Isn't it a bit odd that Pitt is one of the five biggest movie stars, and yet to the best of my memory he has never carried a blockbuster as the certified, A-1 lead protagonist.
Has there ever been a Brad Pitt hit? He was the co-lead in Seven and Interview with the Vampire. Snatch and the Ocean's films were ensemble casts. I would even go so far as to say that Ed Norton was the lead in Fight Club.
