George Clooney has made a habit of this of late. I can't remember the last time I actually like a movie he was in (that Michael Clayton flick was awful as was The Americans). His Ocean's 11 buddy, Brad Pitt has been getting a little more adventourous with his roles (see Inglourious Basterds) while still doing some popular stuff (Moneyball).
It looks like there is a solid chance that Mr. Pitt could be taking on his first truly villainous role; someone that most folks will have a hard time liking:
Pontius Pilate; you know, the guy that convicted Jesus to death and had him crucified.
It's not a done deal yet, but the rumor mill says it is looking good. The studio (Warner Bros) isn't confirming anything (but they did not deny it either).
Here's a clip of Pitt from Inglourious Basterds (NSFW):
