“I reckon he’d be a good one,” Holland said in a new interview with Deadline. “We’ve got the same body type.”
“He’s a little bit taller than me, but that’s all right, the 24-year-old actor said. “I’m not even joking, by the way. Brad Pitt is sort of the apex of what being a movie star is. If you look at his career and the work he’s doneâ€¦ I mean he’s No. 1 for me.”
The two actors have an age gap of 33 years and began their careers in vastly different decades: the ’80s for Pitt and the 2010s for Holland. Despite that, both are accomplished A-list actors.
Pitt’s career began with minor roles in TV shows and movies before he became a leading man in films like “Interview With the Vampire,” “Se7en,” and “Fight Club.”
He’s now a two-time Oscar winner, earning one Academy Award in 2014 for “12 Years a Slave,” which was produced under his production company, Plan B Entertainment.
Pitt won his first acting Oscar in 2020 for his supporting role as Cliff Booth in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
Meanwhile, Holland was a theatre kid before he made the jump to Hollywood. His first film role was in the 2012 movie “The Impossible,” which starred Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts.
His career reached new heights in 2016, when he made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as the beloved comic-book character Peter Parker/Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War.”
That year, he also starred in “The Lost City of Z” which, coincidentally, was produced by Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment.
Holland has since reprised his Marvel role for two “Avengers” movies and a standalone “Spider-Man” franchise, which has a third instalment in the works.
