Brad Pitt is one of the most diverse actors in Hollywood today, and isn't afraid to take on comedic roles. Here are some of his funniest roles to date.

By old Hollywood standards, male leads are usually expected to play the same type of character in all of their films for reasons of building trust and pleasing the audience. Today, performers are welcome to switch roles more frequently.

Although Brad Pitt wasn't quite as technically on track as some of his contemporaries, whether he relied on his dramatic talents or comedic sensibilities, Brad Pitt still attracted large audiences. The following 10 are examples of films in which he was at his peak, while living in the latter.

Bullet Train (2022)

UPDATE: 2022/12/27 13:00 EST BY SHAWN S. LEALOS

In Bullet Train, Brad Pitt plays an assassin who doesn't intend to commit any more murders and lives a quiet life. However, he is sent on a new mission that doesn't require killing people. All he has to do is retrieve the briefcase on the bullet train. The problem is he's not the only one chasing the briefcase, the others are fine with killing anyone who gets in the way.

Snatch (2000)

Stream now on Netflix

Brad Pitt's character in Guy Ritchie's film Heist was annoying at best and repulsive at worst. However, it ends up blending perfectly into a gangster movie and ends up being one of the more humorous parts of a crime comedy. It also works well, as the popular Pete is completely against type throughout the movie.

Pitt plays Mickey O'Neill, an unarmed boxing champion who agrees to fight a fight for a local crime boss. He is part of a group of travelers whom the narrator describes as "not Irish" and "not British". What Pitt does, however, is speak in an almost incomprehensible accent and stick to it throughout the movie, bringing some great comedic lines to his character along the way.

The Lost City (2022)

Stream now on Netflix

Some of Pitt's funniest roles seem too brief. The recent adventure film "The Lost City" is a good example. Sandra Bullock stars as an adventure novelist who is kidnapped when her book cover model (Channing Tatum) shows up save her.

However, the real rescuer is Pete, a trained agent who impresses everyone. There were plenty of funny jokes about Pitt's good looks and him berating Tatum for punching bad guys he'd already knocked out. It's a shame he quit the movie so abruptly.

Deadpool 2 (2018)

Available on Paramount+

While technically Deadpool 2 could mark Pitt's first live-action superhero movie, it's almost too small to really count. Deadpool assembled a powerful team of mutants known as the X-Force, which included the invisible mutant Vanisher.

This is a funny joke, because it's never clear if Vanisher is actually there, since he's invisible. Unfortunately, he was there when Vanisher was electrocuted by a power cord, and briefly revealed that it was Pete the entire time. It's a quick surprise that provides one of the biggest laughs in the movie.

War Machine (2017)

Available now on Disney+

It seems that Pitt is not always the smartest character when he plays a military leader. Such was the case with the overlooked Netflix comedy Gears of War. Pitt stars as General Glenn McMahon, a seasoned military man who finds himself Take charge of a war that no one thought could be won.

Pete is really committed to his tough and rough performance, and the more lost and disillusioned the General, the more comical it is. While the movie itself is largely forgotten, Pitt does deliver some solid laughs.

Friends (1994-2004)

Stream now on Netflix

Pete stepped into the sitcom world as one of the funniest guest stars on Friends. Pitt played Rose's former classmate Will, who joins the Thanksgiving dinner in the episode "Rumours Abound." In some meta-casting, Will also had a deep aversion to Rachel, played by Pitt's then-wife Jennifer Aniston.

As funny as the gimmick was, Pete was genuinely funny, playing a well-loved character from the show and portraying someone who wasn't popular or good looking in high school.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)

Stream now on HBO Max

The action film Mr. and Mrs. Smith is probably best known for pairing Pitt with Angelina Jolie, and the resulting media storm. However, there's a lot to like about the film itself, including its sharp sense of humor.

Killing Them Softly (2012)

Rent now on Apple TV & Prime Video

There are dark comedies. And then kill them softly. Andrew Dominik was initially misunderstood, but now appreciates that the heist ensemble sees Brad Pitt play a role he rarely plays. While he's not necessarily a villain, he's certainly in the business of killing for hire, just like Jackie Cogan.

Though his employer keeps letting him run away, he relentlessly pursues getting paid, and the film culminates in some brutally honest quips delivered by Pitt that evoke the larger flaws of American capitalism. As such, the movie will hold most viewers long after the end credits.

Megamind (2010)

Prior to his role in Deadpool 2, Pitt had the opportunity to play an animated superhero in the comedy "Mega Villain". In this widely forgotten and vastly underrated supervillain character study Requiem, the titular supervillain (Will Ferrell) has nothing to lose after finally defeating his good guy nemesis (Pitt). The destination is lost.

Moneyball (2011)

Stream now on Prime Video

Pitt was nominated for an Oscar for his sports film Moneyball, based on a true story. Pete plays Billy Beane, the manager of the Oakland Athletics who takes a new approach to winning baseball games through math. While Billy is a down-to-earth character, Pete brings a lot of charm and humor to the role.

Not surprisingly, his new approach isn't for everyone, and many of the film's funniest scenes involve Billy frustratingly trying to express his vision to his colleagues. There's also some interesting chemistry between Pitt and co-star Jonah Hill.

Ocean's Eleven (2001)

Stream now on Netflix

"Rusty" Ryan was one of the main members of the movie heist squad in Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve and Ocean's Thirteen.

However, the underappreciated moments of humor also stem from his constant ability to surprise his fellow muggers with scientific and technical knowledge he drops at random. To be fair, Rusty won't be the two on Danny's team from 11 to 12 to 13 If his IQ is not qualified.

Inglourious Basterds (2009)

Stream now on HBO Max

Pitt's attempt at a doomed film premiere to pretend to be Italian, while Aldo Rehn's performance in Inglourious Basterds makes him the funniest character in all of Quentin Tarantino's films one. Aldo is the leader of the titular team of Jewish soldiers, and he proves to be an effective fighter and a fearsome spy.

Although the film's ensemble-first credo would ultimately reduce Pitt's screen time, only for serious competition for any awards, his top grossing was not without merit, as all paths in the film trace back to Pitt's Lieutenant Aldo Raines, and the Germans would be afraid of him. Still, it's one of the best films of Brad Pitt's career.

True Romance (1993)

Stream now on TNT & DirecTV

Before becoming a household name, Pitt played the role for which he was naturally suited: drug addict, nerdy roommate in Quentin Tarantino's films.

Twelve Monkeys (1995)

Rent now on Apple TV & Prime Video

In fictional media, to its credit, real-life events are reflected in ways too mature to be faked, often with one prominent, misunderstood, silent, and even institutionalized character spewing out all answers, and spit out some more.

"12 Monkeys" wasn't the last time Pitt would use his talents and strong sense of life in post-pandemic circumstances, as distance between World War II and his Saturday Night Live portrayal of Anthony Fauci The Ph.D. is only twenty years away. Still, Terry Gilliam's time-travel-laden narrative does represent a pivotal moment in his career being thrown away at the time. He earned his first Oscar nomination as the feisty scene-stealer Jeffrey Goines.

Fight Club (1999)

Rent now on Apple TV & Prime Video

Pitt's dark satire "Fight Club" is probably his most iconic character, Tyler Durden. As an anarchist and dangerous influencer, Taylor is the kind of character that's supposed to be likable, but the audience can't help but fall in love with him. Much of that comes from his eccentric and twisted sense of humor.

Taylor disrupted society in small but disturbing ways in her work as a waiter and projectionist. with His overall worldview is a balance of thought-provoking, disturbing, and downright hilarious ideas.

Rent now on Apple TV & Prime Video

Brad Pitt's Cliff Booth as the savior of sour tripping cigarettes in Quentin Tarantino's latest - a role for which he Scored his first Oscar for acting - operating at a different pace, which was refreshing for everyone.

Burn After Reading (2008)

Stream now on Starz

The Coen Brothers triumph in this eclectic follow-up to Brand Best Picture, which somehow manages to tone down Pitt's sex appeal.

In a film co-starring his frequent collaborator and tabloid cover personality George Clooney, the crew described Pitt as a hot-headed, hyperactive idiot with more loose screws than a person, and it turns out That's enough to make it daunting to get into all their cards. After a few iconic GIFs, even Burn After Reading's staunchest critics would agree that Pete ran with everyone's hand (although he never stopped fist twitching, even after the closet scene).
