BuzzFeedgood piece on Brad Pitt's talent and why he shines in weirder sideline roles as opposed to leads...though we object to any notion that he isn't a leading man inOnce Upon a Time...but this battle is already lost since critics keep calling him supporting even before the Oscar campaign does.(sigh)

Pitt's character primarily serves to reflect and facilitate the growth of DiCaprio's.He has no character arc of his own.I understand why one would consider him a lead and do not object to that either,but supporting is not so egregious here,especially compared to the *truly* erroneous past cases of it (Steinfeld,Mara,Vikander,Stone,etc).

Jonathan -- since when does having a character arc make you a lead though?Some supporting characters in movies get character arcs.The story is about their relationship and they each get solo adventures within the movie.Equal screentime,etcetera.

But i get what you're saying about it not being "as"egregious.
