Video: Meet the Characters of Burn After Reading

Brad Pitt in Burn After Reading

Having been a fan of just about everything they’ve done, from The Big Lebowski to Fargo to last year’s Best Picture winner No Country for Old Men, it is easy to say that I am excited about the Coen Brothers’ next film, Burn After Reading, by default. After hearing that the film was slated to be a comedy about two doltish gym employees who stumble upon some CIA secrets and attempt to blackmail both the government and a deranged formed spy, I was really hooked. Add to that a phenomenal cast that includes Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand and George Clooney and we’ve got a film that just about anyone can be excited about.

If you need another reason to be excited about Burn After Reading, which will hit theaters on September 12th, have a look at these four introductory character videos below.

Chad (Brad Pitt) – Trainer. Spy. Clueless.

Linda (Frances McDormand) – Single. Available. Looking for love in all the wrong places.

Osborne Cox (John Malkovich) – Fired. Robbed. Blackmailed. Don’t Play with Cox.

Harry (George Clooney) – Womanizer. Blackmailed. Exposed. Things are gonna get Harry.
