperate situation. The screenplay is written by Pulitzer and Oscar winner Cormac McCarthy.

Also lining up in the cast ensemble are such actors as Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Dean Norris and Rosie Perez.
