Brad Pitt: Pitt & Clooney’s Gay Play
March 3, 2012 by staff
Brad Pitt: Pitt & Clooney’s Gay Play, Frequent collaborators Brad Pitt and George Clooney will be working together again – this time onstage.
Pitt has signed on to the cast for the West Coast première reading of the Dustin Lance Black play 8, based on the battle to overturn the controversial Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in California.
Pitt joins a cast that already includes Clooney and Martin Sheen. He will play U.S. District Judge Vaughn R. Walker, who in August 2010 ruled that Prop 8, which was approved by California voters in 2008, was unconstitutional. (The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Walker’s ruling last month; the case is expected to travel to the U.S. Supreme Court.)
Clooney and Sheen will play, respectively, attorneys David Boies and Theodore B. Olson, who served as the plaintiffs’ co-counsel in the case that overturned Prop 8.
8 – which was written by Milk and J. Edgar screenwriter Black based on trial transcripts and first-hand courtroom observations – had its world première in September 2011 in New York.
