Watch: Brad Pitt Advises Michael Fassbender In New Clip From ‘The Counselor’

Watch: Brad Pitt Advises Michael Fassbender In New Clip From 'The Counselor'

We’re just under a month away from Ridley Scott’s “The Counselor” and the anticipation is mounting. That tends to happen when you’re working from Cormac McCarthy’s first original screenplay and working with a cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, and Cameron Diaz. While we wait to hear word of any screenings—the film’s skipped out on any festival appearances thus far—a new clip has arrived online and it name-checks a certain tough guy actor.

Running under 50 seconds, the clip features Pitt advising Fassbender—the titular counselor—about some very illegal stuff they’re about to do. And if you’re wondering about the Mickey Rourke reference, Pitt’s talking about Rourke’s turn as Teddy the arsonist in Lawrence Kasdan’s “Body Heat.” The film looks to be a pulpy good time but we’ll have to wait to see how it all turns on October 25th. Check out the clip below.
