Episode 5: The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

This week we discuss the 2007 film The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford starring Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck. We arrived at this film by leaping with actor Sam Rockwell. 

Season 1, Episode 5

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Sam Rockwell

From: Matchstick Men

Chosen by:
Actor (Mike)
Film (Scott)

Sam Rockwell has done some great films, and also The Assassination of Jesse James by The Coward Robert Ford which for some reason (Scott!) we leap to next.

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Brad Pitt

To: Se7en

Chosen by:
Actor (Glenn)
Film (Mike)

Brad Pitt gives us a lot of options for our next leap. Mike chose 1995 film Se7en, a great improvement on this weeks film. This leap shows the breadth of Brad Pitt’s acting range, from criminal killer, to victim cop.
