According to a report by the NY Post, Brad Pitt was not the first choice for the role of John Smith in the movie, Mr. & Mrs Smith. Earlier, the makers were thinking about casting either Will Smith or Johnny Depp for this role as they were unsure whether Brad Pitt would sign on for this role. Later, Brad agreed to essay the role of John Smith in the movie.

The makers were even dicey about the casting of Jane Smith. They had considered Catherine Zeta-Jones for the role of Mrs Smith but later, Angelina Jolie was chosen to play Jane Smith opposite Brad Pitt. The report also said that Brad Pitt had left the project after Nicole Kidman dropped out. He returned when Angelina Jolie was finalised as the female lead. 

The movie Mr. & Mrs Smith is an American action-comedy released in 2005. After considering various other actors for the lead roles, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie portrayed the roles of Mr and Mrs Smith in the movie.
