Jolie-Pitt kids are missing some teeth & Brad Pitt casting rumors

We don’t have access to these great new pictures, but if like seeing the Jolie-Pitt kids, you should definitely check these out. Angelina took Zahara, Pax and Shiloh out to the Toys ‘R’ Us in the south of France (who knew there was a Toys ‘R’ Us there?). People are already analyzing in great depth Shiloh’s missing front tooth – she’s 3 ½ years old, which does seem young to start loosing teeth. Perhaps Shiloh and Empress Zahara got into a big fight, and Zahara clocked her? Or perhaps Shiloh is just knocked out her own front tooth with that epically awesome sword she’s carrying.

Zahara looks like she’s turning out to be the great beauty of the family, and she’s wearing a little purple peasant skirt and white tank. Too cute. Meanwhile, I think Shiloh decided to dress up like some kind of… pirate? She has that sword, a hat and a “f-ck off and die” look on her face. Awesome. I love generational bitchface. Pax looks cute too – he got a haircut, and he looks like a sweetheart. He’s missing one of his front teeth too!

In one other little piece of Jolie-Pitt news, does anyone remember the weird rumor floating around last month that Brad Pitt was called in to film some emergency scenes for Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes? Within a day, the rumors were denied, but they still struck me as totally odd. First, how even starts a rumor like that if there isn’t some kind of basis? Secondly, Guy and Brad are friends, and if Guy was going to turn to anyone for a little emergency stunt-casting, it would probably be Brad. Now the rumor mill has started up again, and Brad’s name is still being thrown around… this time for a possible Sherlock Holmes sequel:

Brad Pitt has been the subject of a whirlwind of internet rumors that would mystify Sherlock Holmes himself. The “Inglourious Basterds” star was pegged for a cameo as the nefarious Moriarty, the titular master detective’s arch-nemesis, in the Guy Ritchie-directed “Sherlock Holmes,” but denials from Warner Bros. and other official parties effectively squashed that rumor.

Do you think the real Moriarty would reveal his identity so easily? No, he’d confuse his pursuers with misdirection and false leads. But just like legends, a good rumor never dies.
The Hollywood Reporter is getting in on the rumor mill by suggesting that Brad Pitt has had discussions with producers to star as Moriarty in a potential “Sherlock Holmes” sequel. The report acknowledges the previous Pitt rumors, but states that “those familiar with the script say the character [of Moriarty] is in shadow and cannot be recognized,” verifying director Ritchie’s statement that the Holmes villain is slated for an appearance — just not with any specific actor in mind.

Perhaps more important than Pitt’s potential enlistment in a “Holmes” sequel is the very existence of a sequel itself. The Robert Downey Jr.-starring action-mystery-what-have-you flick doesn’t even hit theaters until December, and there are already active plans to turn the film into a franchise.

According to THR, screenwriters Kieran and Michele Mulroney have been hired to pen “Sherlock Holmes 2” for Warners. The screenwriting pair are also mentioned as the writers behind “Justice League: Mortal,” the WB’s defunct superhero team-up project. They also wrote and directed “Paper Man,” the Jeff Daniels and Ryan Reynolds-starring dramedy about a man accompanied by an imaginary superhero pal.

So, not only is Brad Pitt maybe-possibly starring in the “Holmes” franchise after all, but a sequel is actually being fast-tracked in advance of the initial film’s release. Seems a little early to be talking about “Sherlock Holmes 2” to me, when we don’t even know if the first movie is any good or not.

Maybe I’m completely off-base, but I kind of think Brad might have done some work on this first Sherlock Holmes film, due out this Christmas. I think it was supposed to be a surprise, and it got out, and the studio tried to shut it down. I’m not saying Brad filmed a bunch of scenes or anything – but if Guy Ritchie was smart about it, Brad could have done some voice work, and maybe one scene, the “reveal” of Prof. Moriarity.

Brad Pitt is shown at the San Sebastian Film Festival on 9/18/09 with Quentin Tarantino. Credit:

    He looks so gross!!!! Ewwww!

  2. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I agree, 3 1/2 is a bit young to start losing teeth, but it very well could have been some sort of accident that led to it coming out. (my niece knocked out her brother’s front tooth on her golf backswing once, so it does happen).

    Now, I know Shiloh is cute and all (LOVE her little outfit, sword and all!) but geez Louise, Zahara is such a beauty! Little hippie-chick!

  3. crab says:

    What happened to that man?? He looks awful!

  4. ash says:

    Take some aging lessons from Johnny Depp. Eesh he looks tired and old. That overgrown salt/pepper/cinnamon(?) goatie isn’t helping anyone.

  5. Maizieloo says:

    Uh, well, he looks like a 45-year old father of 6 kids under the age of 9…

  6. Cheyenne says:

    @ crab: Six kids in five years happened.

  7. Beth says:

    Can somebody explain why everybody thinks Zahara is this violent, evil witch? I have never seen her act violently. If she hated and beats Shiloh I doubt that they would do their outings together. She definately hates the paps. Cute that she sticks her tongue out at them but I don’t see this so-called violent personality. I don’t know people are making a big deal about a missing tooth. Kids have accidents or maybe there was a medical problem. Violet Affleck has had missing teeth for at least a year but nobody cares.

  8. ash says:

    Yup, I knocked my 2 front teeth out really early on a table corner. Ouch.

  9. Mia C says:

    I am guessing since Shiloh was dressed as a pirate, her tooth was simply blacked out for fun.

  10. Firestarter says:

    That beard needs to go bye-bye. Why is he keeping that wretched thing? He looks so much better without it. The thing ages him about 10 years.

  11. cee says:

    If the beard is not for a part I think that Brad is just trying to get people to get over the pretty boy look.

  12. isn't it obvious says:

    I think the beard is for the movie as for compasring him to Depp, most of the time Depp looks just as bad as he does with his greasy hair and dirty boots. You need to compare him to Hugh or Clooney who always look presentable.

  13. Praise St. Angie! says:

    le sigh…

    I don’t think the “attitude” issue has ANYTHING to do with race.

    it has to do with the looks she gives the paps. she has such clear disdain for them, and it shows on her face, which is probably why she got nicknamed “Empress Zahara”. (side note: the looks she gives them are priceless!)

    as for her alleged “violence”, I believe that stemmed from a blind item about a family with a group of kids, one of whom acts out by hitting and crying. (I’m generalizing on the item, I don’t remember it verbatim.) Many people speculated that it was the Jolie-Pitt clan, and I believe that Kaiser is jokingly perpetuating the rumor that the hitter is Zahara.

    come on folks, there are plenty of genuine acts of racism in this world, there’s no need to create one where it doesn’t exist.

  14. love the JP says:

    Ignorant people are racial profiling Zahara because she’s AA. It’s not right, she’s fierce yes just by the way she snears at the papz, but they yell and shove to get their pictures. How terrifying for little children, they have no boundries at all. I love all the chilren, they have their own personalities and will someday be taking on great responsibilities. It’s also obvious that the children have black paint on their teeth, possibly even Zahara, it’s playing and nothing more.

  15. Anastasia says:

    Wow we got a racist on this thread.

    Shiloh apparently used that blacking stuff to make her tooth seem to be missing. It goes with the pirate theme. That’s what they were saying over on X-17.

    But really, who cares, anyway?

  16. Prissa says:

    LOL @ overgrown salt/pepper/cinnamon(?) goatie

  17. Anak says:

    WWhy she puts such ugly clothes on these kids? Girls of other artists are so pretty (Sure Cruise is the most pretty) and these ones look like kids from the 3rd world that do not have money and use the clothes of older siblings. And what about Morticia and her black clothes? BBB – Black bag of bones!

  18. Firestarter says:

    OMG! Racially profiling Zahara! ROFLMAO! Now, I have officially heard it all! Thanks for the laugh, that was a great comment, totally ridiculous, but it made me laugh!

  19. Cheyenne says:

    Um, folks… I think Isn’t It Obvious was making a joke. (At least I hope it was meant as a joke.)

    When Z gives the paparazzi the stink-eye she totally cracks me up. She’s got this look that says “I’m not messin’ with you! Get those cameras the hell outa my face!”

    Watch her when she’s around 16 or 17. She is going to be drop-dead gorgeous.

  20. Mairead says:

    I call her Empress Z as i recognise her as the future overlord/lady of the known universe 😉 And don’t worry, notes are being taken of the non-cornformists *shifty-eyes*

    Anyway. Brad Pitt. As Prof. Moriarty….. 😯

    Wine. WINE. I need wine. Lots of wine. WINE!!!!!

  21. Heavenbound says:

    He looks haggard….

  22. Brigodoom says:

    C’mon guys! Shiloh has her tooth… it’s been “colored” black! …you know the stuff… black and waxy, harmless stuff for dressing up like a pirate? Think about it… her big Bro Pax has likely lost one, and what little sister who idolizes her bro wouldn’t want to be just like him? Media and their lies/misinformation just spreads like wildfire… sheesh! Gullible much?

  23. Ursula says:

    He looks bad.

    I am not surprised their children are losing teeth early. 6 children, 3 years, super active careers, too much charity and do gooding and image focus and all that traveling cannot be good for the kids. Something gotta give. I am sorry but am not sure where it will all end. I wonder whats up with the twins.

    Sadly, I don’t think Brad and Angelina are good parents. They seem too self absorbed for that. Shi probably fell down the stairs of a private plane.
