In a story from Risky Business, Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation) has joined Columbia Pictures' Moneyball.

Some of the cast members include Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman. The script was written by Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin.

Pratt will play the role of Scott Hatteberg. His career as a catcher for the Boston Red Sox ended when he ruptured a nerve in his elbow and could no longer throw a ball after surgery. He was then picked up by the Oakland A's the following year to play first base. He helped lead the team to the playoffs in 2002 and 2003 with very strong batting as a designated hitter.
