The year was 1994 and Brad Pitt He still did not stand out as the popular figure that he is today. So, the choice of the projects in which I was going to work was very important for the development of a professional career that promised a lot, but was still being born. In this way, Brad carefully thought about his next step in front of the cameras. He had already surprised with his role in Thelma & Louise. It was time to take off!
The truth is that there is a surprising fact. Director Frank Darabont offered to Brad Pitt a role within the film The Shawshank Redemption, one of the films considered the best in the film industry. The role was that of Tommy Williams, a young man who arrives in prison and, despite having few scenes, is essential within the plot of the popular story.
The choice of Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt rejected the offer and instead chose to participate in another project: Interview with the Vampire. In this case, we are talking about a dark film that had among its protagonists all the leading men of the time. Tom Cruise, Ethan Hawke, Antonio Banderas and Pitt himself drove the female audience crazy in this cult film that tells the story of vampires Louis and Lestat.
The actor made reference to this very personal choice and said: “It would have been great to be there, but I don’t regret it. I just believe in the way things work and that was the role for someone else. Even the feeling of ‘Oh, that would have been nice’ redirects to a choice later on. Everything works together “. We can think that the interpreter believes in “destiny” if we analyze the words he chose to refer to the matter.
The Shawshank Redemption It is considered one of the best films in history, but Interview with the Vampire it is cult cinema. A choice that marked the actor and did not mean, in any way, a problem in his meteoric career, which soon followed with successes of the stature of Legends of Passion, Deadly Sins and Sweet Monos. Boy, we are not talking about great movies. Well done Brad!
