Playing Brad Pitt Can Barely Smile as General Glen McMahon in 'War Machine' -- Check Out the Trailer

Brad Pitt looks more like his pal, George Clooney, in his upcoming Netflix movie, War Machine.

Sporting gray hair, the 53-year-old actor portrays U.S. General Glen McMahon in director David Michôd's (Animal Kingdom) half parody, half reality movie about the leader's rise and fall during the war in Afghanistan. "You’re not here to win, you’re here to clean up the mess," Pitt's character is told in the newest trailer for War Machine.

The movie is inspired by journalist Michael Hastings’ book, The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story, which is about America's involvement in the Middle East. “My team and I are about to embark on a new direction,” McMahon tells President Karzai (Ben Kingsley), insisting that the U.S. is working to build Afghanistan into “a free and prosperous nation.”

“Sounds a lot like the old direction,” Karzai responds.
