Brad Pitt Preps To Play John Lennon

File this one under: WHAT? I'll be honest, casting Brad Pitt in anything usually means I will shell out the 13 bucks to see it in theaters, but this casting is just odd. Almost any other A-list actor would be better to play John Lennon in the biopic Pitt is prepping (especially my personal favorite, Johnny Depp, but I won't keep my hopes up).

Apparently Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, doesn't have any issues with the idea because Pitt just sat down with her to discuss his plans to learn to sing (and I'm already worried) and figure out Lennon's famous Liverpoolian accent. Despite the difficulty of both of these tasks, Ono apparently has given the actor his "blessing" as long as the project is "true to John's life."

In addition to playing the coveted role himself, Pitt will serve as a producer. Maybe he'll surprise us all and find a way to channel the Beatle in a new and interesting way.
