Yes, That's Bobby Kotick Acting Alongside Brad Pitt in Moneyball
I don't understand why so many gaming websites are writing this up as a news story. It's a real business executive acting in a movie, it has happened before.
If people didn't hate him as much as they do, it probably wouldn't be a news story. But he's probably the most hated person in the game industry, so it is news I guess. Personally I find the amount of effort people put into hating someone who is far from the worst person in the world really pathetic. But I guess there's no hate like gamer hate. MY VIDEOGAMES NOOOOOO!!!
Kotick won't even change that scary-ass wig for HOLLYWOOD. Lovely.
I'm of two minds on this, on one hand as a Baseball fan and a Boston Red Sox fan (2007 is a textbook Moneyball Championship) I really really want to see this movie. On the other I really really HATE Bobby Kotick. Dilemma.
seriously fuck kotick. i can just imagine the process that greedy prick went through to land a role in a movie with brad pitt. this shouldn't be bothering me as much as it is, but it's clear that he's a stereotypical fat cat executive who sees the world in dollar signs and nothing more.
Its probably a case where very rich man says "I think I wanna be in a movie"
uses absurd amount of money to get a bit part. Then tells everyone "oh yea since a kid i've always wanted to act."
No dude you just have a ton of money, and use it to buy your way into stuff like this. Am I jealous....You bet your ass I am!
