Michael Lewis, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Michael Lewis has found himself in an awkward position. His book 'Moneyball' has been adapted into a critically acclaimed box office success, and yet he was a little late to the party. On 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), he admitted, "I thought it was gonna suck."

He just didn't think his book was the kind of thing that could be adapted into a quality film. So he was perhaps more surprised than anyone when the final product was coming together and it turned out to be a great film. But what does he do now after backing away from it for so long?

Jonah Hill Tells 'Late Show' About Getting Pranked by Brad Pitt (VIDEO)

Last night Jonah Hill stopped by 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) and talked about his 'Moneyball' co-star, Brad Pitt.

"He is incredibly skilled at pranking people," Hill said, and he even brought photographic evidence of one of Pitt's more elaborate pranks during filming.

Apparently, Hill was excited that for the first time he got a golf cart that was just for him to get around the set. Knowing how thrilled he was about it, the cart became the focal point of a great prank.

Not only did Pitt decorate the golf cart with a doctored photograph of him and Hill as if they were members of '80s pop duo Wham!, but he rigged the cart so that any time it was turned on, it played their hit 'Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.'

Chris Pratt may be the nicest guy in Hollywood. Hell, he may be the nicest guy in the history of the world. Best known as the lovable goofball -- and one-time jerk; we'll get to that -- Andy Dwyer on the critically acclaimed NBC sitcom 'Parks and Recreation,' the affable Pratt now finds himself co-staring opposite Brad Pitt in 'Moneyball.' Or, as Pratt bluntly puts it, "What the f*ck am I doing in this room with this guy?"

At the Toronto Film Festival, Moviefone's Mike Ryan caught up with Pratt for a wide-ranging conversation that covered his 'Moneyball' role as catcher-turned-first baseman Scott Hatteberg, and the evolution of his 'Parks and Rec' character Andy, from a**hole to puppy dog.
