    Coming in right under his significant other is Brad Pitt. The 45-year-old has an impressive resume featuring a wide range of roles from horror (Seven) to action (Troy) to comedy (Burn After Reading) and drama (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button). Pitt’s global box office is just under $4.6 billion and he shows no signs of letting up. Much like Jolie, he is also nominated for an Oscar for his role as a man aging backwards. The power couple of Jolie and Pitt may be second on this list but there are no doubts they are the #1 couple in all of Hollywood.

    Moneyball, the story of Oakland A's General Manager Billy Beane's success fielding a competitive team on a shoestring budget, is looking for more extras.

    Specifically, fans in the stands at the Oakland Coliseum to serve as a backdrop for the cameras filming scenes that take place on the field.

    Of course, since the story is about the team around 2002, it's not like they'd have to actually fill the stadium to present an accurate picture of attendance at the time.

    The cattle call is being arranged by BeInAMovie.com, where you can sign up for the remaining dates, which range from July 27th to August 5th.

    The hours, however, are a little odd -- one asks that extras be on hand from 10:30 p.m. until past five the following morning.

    Also, as anyone who's ever worked on a film set will tell you, bring a book. And if you think baseball is slow and boring, you might not want to bother -- making "Hollywood Magic" is about as dull as it gets.

    And it's unlikely star Brad Pitt, in the role of Beane, will be anywhere near the stadium. General managers are behind-the-scenes operators, after all.

    Jackson West figures it does, however, all serve as an excuse for Raiders fans to enjoy some off-season tailgating at least.
