Pratt stars in this biographical sports drama directed by Bennett Miller. He takes on the role of Scott Hatteberg, an unsigned major league catcher who is hired by Oakland A’s General Manager Billy Beane, despite his arm injury. Beane, played by Brad Pitt, puts him at first base, a position that he has not previously played. His co-stars include Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Robin Wright.
Yeah, I met Scott on set. He came and visited. He’s so close with Billy and he and his wife, Elizabeth, and three daughters came to set. He was great. He sat behind the monitors with a big smile on his face. He was telling stories and answered every question that I had. It had to be really surreal for him to have this chapter of his life being played in a movie with these huge stars. And he couldn’t have been nicer about it.
