Thanks to Beth Rambo for alerting me to the latest on the film adaptation of The Sparrow, one of my favorite sci-fi novels.

Looks like Brad Pitt may be playing a Jesuit.

    Brad Pitt as Emilio? I don’t see it, but then again, I guess I will, if the adaption’s decent.

    I like Brad Pitt as much as the next gal, but he really doesn’t seem right for a small Puerto Rican Jesuit priest. I will, of course, still the movie.
