Brad Pitt is not only one of the best actors of his generation. He's also a bold time-traveller, journeying from Ancient Greece to the dystopic future. Check out just a small selection of historic periods he's been spotted in...

1184 BC - The End of the Trojan War

Movie: Troy

Brad begins his time-travelling journey as Achilles, the greatest warrior the ancient world ever knew. A spot of tendon trouble soon saw his spirit flit to his next role in time and space...

1791 - Spanish Louisiana

Movie: Interview With The Vampire

An undead creature of the night is a pretty apt role for Brad's immortal soul. In 1791, Lestat transformed young Louis into a bloodsucking vampire. Before Twilight, Brad and Tom Cruise set the standard for the hunky, brooding hearthrob.

1841 - Louisiana Antebellum Plantations

Movie: 12 Years a Slave

One of the few remotely sympathetic white characters in 12 Years a Slave, Brad's turn as Canadian Laborer Samuel Bass was well received by critics.

Brad morphs again into Jesse James, the notorious bank robber and outlaw, gunned down by his trusted accomplice during the daring Platte City robbery in 1882.

Movie: Seven Years in Tibet

From the American forces to the Austrian army, Brad becomes Heinrich Harrer, a soldier caught in a difficult time in Tibet's history. Hopefully his meeting with the Dalai Lama helped calm his reincarnated soul.

2001 - American Baseball League

Movie: Moneyball

Into the present day, Brad is Billy Beane, the real-life maverick manager of the Oakland Athletics baseball team. Nominated for six Academy Awards, Moneyball was aptly named...

2035 - Post-Apocalyptic Philadelphia

Movie: 12 Monkeys

You can't confine a guy like Brad Pitt to the measly timespan of us mere mortals! As anti-consumerist mental patient Jeffrey Goines, Brad reminded us yet again that he is not just a pretty face. Unmissable viewing.

Who knows what new and enthralling wormholes in the space-time continuum Brad Pitt will seek out next? What's your favorite era of Pitt?
