The acclaimed baseball drama Moneyball, from director Bennett Miller, opens in theaters across the country today, September 23rd. The film follows real-life Oakland As coach Billy Beane (Brad Pitt), who devised a way to form a professional team on a drastically reduced budget. Chris Pratt, who you may know as Andy on Parks and Recreation, plays Oakland As first baseman and catcher Scott Hatteberg in the movie. Our own Paulington James Christensen III caught up with the actor to chat about his experience slimming down for the role, as well as his thoughts on what is sure to be a future classic Deep in the Valley. Check out their conversation below.
