Brad is ready to wow audiences in a role like we've never seen him in before. In The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Brad plays a man who ages backward. Benjamin is born as an 80-year-old baby and gets younger as he ages, a plot loosely based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. "It's such a lovely story dealing with those universal themes of family and the people that you meet along the way," Brad says.
Although Brad's character goes through an entire lifetime, different actors were not used for different ages—it's all Brad. "It's kind of Brad," he says. "With a lot of help from CG [Computer Graphics]."
