Chris Pratt, 33, takes on the role of baseball player Scott Hatteberg in Moneyball, a film based on the real-life story of the 2002 Oakland A’s, a team comprised of generally undesireable ballplayers.
Chris Pratt, 33, may have gotten himself into shape to land the role as a baseball player in Moneyball, also starring Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, but that's nothing compared to his bodily transformation for the new Zero Dark Thirty about the takedown of Osama bin Laden, directed by Kathryn Bigelow and also starring Jessica Chastain.
