A very goofy Brad Pitt leads dream cast in Coen brothers' latest.

So how do you follow up a Best Picture triumph like 'No Country for Old Men'?

For 'Burn After Reading,' recruiting an all-star cast that includes Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich and Tilda Swinton ain't a bad start (not to mention character actor faves J.K. Simmons, Richard Jenkins and David Rasche).

Pitt is a goofball (sporting his best 'do since 'Johnny Suede') who discovers a notebook with highly classified info; Malkovich is the angry CIA agent prone to punching him really hard in the face. Feel free to amp up your expectations now.
