I took a film class in college where my teacher presented the idea that celebrities should never play legendary characters. In this case the reason would be that Pitt can't successfully convince us that we're watching McQueen...the whole time we'd be thinking, "hey, it's Brad Pitt." Or if they went with Daniel Craig we'd be thinking it was James Bond the whole time.

They really need to cast some non-famous guy for this role.
