Pitt is probably as close as we get  today to great movie actors of the past when compared to today's crop( probably Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington deserve the same credit). The previous actors that reached that level Nickelson, DeNiro, Redford, Hoffman and  a few others are getting too old to play most leading roles. He has chosen movie roles that are most often out of character or image and challenging . He's performed wonderfully in  all and you can't blame him for choices that were screwed up by the director/producer of that film. 
I can't name another current actor that has produced the body of work he has and done so over a decade or more. The article missed several of his better movie performances.
When you compare him to  r all of the current popular actors (  Jim Carrie ( who really sucks ), Will Smith, Keanu Reves(?), Tom Cruise etc) his work to date blows them away.He takes chances , moves out of  the good looking guy stereotype and pulls it off. He is the real deal. He's an Hollywood actor with talent in the vein of the 1930s and 40s greats.

um...ever since he cheated and left Jennifer Anniston, I am not a fan of Brad Pitt.  His acting sux!  And he cannot even talk when doing interviews.  Just a "pretty" face he is.  It is a good thing he hooked up with Angelina.  That way, he can hide behind her success!  I am happy for Jen to be moving on, to a more good looking funny man, who at least has a personality!

Bad Brad: J.D. in "Thelma & Louise" (1991)

After some small roles in a few forgettable films, young Brad Pitt got everybody's attention as bad boy J.D. in Ridley Scott's "Thelma & Louise." His part was brief, but his swaggering, cavorting, sexy con man, who seduces Geena Davis' character and then robs her blind, put him on the map in Hollywood. Pitt's future "Ocean's Eleven" pal George Clooney auditioned five times for the role of J.D., but Brad won out in the end. Rumor has it that Clooney did OK for himself later on.
