After It’s Revealed Brad Pitt Has A List Of Actors He Won’t Work With, James

Hollywood is something of a small town when you think about it. The number of people making major studio projects at any given time isn’t that big. That means it’s all the more important to stay on the good side of the people you work with. It was recently revealed that Brad Pitt apparently has a list of actors he avoids working with, and it turns out he’s not the only one. There is a “long list” of actors who will never be in a James Gunn movie.

James Gunn frequently answers questions from fans about filmmaking on Twitter and during a recent thread of answers a fan asked about the decision to recast an actor while on set, when it appears the performance isn’t working for some reason. While James Gunn says sometimes a performance just doesn’t work for any number of reasons that have nothing to do with talent, when an actor isn’t working out because they are unprepared or otherwise temperamentally unsuited, it’s a different story. Gunn explains…

If it’s their temperament & it’s serious, I’ll immediately recast. Life’s too short for assholes. Same if they’re repeatedly very late, which I hate, or unprepared. I have a long list of actors, A-list & otherwise, I’ll never work with for these reasons. But if it’s performance related, & they’re putting their all into it, I’ll do everything on my end to make it work until it’s absolutely clear the quality of the project will be perceivably harmed if we don’t recast. This can happen with really talented actors who just don’t fit.
