Brad Pitt is not Steve McQueen


Will the real Steve McQueen please stand up?

Brad Pitt is reportedly set to play the legendary Steve McQueen in a biopic of the world’s coolest petrolhead.

But while one of Hollywood’s biggest stars shares some qualities with the late Bullitt star, I can’t help but think he’s probably the wrong casting choice.

I like Brad Pitt and he’s definitely cool. But ‘McQueen’ cool? Not sure.

Plus, I don’t actually think he’s much of an actor either. But another screen icon immediately springs to mind when thinking about casting for McQueen – none other than Her Majesty’s finest secret agent, 007 star Daniel Craig.

Firstly, they look identical. Secondly, Daniel Craig can actually act, and evokes some proper old-school cool with refined charm and a not-too-arrogant swagger.

Thirdly, Craig has proved his wheel-man credentials by piloting the Aston Martin DBS – a car we’re sure Steve McQueen would approve of.

Just think – Craig, in a ‘Stang, hunting down baddies in a Dodge Charger. Very cool indeed.

What do you think?

  4. Don’t believe the gossip saying Angelina gave Brad Pitt an ultimatum to get hitched by June. They really are a loving pair and anyone is able to believe that.

    I always thought the two look alike as well. I haven’t heard of this movie until now, but obviously Mcqueen would be better played by Daniel Craig. Also, Brad Pitt seems to be the choice for everything these days. I like him too, but Craig could definitely capture the same character that was Mcqueen. Good article.
