"Moneyball" has proved to be an unequivocal success. With six Academy Award nominations, an extremely warm critical reception and a solid showing at the box office everyone involved must have been busy giving themselves slaps on the back to celebrate a job well done. The thing is though, it's hard to imagine whose career the success has significantly affected. Director Bennett Miller had already broken through with "Capote", Steve Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin were already two of the (if not the two) biggest name screenwriters in Hollywood, while Brad Pitt is Brad Pitt. It's probably easiest to make a case for Jonah Hill whose strong turn and Oscar nod mean he will now be able to balance his comedic roles with a few more dramatic ones.

Warner Bros. is likely already dreaming up the marketing materials for this one: From The People Who Brought You "Crazy Stupid Love" & "Moneyball" -- has a nice ring to it doesn't it? With 'Crazy' already taking over $115 million worldwide and "Moneyball" opening to $20 million and chasing an Oscar, WB isn't wasting anytime in getting talents from those two pictures together.
